This school is unique. The teachers and principal actually care about the students. Students are encouraged to do their best. It’s only been an amazing experience for my children.

I couldn't ask for a better teacher for my son. She is always engaging them whether educationally, emotionally or spiritually. A few, not all, of the "specials" teachers do not seem as invested in the children as his teacher.
Thus far, it has been a great experience!
