What MilFams Say:
This school is outstanding. The PreK special education program prepares all students for a successful elementary school experience. Children are given advanced or extension work, like GATE, to deepen education and avoid boredom. With a child in the special education program, parents felt heard at their IEP/504 meetings and that staff was knowledgeable about their child’s case. Services being provided were explained to parents. My family felt welcomed at this school, with faculty and staff taking the time to know my family. Children were challenged or supported academically. Social and emotional supports were provided as needed. The school communicate regularly with families.
