It has been amazing thus far! I truly appreciate how well treated my son is, how sweet and caring his teachers have been towards him, and how patient I'm sure they are with him. I'm also thankful they continue to work with him and teach him new things I am unable to due to work. Its truly a blessing to bring your child to a school, and feel safe leaving them there! Thank you!
