  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 21, 2010
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This is a great school! My daughter's educational level is leaps and bounds ahead of her peers in "private schools" in the same district. Teachers and admin make the school fun, interesting and constantly communicate with the parents. Learning should be exciting; Dr. Carlos J Finlay teachers and admin make this happen.
