What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home

Being from an English speaking country it is great to go into an English speaking school. The kids picked up right where they were in the American system. We have to teach our kids American history because they have an International curriculum. It is great that our children can learn about all the different cultures in the school. The school gives the Stanford Achievement test each year so we can still tell how thwy are doing compared to the American system.

The parents are very active in many of the activities. The PTO has room mothers that help each class. The school asks for and gets many volunteers.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
This is a small school that is growing. The teacher to student ratio is 4 to 1. It is a Christian school that is taching our kids to get along with others. We love the school and would recommend it to anyone. The cost is cheaper than the other schools in town which is an added bonus.
