The school has given my daughter a better future to look forward to. The academics will surely get your child in college.

Excellent School. I really like the way they focus on each child individually. Also, the founder,Mrs James and her daughter have an excellent reading and private tutoring program that fit my budget. Martha

James Academics is a pretty good school compared to most private institutions. The students work at their own pace by setting goals for themselves. If the child is behind the school will help them catch up in minimal time. The schools only down fall is that it does not offer any extra curricular activities. The school is strickly academic and helps to develop the children morally. Most children that begin in kindergarten graduate one to two years early. They also promote graduating students with a high school diploma as well as their AA degree. The program provides a home cooked meal daily that is included in the tuition and extended day care is offered for a modest fee. Rules and regulations are strictly enforced with zero tolerance. Fundraisers are required but they require minimum effort. Volunteer work is required of all parents of students enrolled. Scholarships are available.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
