In my short time here, I made great friends and even greater memories that I will forever remember. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to come to Mizzentopand become part of the family. Part of that family now moves on to new roads, to new possibilities, and to new freedoms.

Every little moment and experience I have had at Mizzentop may have seemed small to me at the time but when I look back now, I realize that they were bigger.

Mizzentop is the place where young minds grow & flourish, a place that centers a community. My children have had the most incredible school experience, this is the greatest gift we could give them.
