twinmom2004: The teachers are very attentive to the kids, and I absolutely Love the engrade application they use to keep parents informed and involved in the kids education. You can see assignments, as well as emailing their teachers.
It's a very well rounded education, not just teaching to the FCAT. I really do respect that. Which is why I drive as far as I do to take them there.
