Tour Dates & Times
Tours are offered on Wednesdays at 9:15 or 10:00, October-March. We usually don't schedule tours after the first week in March unless there are openings available. The tours are about 1/2 hour long. If possible, we ask that you come without your child for the first tour.  Of course we will accommodate you if you need to bring your child. 

Here is a short video to watch before your tour of the school.
