Due to the highly dedicated and individualized teaching style that our school requires, our class sizes are limited.  Our school caters to all learners, giving opportunities for students to partially enroll, allowing you to choose what your child needs.


Our Teachers

Our teacher observes the student and introduces them to challenging and developmentally appropriate lessons and materials based on observations of each student’s unique interests, abilities, and social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
