My son is about to graduate from the collaborative headstart/preschool at Buffalo Elementary. It has been a good experience overall. He has a wonderful teacher and has learned a great deal. He knows everything he needs to know to start kindergarten. I feel it has given him an advantage. The level af parent involvement is very high. Almost every parent, sometimes moms & dads both are involved in volunteering in the classroom, on the playground and helping set up parties, etc. I would definitely recommend it to other parents.
