    We've traveled here and there and have had our kids in both public and private schools. I really couldn't be happier with Alcott. We've had a couple teachers that blew us away - going far beyond the call of duty and really getting to know how to help our children thrive. I have had great dealings with the principal as well. While not nearly as important as the staff it's worth noting that the school building is brand new and lovely.
