  • This is an amazing school. The new principal (Don Doran) and the administration have worked to make this one of the best education options in the city. The parents are super evolved and the teachers are engaged. I am always happy to get the monthly newsletter from my son's teacher who also makes herself available to parents via email and phone throughout the year. As a parent I can't think of a better place to send my son. He has blossomed over the past year.
