As a Parent, You Have an Important

We know that the health and well-being of your child is your top priority. In order to make sure your child is happy and successful in their day-to-day life we encourage families to recognize when their child might be asking for help. Watch as our Head of School discusses some of the signs that your child needs an alternative way of learning.
