My twin daughters graduated from this academy and they are still well mannered and exceptionally smart. My girls are in going to the 7th grade now and they are still making straight A's. My toddler now attends and she comes home teaching me Spanish daily. I love the environment and this academy is believed to be in a close circle with the law enforcement for quick response if ever needed. There is a surveillance system at a 360 degree angle of the building. Hot breakfast and lunch with the delicious snacks to top it off. Not to mention the summer camp activities and field trips the children get to go on. Plenty of polite, professional and eager to love and teach staff. I won't look for another academy for my children to attend; being the world is becoming more violent. I know my children are in a safe, nurturing and loving environment with the right touch of discipline (redirection); something I also love. Don't have to worry about anyone putting their hands on my children, they don't believe in that; something I adore. I thank God for this academy and everything they stand for! Me and my children are satisfied...Are you?
