What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
I am very happy with the school. My son has learned an amazing amount of Russian in just a few months (impressed a native Russian speaker he talked to while stateside this summer). All the staff is very welcoming. Class sizes are small. A teacher recently received a grant to purchase iPad Mini's for student use in class for research/educational purposes.
