I am so disgusted with this school!!! First off the school does not have a gym for the children so they are asked to pay $60 every quater to go to the YMCA ... shouldn't that be included inbtuition?! Secondly....the school year ends 6/13/14 and they want to collect a full months tuition...NONSENSE! The teachers for the most part are good....but this school and the mess!!!!! Not a happy parent, needs better structure and leadership!

I also wanted to add that the class size is NOT 12 per teacher. It was more like 20 - 25 students per teacher. That information is incorrect.

I love my school. My daughter has been in this school from second grade and will most likely be there until eigth grade. I enjoy the fact that the teachers are able to do more one on one with the students the class sizes are great. Love my teachers and I believe they work well with the parents. My child will be a 7th grader this September and I look forward to the school year. Most importantly we have a new principal who has taken the school to new levels. Looking forward to our new year.

My daugher just graduated from this school. I can't rave enough about the academics. The students are prepared for high school. They take the NY State math and science regents and have a high passing rate. My daughter spent her entire schooling up to this point in this school (Pre-k to Elementary). Now she is more than prepared for High School.

My son start school this summer and it was a huge disappointment. The teachers give no input in his development and even when I asked no can answer me. The secretary treated my son better than the teachers. My son wakes up every morning hating the school. I will pull him out. This school proclaims christain education but what is the sense of that when they cannot even greet child and parent with a simple hello.
