The school is excellent. The teachers care about the students and always available for help. The principal is very enthusiastic and efficient. Students are well behaved, and parents are involved in the school, especially Elementary and Middle. The settings allow the kids to have time to pursue their talents and passion at a high level, sports, music, theater, etc without neglecting academics. Unlike “regular” public schools, the school offers a lot of extracurricular activities done by parents or teachers . This is the proof that with good management, great staff and great teachers, you can do a lot on a shoestring budget, unlike the other SD District schools. They are getting results in local, state and national science fairs. Students also are getting awards in high level sports, music and other competitions. Our daughter started at 7th grde and never wanted to leave until she graduated from high school. She was accepted to several top colleges across the country.

Great school and great teachers and staff who are passionate about what they do. People don't quite realize that an independent study environment is actually closer to the college style than public school or homeschool. This school helped elevate me and helped me establish better time management skills that I was able to use in college!
The school is excellent. It is small but there is great support from the teachers and the staff on site. My daughter has the best of both worlds. She gets to learn at her own pace and attend all the extra curricular activities that she likes. My daughter is very motivated and loves to learn. So glad that I made the switch. Finally an environment where she can thrive. We drive once a week about an hour one way just so that she can attend the school and be with her friends. It's a commitment but so worth it. Highly recommend it!
