    We have had a very positive experience with this school My daughter being in kindergarten is motivated to be in school every day because of the new and wonderful things she has been learning . We think that the curriculum is excellent and gets my child to be more interested and competetive in learning. Mathematical and Reading skills have improved tremendously and her over all General Knowledge has had a great impact on her personality. We love the school! S & S

    I've had a very positive experience at Arrowhead. My son is now going into 3rd grade. At the kindergarten level my son knew all 26 sight words was writing complete sentences in a journal and was able to read basic books. In 2st Grade he became a fluent reader and a good math student (addition/subtraction) In 2nd Grade my son was able to excel in Math (from Multiplication to divition). Also he learned a lot about history and science. Also he learned a lot about geography. By the end of the year he was doing book reports and using computers on a weekly basis. I also have a daughter who started this past year in kindergarten. She is a slower learner than my son and Arrowhead was very accomidating to her needs. The teacher kept me very well informed of her progress throughout the year.! Very happy Melanie M.
