I cannot say enough good things about this school.
Since attending our first open house, we had the feeling that this would be the right place not just for our precious daughter but for our whole family. I am very happy to say that we were right. I always will be grateful to this community for caring so much about my daughter and every single child, meeting all of their needs. Morningside really helps each child bloom.
