My son has been attending Los Altos Christian School since he was in the sixth grade. He’s now in the 11th grade in the inaugural class of its High School program. It is a great program at an excellent school. I wish more people knew about the potential opportunities that this program can offer their children in the future. It provides an excellent quality education in a small private school setting. Teachers are compassionate and caring and give extra help when needed. It provides accommodations for students with learning differences. I highly recommend it!
