  • My daughter is in kindergarten at this school and it is absolutely wonderful! She is learning things at a much faster rate. She is way ahead of the public schools! Teachers care a lot about the students. She is given extra work to challenge her more. which is always nice to keep the students thinking and busy instead of getting into trouble!

  • We love sending our children to this school. The teachers and staff are WONDERFUL. The teachers are approachable, kind and willing to discuss anything. They really care about the students. My children really like the school as well.

  • My son is in first grade at this school and we couldn't be happier with the quality of his learning. The teachers and staff are caring and kind. They are definitely NOT against creativity and free will (as the previous rater suggests) however they are FOR teaching students that they need to follow rules in life, including the dress code policy that is in place. Obviously, this parent doesn't know how to follow rules themselves.

    I highly recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a great school in the Parma area.

  • A kindergarten student got suspended for having a Mohawk. As the Faculty claims, It was a distraction to the other students, and was against their policy of not being poorly groomed.

    This institution, is set against creativity and free will. I would not send my children to school here.
