We recently moved with our 2nd grader and kindergartener. They couldn't be happier at school. On every level, we have been more than pleased with communication and availability of the staff. Our son's kindergarten teacher is especially amazing...so prepared, thoughtful and skilled. She goes above and beyond and truly loves and understands children. Our experiences with this school have been wonderful.
