I went to this school a really long time ago, from kindergarten to 2nd grade. I may not have been there for very long, but it still made a huge impact on the person I am today in a very positive way. I still remember Paul teaching me how to multiply by multiple digits, and I still remember Kathy teaching me how to read for the first time. Their kindness and talent is forever engrained in my memory, and I will always be thankful for that.

Over 7 months ago my wife and I began our search for the perfect preschool for our perfect son. Yes, I know. I know there is no such thing as a perfect school, but we think that our son is perfect.This school is a phenomenal school. It comes close to being a perfect school. In the short time that our son has been there he has learned more than he had the year and a half at his old school. We were so impressed that we've enrolled our 3rd grader. Don't miss this school.

My daughter is graduating and we will miss the school and teachers since it is like her second home. I know they have instilled in her the love of learning which is priceless. She has a sense of responsibility for her own education and has advanced beyond expectations and her grade level. You know the school is right when a child wants to be there.These are her words, "I love it!"

I have had both my kids attend this school. The administrators and the teachers are amazing and they care about the kids. The class sizes are kept small, and this helps give the kids a better learning environment because they get a lot of attention. Both my kids learnt to read and were doing math between the ages of 3 to 4. You could not possibly get a better school and a better foundation for their future education than you would from this school.

The education in this school is amazing. Far above what I've seen anywhere else in the North Hollywood area. They have 3 year olds adding, writing their names, and reading simple sentences. The teachers are all very caring! A true hidden gem!

About this school

It is our belief that Education includes three basic components: 1) the development of the child's self-esteem, his or her ability to see himself or herself as a capable and independent human being, 2) academic excellence 3) caring environment. Capable and Independent Success in school is directly related to the degree to which children believe that they are capable. It is critical that we develop within each child , a sense of responsibility, independence, and most importantly, self-esteem. Academic Excellence Academic Excellence should be anchored on the essential skills needed for lifelong learning. Not only the fundamental skill of reading, writing, arithmetic, but also on the developing strong work habits and strong study habits. To straighten and propel these skills it is extremely important to develop a dynamic sense of love and curiosity towards learning. Caring Environment A caring environment enhances the students ability to pursue academic excellence. It is our intent to provide an environment that is safe, wholesome, warm, and caring. An environment that radiates the positive feelings of home.
