You pay over $650 per month for school fee then you are charged an additional $500 for an incidental fee per semester. When I asked what the incidental fee covers I was told Spanish class, activities, & books(my child was too young for the books). Parents are required to provide their child's breakfast, snacks, and lunch as well as snacks for you child's class at least once per month. Then parent are required to provide supplies and food for all activities ( I thought that was what the incidental fee was for but no). Parents are also required to provide all supplies child need for class as well as additional supplies for the class ( once again I thought that was what the incidental fee was for but yet again no). Parents are required to pay for everything, plus the school fee, plus an outrageous incidental fee for what I don't know what that incidental fee covers), oh yes and let us not forget uniforms and a special bag required by the school. You shell out all that money and the school provides nothing. Tben there is the morning staff who see you coming in behind them with your child and if you are not fast enough close the door in your face, then you have to ring the bell and wait forever until they decide to open the door for you. If you are considering enrolling your child here please think twice.. this is not the rant of an individual just ranting it is the truth. I wish someone had warned me before I placed my child in this school it would have saved me a lot of disappointment. good luck in your search ... but this school is not the answer

My son went here for a short time.They offer computer,singing,swimming,and regular things such as reading and writing the Montessori way.Was disappointed when my father in law walked right thru the back gate and into the building and he wasn't stopped or questioned! (he was checking the school out)as they brag about safety.The fees are sky high,when i questioned them about the paper fee,as they are using recycled paper(backside of sheets and scraps)they took it off my bill.

PROS: Kids Do Learn Quickly
CONS: expensive
