I have two children who wher enroled here first was pre-k handicap for 2 yrs and the other from k to 1st grade and I will say the special needs department here are the best. Sexton is good for advanced kids, not average or below!

Excellent school with very involved teachers who appreciate parental involvement. The Principal, Pat Davey is wonderful and she is on-hand at all times, taking care to know the students one on one. I recommend this school.
