Posted January 27, 2012

My child LOVES the middle school. Her personality has blossomed since attending the Stride Schools. I wish I had her attending the school, sooner then I did. The smaller class room sizes, give the students a chance to work with the teachers, when a problem arises. All of her siblings will be attending the Stride schools as soon as they are able too. I feel the schools are better equiped to handle the student's needs then the rest of the district is able to.
