This school is a joke. The equipment is all old and worn. The teachers have one "go to" method of classroom management and seem flummoxed by children who are still learning how to behave in the classroom. The administration will happily take your money and tell you anything you want to hear to get those enrollment numbers/$ and then go back on their word. This is all first hand experience!

My husband and I are so lucky we found this amazing little school. Our two children are years ahead of their peers at other schools. The staff is great, and really cares for their students. We cannot say enough good things about this school.

My son went to this school, but was taken out. The school is not very clean and the teachers in the day care class do all the work for the kids, so we do not get to see what our kids are really learning at school when they bring there work home at the end of the week. There hot lunch served there is not healthy and nutritional. On there web page, it is stated they are nurturing, but that is not true from my experience. Also, potty training was not enforced with my son, even though they said they would train him, and diapers were not changed, most of the time, so he would come home with a diaper rash!!!!!

I think this school is really great! My daughter has learned so much from Pre-K to 1st grade. One of the teachers teaches Piano after school and there are lots of extracurricular activities for the kids to do like dancing, gymnastics, singing, Spanish classes etc. I really recommend this school.

This school really is a hidden gem. We were just lucky to stumble upon it. The teachers and the principal are dedicated and have high expectations of all the children. The only thing that would make this school better in my opinion is a more robust foreign language program.

This school is so dedicated and focus in to the best quality of education for my two kids, my daughter has been there for six yrs, and my son for two. The teachers believe that each child has their own potential and will learn at their own pace. Small groups make better learning. There could not be a better school for my kids.

This school has been a fantastic experience for my daughter. She has been there for 3 years, and she is in K, but doing reading and math at a 2nd grade level. The teachers are incredibly nuturing, and the price is unbeatable in this area. The facilities are small, but the kids are learning like crazy. This has been a perfect school for my daughter. I only wish they went through 8th grade, then we would keep her here for the duration. I cannot stress enough how great of a school this is.

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.
