Posted August 11, 2003

To be honest I was apprehensive to send my children to Culler. It is a very culturally diverse school and because of this I heard stories about strong tensions between different racial groups. This impression couldn't be further from the truth. Going to Culler gave my children a great foundation and taught them about the many different cultures they will experience in the real world. The teachers and principals at Culler are wonderful and work well with this age group of students. Great school!!
