In regards to the previous comment about the staff at this school being abusive, I can guarantee that this is not true. As a parent who's daughter has been attending this school for the last two years, I have witnessed the complete opposite. This school provides a nurturing environment for children and does an amazing job educating them. I do not recognize any of the names mentioned by the person who commented which leads me to believe that this person did not actually have children at this school.

This school was wonderful!!! For 2 years my daughter has been going to this school at first it was wonderful, the teachers are amazing but there are 2 problems 1st is a teacher of Pre-Kinder (NEW TEACHER) she's not doing what she is supposed to do teaching measurements, time, money, math and so on to her student the other class for Pre-Kinder there are learning all that, I spoke to the Principal she has not done anything about it. The teacher that I'm talking about her english is terrible you don't understand what she is saying to be honest the student 4 and 5 years old (pre-kinder kids) are telling her how to say some words, I don't like the way she talks to the kids but like I said the Principal seem that she doesn't care at all. I will miss 5 most awesome teachers. My daughter is not going back to this school for kinder.

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.
