    capeless provides a good mix of academic pursuits with a very good feed back systems. It is definetly a school were you can call an educator at any point and recieve honest and well thought out feedback. my child has attend the school for a couple years and the teaching and adninistrative staff are in my honest opinion the best i have dealt with. the class sizes are conducive all the way through i think the largest class size is 20 which is far better than most schools i have looked into for my children.
