    There's a reason this school has been rated a 5. They are extremely unorganized and their children have failed testing year after year. To this day when I ask my child if he wants to return to Young Scholars his response is "No"..."I don't like it"..."It's dirty". When joking with him that he was going to return to Young Scholars he began to cry. One word...RUN!!!

    My kid is learning well at Pre K classes ....all the teachers are very cooperative ....Take take care childs individual needs ... They are very frindly and school atmosphere is very Homely.......Specially Miss Kiki is very understading & Cooperative .... This is the best place to Start Kids Study ...

    I love this school. I'd tried other schools and none of them were comfortable for my pre-k and kinder daughters. Since they've been at Young Scholars they have blossomed. I never thought I'd see them excited and ready for school. They've been there going on three years and are happy. The family atmosphere and one on one attention are awesome.

    Young Scholars is an Excellent School! My child went to Pre-K there and I must say after coming out of there he's reading on a 2nd grade level and his social skills have improved drastically. I love how the teachers were able to give the kids one on one attention. You feel the love there as a whole.

    I love this school the people are the best the teachers really truly care. The kids are comitted to learning and the food is homecooked and awesome! I couldn't ask for a better place for my children to learn. They actually look forward to school days and both love and respect the wonderful teachers!

    My daughter and son have gone to this school for 3 years and I love it. I think the students are taught well and have a lot of hands on experience. I would recommend it.

    This school is also a daycare facility. My daughter has attended since the age of two. They have a great focus on not only academics but also on the children's social and emotional development. Because of the nuturing environment provided at Y-SAFE my daughter has flourished. She began reading at the age of three and in the first grade is now reading on a third grade level.
