The staff and administration seem very nice at first...don't trust them. Our child was assaulted there by an aide and the entire episode was covered up. The Arizona location alone has a horrendous record of more than 5 dozen assaults by staff on the kids, according to local media. Oh--and the counselor seems very friendly and caring on the surface, but behind your back she is quizzing your child daily to see if she can dig up dirt on you as a parent. and align your child against you. I give them a zero rating but this form won't let me exit without forcing me to give them a star. Stay away!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
