This is the first school our son ever attended...Let's just say I was worried about him going because I thought it would be too much on him. Today is 10 days before he is to graduate and he is now speaking Spanish, reading, writing his name, numbers, words etc., he is able to count to 100, add, subtract and count by 5's,10's and so on. This was the best thing that could have happened to us. My child wears glasses, has allergies and is of a controversial religion, but has been treated fairly all year long. His birthdate kept him from starting elementary school at age 5 but Mt Hermon Preschool Center gave him the head start he needs to be successful in Kindergarten this coming year. I can't thank Dr. Smith, Mrs. Gerron and Ms. Courtney enough. Not only would I recommend your child attend but I will be sending our 4 year old there next year.

When I was told that my kid had to go there (I arrived to the area in July when the preschool center he had to attend was already full) I couldn't be more deceived: the area was not nice at all... Now that we are in the 3rd quarter, I cannot be more happy. The Principal Dr. Smith is the best principal ever, she is actively involved in every aspect of the center: every morning she says good morning - buenos dias to everybody, she personally works with the kids teaching them how to read trillion figures (yes, TRILLION) and takes personal care of everything. The teachers are wonderful. My kid now hates weekends because he cannot go to school. The school facilitates parent involvement and is continuously organizing activities for everybody. My kid is only 4 years old and is able to read, add, subtract and even multiply. This is a wonderful school, in fact is the BEST preschool center I have seen.

This is truly an excellent school! The principal and teachers have the best contact with the parents and students. The reading program is the BEST!
