My first child began preschool at Miss Selmas. He had not been introduced to other children much, and needed help with independence from home and mom. Miss Selma's school was the right place to be. The incredible teachers and atmosphere allowed him to gain the growth he needed to begin elementary school. Even in preschool, he gained academic growth and still continues to be strong academically. When we had to relocate due to my husbands job, the worst part about leaving Little Rock was knowing that my children would not have the privelege of continuing at Miss Selma's school. Since that time, my 2 boys have attended 3 different elementary schools. I have never seen a better elementary school than Miss Selma's, and if we lived in Little Rock today, my children would attend this school.

Although well above average academically, my child had some social skills issues, and we were not kept informed of problems. This school was definitely not a nuturing fit for a child who was not 'average,' and we were not offered a chance to work on problems. I would not recommend this school.

I have 3 children enrolled at Miss Selma's. My son is 11 and in the 5th grade and has attended for 9 years. My daughters' are 7 and 5 and have also attended since they were 2 y.o. It is a wonderful school with a strong family atmosphere and a solid educational program. I highly recommend the school.

If you are looking for a nurturing environment for your child, you have come to the right place. Four of my children have attended Miss Selma's, and we have been delighted.

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.
