    I know for a fact that this school has been the best school for my daughter. Her academic programs are excellent it has helped her to grow in areas that was needed. My daughter has been a student here at MRP since Kindergarden and from that 1st year to this year bein her last she has a very high level of wanted to learn more for when she gets out in the world. MRP teachers are very excellent with their students they take great pride in what each and every students needs are as far as understanding material that will further help them to learn. I myself have been much involved with keeping up on PTO meeting and conference with her teacher. I would like to thank all the staff even the nurse for part take in my daughters life while at MRP. I know she will always remember the good times at MRP. Thank you.

    Parent of a preschool and developmental student i found that they are extremely welcoming and all the teachers and aides and tutors are wonderful and extremely experienced. This is not our home school but wished it was. This is one of the best schools i have seen and been to.
