What They Are Saying

“The school offers an enriched, high quality academic program for children who are often bored and overlooked in the traditional classroom. The expectations for both students and families are high, but that's is why parents choose this particular school for their children. I am impressed with the quality and level of instruction. Extra-curricular activities are limited - but then again, that's not why I send my child to school. I can arrange soccer, dance, music lessons, etc. At school I expect a focus on learning and intellectual development.”*
