Have Questions?
Our Family Services Team would be happy to help

The staff balances academics and fun. The staff assures all students are attended to, social-emotionally and academically. There is clear communication between Leading Edge and home. I appreciate the Class DoJo photos and communication about the week/day’s activities.
