We are competing in Best Summer Camp (Section 8), Best Preschool, Best Public School, Best Teacher, Best Principal, and Best Tutoring Program (Section 10). Thanks!
- Spring Testing: Many grade levels at both Lower and Upper Campuses will be taking MCA standardized testing this spring. Watch your email for the specific tests and testing dates for your child's class, and make every effort to schedule doctor, dentist, and any other planned school absences around those dates. Studies show that students do better when they test with their classmates. And, of course, don't forget plenty of sleep and a healthy breakfast on test day!
