I LOVE this school! The teachers are wonderful and so hands on. If your child is behind in any subject they pull them out of class for one on one tutoring.

This school provides the closest thing to home school in a public environment. Parent involvement is encouraged therefore I can be up there as much as I want to and know what is going on at the place my son spends most of his time.
