It is a very structured, no nonsense environment. The kindergarten kids get 2-4 pages of homework every night except for weekends. The building is new, bright, clean and air conditioned. The classroom is big, but so is the class size, 25, and there is no assistant teacher. We do, however, have many parent volunteers. The kindergarten teachers are both fabulous. Our daughter's is strict, but very warm and loving. The kids all seem to respect her & really love her too. Reading and writing are strongly emphasized...a good portion of the day is spent working on these skills in some form or another. In addition, they learn math, science, music, dance, gym, social studies, art, conflict resolution and Spanish (taught by a parent volunteer). They also go on many class trips, which parents are encouraged to go on and help. In short, we think it is an amazing program.
