The teacher student ratio is great. My daughter has been on the A honor roll since Kindergarten. I would never let her go to school anywhere else.

The academic programs are exceptional. The small class size allows for one on one instruction with children having any difficulties. A music program is provided for elementary and the town provides extracurricular activities, such as baseball and teeball. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child's education and are invited to even have lunch with their children on any given day.
