I sent an email to tour the school when my daughter was two and they replied to me right away and they didn't to tours. Okaaay. Despite this I decided to apply blindly when my daughter was four and ask for a tour before the school year begins - the process to apply was easy and painless. I sent an email a couple of months later letting them know i applied and asking when an open house/tour might take place before the school year begins. They replied ONE MONTH LATER! that they will be having no tours for the remainder of the year - it's March. WTH? I guess no one gets to look inside the school unless you make the lottery? Again, WTH? Not only that, the lottery was 3 weeks ago and I've yet to hear from anyone. I guess the only people they get back to are those who DO make it? Ugh, great school or not I've lost interest. Bad "customer" service. Bad, bad, bad.

My daughter attends kindergarten at FACTS. All of our experience have been nothing but wonderful! The teachers and staff are super friendly. Creatively and academically this school soars. My daughter loves going to school and can't wait to teach me all of the wonderful things that she's learning. How many parents can say their 6 year old is teaching them Mandarin?! I am so grateful for FACTS and have the utmost confidence in my daughter's education!

FACTs has great teachers that care. They make learning fun and interesting to the students. Children blossom and don't get lost in the crowd. Everyone knows eack other and it's like a second family.

This is a great school, my two sons love attending and they love their teachers. The staff is always professional and polite but most of all, they care about each and every student attending their learning facility.

My son actually likes going to school and loves his teachers. Worth its weight in gold. The cirriculum is much more creative and effective than the over burdoned public school he formerly went to. Highly recommended.
