* Share your opinion

Many of our kids have started the new school year this week (some of you still have until next week!). My kids have come home telling me which kids have left and which kids are new. It got me thinking about our school reviews. If you have switched schools, we would love to hear your opinion on your experience, the good, the bad and the in between. Writing reviews (even really short ones) really helps out parents who are thinking of switching or are new to the area and are trying to figure out which school best fits their children and needs.

Reviews are very important and vital to our site, so please, if you have an opinion, our readers would love to hear it. Thank you for your support! Click here to write your review...

Don´t forget the power of the BUZZ! Please tell your friends and family about our newsletter or to follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Thank you... and see you next Friday.
