  • this is a great school. the full day kinder program is both very focused and educational while also enjoyable, making the new routine a little easier for our little angels to get used to. However i do believe first grade moved a little too slow not enough new info a lot of review.The wonderful staff make it a very comfortable place for the kids and the parents. Thank you to the principal for running a great show.
