All of my children have attended this school over the last ten years. All of my childern have excelled enough that I felt compelled to write this review. My children were each placed on the honor roll in middle school. My childrens teachers were always open to my opinion and thats important to me ! my youngest child was born with a disability and never once did they treat him with anything but concern. That makes a mother feel at ease Thank You ! Thank You! I will always be great ful and continue to volunteer for years to come.

My son has went to this school since he was about 4 years old. I can say that as a parent I feel very bad due to the fact that my child is in the 5th grade and I am thinking about putting my child back a grade because he is not reading on a 5th grade level. As a parent and a loving mother I should have removed my child from this school. If I had another child this would be the last place on earth where I would send my child or any other child. This is my son's last year there and I would never take him back there even if they offered me money to come back. Sincerly yours, A very loving and concerned parent!

This is an excellent school. I have never seen such growth in my son. The teachers are caring and excellent. I have never seen the place 'sad' or 'messy'. They dont make the children eat outside in the cold, only on nice sunny days. There is an indoor area where they eat when its cold weather. I am proud to have my son there, learning so many things, quickly and he never experienced that at the other schools he was at. My mother is a teacher, and I know in my heart this is an excellent school. I only have to listen to my son's growth every day, learning new things to know.

i love the school because my daughter when my daughter attended she was really learning because when we moved out of state and went to another school they moved her to the 1st grade and she was in the kindergarden, so that alone lets you know that the school is a great school.

I am a student that attended this school. I went there from 1998-2000 and the time I been there I learned alot from each teacher that work there at the time. Education came before anything else, I was happy to go there. Everybody was welcome if they visit, went, or worked there. The friends I went to school there are still my friends till this day and I am in the 11th grade now so I think Cleophas Oliver was a great school.

This is a very sad place. The toddler room smells like urine all the time. There is no place for the children to eat when it is cold, they have to sit outside and freeze. Some of the teachers have less than 12 units required to work in a school, one teacher who I know personally was working under someone else's units and the school never checked or turned their heads. I recently saw one of the so-called 'teachers' working at chucky cheese as a cashier. They have more children there than what the law requires, and they constantly move children around to circumvent the law. I am sad that I subjected my son to this environment as well as ashamed. There are more decent and loving environments to place you child.

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.
