My daughter and son went through Kindergarten to Eight grade and had a great time. The charm of this school is the small school atmosphere. The kids all know each other by name and interact with each other. They helped my kids grow academically, socially and spiritually. Great principal and teaching staff.

Education seems to be a little advanced based on your average public school - but there is noaccomodation for the extremely bright or advanced child. Poor management.

Education seems to be a little advanced based on your average public school - but there is no accommodation for the extremely bright or advanced child. The number of children per class/teacher is extremely high -not acceptable for a private school.

A very good christian education school... my boys have benifited greatly from attending this school. Small class sizes, friendly teachers, and high test scores in a safe environment was enough to convice me!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
