Ashlawn, Great school with great community feel. After school enrichment is great, helps kids learn skills which might have been hard to learn because of time constraint for the parents. It provides enriching experience for all involved.

Ashlawn is a gem! 18 kids per class, amazing administration and teachers and the school focusses on teaching the children how to be global citizens.
