  • Excellent learning environment consists of of a maximum of 15 students per class. Teachers are very open communicators. They treat your child like a human and not like a number passing through the system. My son's teacher tells him that she loves him and and gives him hugs on a regular basis and he's a 5th grader this year. It's been a very positive experience for the both us and this is our second year.
