I twins that started in Kidergarten here this fall. They have adjusted well and I feel very welcome at the school. As a teacher for another district I am pretty critical about curriculum and programming. Overall my wife and I have been very satisitified!

My daughter attended full-day Kindergarten for 2008-2009 school year. She did exceptionally well in the program. I was surprised that at 5 years-old she already knew how to read! The homework assignments and learning games enhanced what she learned in class and allowed us to work together as a family at home which was great.
