We are so grateful to Ms Kayla for being such a great teacher! She is so kind, warm, and patient with our child. We love the mood in her classroom and the gentle way she holds expectations in the class. THANK YOU Ms. Kayla!
What a difference a couple years make? Major if you have a great leader like Ms Keener taking over. While she is very mindful, she leads the teachers, staff and the entire school. I give her a lot credit for putting together a young, vibrant team that I hope stay for a while. Our son is in second year of preK, we've had two different head teachers, both amazing, one moved up to kindergarten and our new one is great at taking care of and giving behavioral lessons while affectionally hugging our children and referring to them as loves...she is amazing. The support teachers at my son's class bring nearly two decades of experience each, they work very well as a team with our head teacher who is young. They collaborate and provide consistent care for the kids. I am the type of parent that will take things year by year and so far I am feeling absolutely lucky that we even got a spot at this school even though the commute is challenging. As long as Ms Keener and our sight administrator Ms Marylin are here, we are not going to change schools. Hopefully our second son will be in when he turns 3 next year!
This is our second year at the school and we've been amazed by the incredibly responsive and stimulating curriculum and strong community. We didn't seek out a Montessori curriculum but now are very impressed. Individualized work plans are put together and students are allowed to excel beyond normal lessons without having to be put in a special "advanced learning" program. The after school program has a very rich offering. Students are taught to be responsible, open minded and worldly. This school is rocketing upward and we are thankful to be a part of it.
