This school has made changes in faculty and it has made the school a terrific place to be. The elementary department is absolutely remarkable! I have two children at this school and they are thriving in every way. My daughter is in the 2nd-3rd grade class and is mastering 4th & 5th grade material. This great teacher uses drama, art, music, and dance with her curriculum. My daughter comes home excited about history and science every single day. I'm so happy. My older daughter is in the 4th-6th grade class and I'm blown away by the teacher. She is unbelieveable! The ability of this teacher prepares them for the future! She incorporates cooking and creative projects that stay with the children for a lifetime! They are far ahead of everyone else when it comes to teaching styles. The extracurricular activities are awesome! They have art, drama, dance, music, spanish,....

Right now Im disappointed in the way this school is being ran. There is a lack of organization and structure in the classrooms. There are many things that can be done to make this school better and nothing has been changed yet. The only thing good about this school right now is the extra curricular activities (dance, music, art, gymnastics) other than those I am not impressed.

Good campus and concept. Concepts are not carried through due to lack of leadership. Hopefully it will improve since owner is fairly new.

School lacks leadership and organization. Daily structure is lacking. Teachers are excellent, aides are not motivated and are lazy. I would be unable to recommend this school based on the last 2 years under CCPAA's management. The intention is good, but misdirected.

my child goes to this school and their programs are wonderful. Their after school teachers with the exception of one have no common sense. Many children will be leaving after the school year.

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.
