    We moved here from upstate NY almost 2 years ago. Our oldest attended their second grade and is halfway through third grade and has adjusted better than we could have hoped. All of the teachers work together to help each child succeed. Their art music and gym departments work in tandem to create a music program to showcase the students hard work during the year. The art department works with artsonia.com and posts the students' artwork online so they can share their hardwork with the world. As far as the 'traditional' academics is concerned my son can read and do more math than his cousin in NY. They are in the same grade and were at the same reading/math level before we moved. Next year our youngest will start and we are so excited to see how well she will do! Thank you Kelly Teachers keep up the great work!
