As far as we can tell, this is a school that really values the mental health of each child that attends. It's such a nurturing environment, which promotes positive learning, and physical and mental development. The class size is unparalleled, in that there are 5 children in the JK class this year. The individual attention they receive really sets a child up for success. I really like the idea of having multiple uniform options, which teaches my son how to dress up occasionally, and he feels so proud of himself, wearing a suit jacket and a tie, once a week. Another fantastic feature for the JK's is that they get their own locker. This is something that my 5-year-old finds especially cool. He gets to feel like a big kid, and it also teaches him independence and organization.

There are so many opportunities for personal growth at this school so that each student can thrive academically, emotionally and socially. They are treated as unique individuals and the school strives to accommodate the specific needs of each student. The students are inspired to learn not just through the academic program but from each other. They incorporate a lot of fun and activities into daily school life. With the school's size and the level of communication the parents have with the faculty, it makes for a very positive relationship from a parent's perspective. All of the teachers are approachable and always make themselves available. We can honestly say our children never complain about going to school and they are actually excited every morning to go to school!
