My two daughters were tested and placed into the appropriate grades. They will be learning Portuguese for the first time (we just relocated here). I was glad to hear that Portuguese is taught in all grades.

There are a few school events throughout the year, as well as parent-teacher conferences.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Go and visit; it might not be for you if you are against your child learning the Bible. We are Christians, so we like that. There are many other non-christian families though that appreciate the good morals that are encouraged here.
