I had two children that attended Aletheia. One child was in daycare and the other in the elementary school. Both children were above academic level when we relocated. Both missed the smaller friendly atmosphere of Aletheia. The staff cares about the kids as well as their academics. We appreciate the nondenominational approach taken in teaching our children Christianity. We liked before and after care along with care on in-service days was available on site. Bus service was also available.

I have 2 children in the school and 1 in the daycare. I have been very pleased with the school. My children have gotten a lot of one-on-one attention. Both of my school children are reading several grades above the grade level. This is a very caring Christian environment in which to send your children. If you are looking for a school 'family' you have found the right place!

My son is in the DK program at Aletheia. He also attended their daycare program last year.He absolutely loves his teachers thus far and gets along very well with the other students. They go on a few field trips each year and ask for chaperones. He has also had a few parties this school year where parents were asked to be involved. He receives a report at the end of each week letting us know about his behavior and what areas he needs to work on. I do not get a lot of information about extra-curricular activities at this point, therefore I do not know how much is offered in that area. On the rare occasion that I have had a problem it was addressed and resolved in a timely manner. The before and after care program is well run and provides the children with a fun after school atmosphere.

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.
