Hear From Our Families

The teacher to student ratio is excellent and allows for plenty of 1-1 attention. You can tell they really enjoy interacting with the kids and helping them develop their problem-solving skills. Each grade has cohorts of 13-15 students, which lets them develop strong bonds and learn how to work on a team effectively.


In terms of content, they take a really innovative approach with lots of hands-on experiential activities, guest speakers, and on-site industry visits to expose the students to different career avenues ranging from traditional four-year college tracks to technical certificates among others.
