My son attended here for preschool and currently in kindergarten. He loves it there because all his friends in our little neighborhood go there. I love it because it's close and he's learning new things everyday. But unfortunetly and fortunetly we bought a house so he has to attend a different school which kind of upsets me but I know he will make new friends and keep current ones too. Also I love the size of the school which is not too big and confusing.

This is the school that my grandkids go to. They are very loving and care about the students not just as a number but as an individual and strive to make the learning experience fun in the process.

My daughter attends Zanewood at this present time and I must say I am very disappointed with this school. They don't return phone calls, the office staff is very rude, and all they have is excuses when there is a problem. I am looking to put my daughter in another school. My daughter attended last year and all I had was problems. I thought I would give them a shot this year but already I'm having problems with them. I think they should start by getting rid of some of their office personnel and go from there maybe things would improve.If you ask why my daughter was there in the first place convenience the school is a block away. I will say the only bright light there is Ms Percic.
