Tributes

Often we receive testimonials. They speak to the advances our young scholars achieve in social interaction, personal behaviour, speech, and academic learning. As parents tell us, Mindstretch children literally beg to come to school. 

Our tributes and stories give a fuller picture of what we offer.
