Please share anything else about your experience This is school is very nurturing, and they challenge the kids with classwork/schoolwork everyday, yet, they also take their time to make sure that the individual student have the tools they need to grasp the work. Small classes so the students receive individual attention and the school has a family feel. The kids are very polite and mannerly and the older students look out for the younger students.
They now have a pre-school and day care program which is excellent. Would recommend this school for those looking for quality education and not the “big box” feel.
