Wonderful school full of caring teachers and staff. Always someone around with a smile and a warm greeting. Great school! Every teacher is so dedicated to their job, they go out of their way to help every child. The band/choir teacher is wonderful! Very dedicated.

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.
