Every day is a new adventure. My son looks forward to going to school. Good manners, self-esteem and good citizenship is the foundation of a great education at Holy Cross. Kids are allowed to learn at their own pace and their is a very individualized program for learning with actual one on one time with a teacher. There is a wealth of materials in the classroom and the small class sizes give a very intimate learning experience. There is always something to look forward to at Holy Cross, Pajama Day, the indoor skating rink, field trips, group lunch experiences, sledding. the sensory tables, art stations and books are always changing with the season and subject. Since starting at Holy Cross my son pushes in his chair at home and he says please and thank you, he asks what words mean in books and he picks up books and works on reading them. As a parent I feel as I have team support and I know what I need to work on with my child and get guidance on what might help solve both educational and emotional challenges my child faces. Holidays are celebrated and learned about here. There is both Christmas and Hannakuh celebrations not "winter solstice". Most importantly my son loves school.

There is a lot more than meets the eye at this school. The teachers are very well trained, master teachers with great credentials. The school is definitely not merely a drive by, inside is much more impressive. Good manners is part of the curriculum and the students are both happy, engaged and well behaved. There are alot of unique aspects to this school that just cannot be described. This is a Catholic based school but a non catholic student would not be initmidated by the atmosphere--especially one who has grown up with any concept of God. They have some very cool approaches to individuallizing curriculum and there is a wealth of materials to engage any young mind. Not quite a montessori, not quite your traditional preschool, rather a nice mix of several learning environments. If you know what you are looking for in a school and have not quite found one that fit your needs you might want to investigate this one further.
