My son has attended this school for three years. The teachers are like family to each other and with the students and their varied families. I feel that my son is safe and his well rounded education is of primary importance. Teachers have helped with behavior modification and taught him to read at advanced levels. He has been inspired by the wonderful teachers and administration appears to be very good.
