    I am a proud mother of a lil fireweed academy student. When my daughter first started getting the overlay excited jitterbug for her first day of kindergarten I too got quiet jittery. Highley age 6 is very outspoken and I'd say extremely confident in her abilities. I knew with her being so head strong she needed the proper enviorment to grow and learn at her pace in her way. Public School while wonderful holds no candle to this school. Lil Fireweed Academy has a new way of making the public school for the public. The exciting inventive hands on atmosphere is exactly what my 6 year old needed. What an amazing staff miss kiki Kim Jon and Deb I tip my hat to you for you are by far an amazing group of educators.
