Love, love, love this school. If you want your kids to learn in a logical hands-on way, and learn about the world and other people in a way that a test can never account for, this is the school for you. It is truly a special place.

Each child here is guided by teachers individually to ensure they completely understand the lesson before they can ...  Read more
