My son has been at Alafia for 1 year. I have had some bad experiences since we moved to Florida, but have to say Alafia is by far the best school. We have had to move and will not be back next year but I can only pray his next school is as wonderful as Alafia. The teachers are wonderful and treat our ...  Read more
