What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
This is a very large school on a large campus. Not very intimate. Although the school claims its goal is to teach a whole person curriculum, there's no religion. This includes Christian, Muslim or Jewish holiday observances. There is a holiday party in December, however, that tries to celebrate each country's traditional celebrations during that month.
Large turn-over of school heads. A new curriculum is set to be implemented. However, at the moment, the Early Childhood Director (Pre-K - 2) is leaving and there is an interim head for the Elementary level.
