    I really have enjoyed the education that my children have received at this school. There level of academic excellence has far surpassed what I was expecting. The children seem to be enjoying what they are learning and they are constantly being challenged. This scool is definitely a grade A school in my opinion.

    I love this school! This school was the best thing that could have happen to this area!! Everything is excellent from the principle down to the academic program they teach!! I miss this school but will soon try to get her back into Gibson!! For this school to be in a "poor" area us parents are really involved in the school and activities!

    I feel this school is a good school and is doing a great job. It has improved tremendously and the teachers and Principal or more than just leaders but care about the lives of the children. I love the scholar program which gives students a chance to move up a level if needed or to progress at their academic levels. I love the performing Arts program they now have. There are music chorus drama and dance classes and a big performance on this Tuesday. It is getting better for a new school and in Overtown and is one our community and neighborhood needed. I will keep my two kids there and highly recommend the school to others who are looking for that "private" education for "free."
