    I love this school and they do such an amazing job teaching my Preschooler

    My son has started this school year in Kindergarten. Ever since he has been there I have noticed his skills just improving more and more. I am very proud of him and I am so happy with the education that he is getting from Thaxton. I went there as a child myself and I am so glad that he will have the chance to go there also. He is always coming home and showing us the new things he has learned.He loves his teacher Mrs. Brown and all of the new friends he has made. I know that this school will really help my son in his development.
