This is the school for you if you are looking for a smaller school with a lot of one-on-one attention given to students, rich curriculum with a lot of emphasis on art, music and outdoor activities. Our little one came out of his shell and to our surprise adapted very quickly to his new surroundings. Student body is very diverse and lovely. Parents are also welcoming and community-oriented.
