My child is 6 now and going to the 1st grade. As a parent I can only speak on experience with the nearby school in our neighborhood. My son attends Cedar Valley and he loved it! I checked out the schools and Cedar Valley has one of the highest ratings by parents and academics. I love how the teachers and faculty pay extra attention to thier students. I have asked other parents about other schools and thier experiences, I can honestly say they definitely do not have the quality and success as Cedar Valley. My son was reading before the end of the 1st semester of his Kindergarten year and at the end was doing Math. I know 2 other schools that match up to Cedar Vallley one is Harker Heights and one in Copperas Cove. Good Luck.
