This little school is a hidden gem. I have been working here, as the new Administrator for a year. I have read the past reviews and hope that people searching for a great school look at the dates on the reviews and come in and see for themselves the wonderful things we have to offer the children and families that we serve.
The teaching staff is fantastic. My children blossom under their direction. The Office staff is always willing to help. The administrator is a different . She talks down to people and thinks she knows what is good for you and your child even when she is not capable of making that decision. I would never ever put another child under her leadership
The teachers are decent people, but will be the first to tell you that they are paid little more than minimum wage. The school needs much maintenance and repairs, but the owner will not do them. I have overheard him telling teachers that only one working radiator in a room is enough! Can you imagine? The teachers have told me that they have to buy supplies out of their own pockets because the owner won't buy them. He only wants to take in money, not spend it. It is very sad. The academics in the elementary room are sorely lacking. They have no science equipment and they don't even really do science or history. It is a good day care for ages 6 and below, but not a school by any stretch of the imagination.
My son is a current student in the Pre-Primary room (3-6 years old). The teacher is phenomenal. In a few short months he knows how to count to 100 in Spanish, all of the continents, has started addition, and can read "sight words" up to a first grade level...and he is only 3 1/2!! As educated parents we can take credit for some of this, but the majority of his learning, social skills, and confidence comes from the daily interaction in his class with his peers. I can only speak for the teachers upstairs interacting with ages 3-12 and they are all excellent, caring, nurturing, and genuinely concerned with seeing the whole child develop. As an educator, I am very picky when it comes to academics and I can say that I have been pleasantly surprised at what this small, relatively unknown school has been able to do. The director is brand new and is still going through her own growing pains, but she obviously wants to see the school reach its full potential and is a nice person. The pre-primary through elementary teachers are solid, permanent, and knowledgeable. There is also a relatively active Parents Association that energetically supports the school. You should definitely visit!
