    i had been in this school for 2 years. this year's 8th grade will be the first class to graduate from k-8. its very exciting to be in the first class that went from kindergarten all the way to 8th grade. i may not be a parent but i highly recommend this school

    I already graduated from FACTS but I've been there since kindergarten. I love FACTS so much it has thought me a hole lot about life and i'm going to miss that school so much.

    My daughter attends kindergarten at FACTS. All of our experience have been nothing but wonderful! The teachers and staff are super friendly. Creatively and academically this school soars. My daughter loves going to school and can't wait to teach me all of the wonderful things that she's learning. How many parents can say their 6 year old is teaching them Mandarin?! I am so grateful for FACTS and have the utmost confidence in my daughter's education!

    FACTs has great teachers that care. They make learning fun and interesting to the students. Children blossom and don't get lost in the crowd. Everyone knows eack other and it's like a second family.

    This is a great school my two sons love attending and they love their teachers. The staff is always professional and polite but most of all they care about each and every student attending their learning facility.

    My son actually likes going to school and loves his teachers. Worth its weight in gold. The cirriculum is much more creative and effective than the over burdoned public school he formerly went to. Highly recommended.
