My daughter attends Zaharis and it has been the BEST experience we could have asked for in a school and teacher. Ms. Kuhlman is FABULOUS and we feel very blessed to go to such an amazing school! I have never heard of such an engaged, caring, active, public school... but it does exist at Zaharis!

There is no better school out there! You seriously won't find any better! Everyone works together to create an environment unparallelled to anything you've every seen! You have to go see it to believe it!

Zaharis is like a private school disguised as a public elementary. The principal and teachers are so involved in creating a comfortable learning environment.

I have been so impressed with Zaharis. What a welcoming environment for children and their families! At this school, kids learn by doing. They are becoming readers, writers, mathemeticians, and scientists. Students and teachers learn alongside one another, and it's evident that they are all actively ...  Read more
