I really love this school! The staff is really great and they truly care about the kids who attend this school! My child is currently enrolled in the pre-k program and I must say that I am very impressed! They go above and beyond to make sure that my child is able to comprehend what is taught in class and works hard to strengthen her weaknesses. I am a parent who likes to keep up with my child's progress daily and the teacher had no problem creating a daily report for me. In doing so, I can help my child at home in the areas she needs help with! Every child has a different way of learning and they cater to each child's needs. Who could ask for more than that!!!

I feel this school has excellent teaching tools for children to develop skills to help them adjust in society. Their students safety program is priority based. If I were to rank this school from 1-10 it would be a 10 being best.
