I went to this school and gained the confidence and self efficacy that made me successful all through my school career. I now send my daughter to this school where I have 100% confidence that the teachers are good- because I know them (staff turnover rate is extremely low) Any program can be good, but

I have observed here as an early childhood educator and have seen that they actually follow the Montessori Method, unlike a lot of Montessori schools.

These kids learn responsibility AND creativity here. My daughter s teacher sends her own grandkids there- sign of a GREAT school. Read less
