School Reviews

5  
A fantastic little school! It has a top-notch early childhood program for ages 3-5, small classes grades K-5 (6th to be added in 2011) with great teachers, in a new (built in 2000) spacious school. We've been particularly impressed with the sense of community and the high quality of instruction music, art, technology, natural history, and sports.
