My children have attended for the last year. The teachers are all very capable. They are all GT certified and also have additional education in many different areas. The music program is one of the greatest that we have encountered. De Leon also offers a very organized GT program for all kids starting in first grade. Parents are welcome to be involved in all aspects of the education of their children. De Leon is also a 'Title I' school making them eligible for additional tax dollars from the state. Also, De Leon does background checks on all volunteers, so you know that your children are in a safe environment.
