    This is my daughter's first year at CHA and she loves it!

    One of the biggest reason I like about CHA is the head of school, Ms. Senaga. She is deterministic, friendly to talk to, and lead without authority.
    We couldn’t be happier with our choice of enrolling our son into CHA. The staff is extremely friendly, and the teachers and principal are very invested in the welfare of children.

    There is a really good balance between academics and all-round development of the children. Whenever I interact with the older children in the school, I am impressed with how confident they are. We love the school.
