This is a great school. It's been around since 1969. Most of the teachers have worked there for fifteen years or more. School serves meals according to the requirements of the federal food program, so they don't feed kids sandwiches and cookies all day like some of the other schools. Meals are nutritious and home cooked at the site. On top of that, their rates are very competitive. My son attended this school up until elementary school. By that time, he could read and write, knew numbers, colors. He was more than ready for the 1st grade. I highly recommend this school.

I am a parent of a three year old girl that have been attending Sound of Music from eighteen month until now. As much care and love as my daughter got from Ms. Yolanda is amazing. The food is healthy and delicious. They only serve milk and 100% juice to drink and whole grains vegetables and meat to eat. Why would someone besmirch this school is beyond me. I highly recommend this school to any parent, especially considering a very low tuition that the school charges.

This school is dirty and has no educational curriculum. The food they feed the kids is unhealthy and the same menu every week. Do not enroll your child here, not even if its free.

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.
