    Their programs are very good as far as being age appropriate. They challenge the children to achieve more. They always have musicals and extracurricular activities to encourage the childrena nd their parents participation. Although there are not a lot of parents fully immursed in their childrens schooltime activities there is alot of parental envolovement.
