Safety and District Information – Transportation

Our interactive approach to learning and tight knit community is going to make your child want to come to school, and there are multiple transportation options to get them here. We work closely with local school districts to ensure our students have access to free bussing to the school. For those students located closer to the school (or do not have access to school busses), there is an RTA stop conveniently located by the school using Route 18 or 24. RTA also has a tool that can help you plan your child’s route.  Students of driving age can park at our facilities for free.
