The curriculum is academically enhanced and the classrooms are fully equipped with Montessori materials and state of the art technology.

Our Co-Directors

Our Co-Directors and  Executive Administrators help to oversee all 5 schools. They have spent their lives dedicated to helping children develop into academically successful, confident and caring individuals.
