    My daughter attends this school for Pre K last year and this year. The teachers that she have are very good with the children. My daughter loves her teacher Mrs. Brown. My daughter has excelled in many ways. She was ready to go to the next grade but was not able do to her birthday was after the cut off date. I would recommend this program. Im not sure she will be attending this school next for K.

    My daughter has attended this school for pre-k and kindergarten so far and I am extremely happen at my child's ability to excel. She is counting to 100 and she can tell time. She can do her homework by herself without me constantly having to help her. The teachers and staff seem to care about the children and their education but when it comes to communicating with each other as well as the parents this is where this school fails. Hopefully they will work on this and be more active with the parents all year long and not just at report card conferences.
