This school, while new, is so solid. I've worked as an elementary school teacher for 12 years. When I see these teachers deal with my 2 daughters, I can tell, the institution as a whole has it together. It's wonderful to see. They are organized, responsive, helpful, and ultimately, teach your kids extremely well. One of the great examples of why blue valley and overland park schools excel.
