  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school is incredible. Just imagine having a private school environment and educaiton for no cost. My girls both love this school. I cannot think of one teacher that is not "engaged" or happy to be at this school. Mr. Simon, the principle is very involved with the students and trys to provide every oppportunity for them to have the best learning environment possible. I would pay for my children to attend this school. The children also learn Spanish and my youngest is learning sign language very quickly. Can't say enough. Check it out for yourself.
