My children have been attending cloud for the last 5 years and I believe it is a good school. The teachers are always willing to help the students and open to parent teacher communication. As a parent who is always checking up on her child or calling for one reason or another I should know. Cloud is a great school. I am glad to have my children attending Cloud.
