Really good school up until 10th grade biology. Creationism runs rampant. I'd steer clear, if you value a decent education for your kid.

The kids have a good Christian enviroment to learn and play. The teachers are concerned about the quality of education for our future generation.

My children attended this school and received an outstanding education. They were very well equipped for college. They have since graduated from college and become contributing professionals. Thanks Genoa Central for a job well done!!!
