This school has negatively impacted my college experience both on an academic and social level. The only way your kid can be accepted as student there is if they sign a waiver/contract to allow the teachers to send them to time out. The parents make their kids do this! The curriculum doesn t teach age appropriate topics very well, the teachers often don't know what they're doing. I ask you this, if you asked an18 year old how many words they can find in Rainy Monday they'd feel insulted, or angry and think you take them for a fool! There are three time out rooms all the sizes of shoe closets that aren t high enough, they have a little window and a circular hole for a door handle which can give you splinters. What if a very fat or obese person goes in the room, can they get in and out easily? What about a fat and tall person? I once saw a tall skinny kid and in the room and his neck was bent down because it wasn't a tall enough room! He could get a neck ache/sore neck maybe even a medical issue! What if there was a person on a wheel chair, could they get in a room. What if that person was fat and tall? What if someone had a cold? The rooms don't get sanitized after each use! Gross!

If you want a sitter service for your kid, this is the place. Scimpy academics; too much left to student self-teach. Self-serving administrators with little moral leadership. Certainly does not match the image presented. Districts pay lots of $$ for what??

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
