The school provides a great balance of academic, spiritual and physical activities. Academics are good, but kids don't get over-worked. LOTS of parent involvement (and lots of fundraising too...).

The best elementary school in the Miami/Coral Gables area. High academic standards and students are well prepared when going into middle school. Best of all: 2 teachers per grade!

Great school in all academic and social respects. Great teachers. My daughter has learned much in her three years here. I agree that the constant barrage of solicitations for money are annoying, and the tuition is high. However, if you can afford it, your child will get an excellent education here.

A school that offers an excellent education as well as gives back so much to the community and charity. Teaching the kids so much about life as well as giving back. What an amazing place to have a child to learn, grow and be part of a special family.

They really take good care of my girls. They have excellent teachers and a great program. It's a small school so everybody knows you and your kids. We are so happy to be able to have our 3 daughters there.

I was a teacher at this school and was very impressed, so much so that when I had my own children we waitlisted them at birth! The faculty is very professional and truly love the children. And the academic program is one of the best in the city.

I love this school. They are nurturing and caring. Athletics are good for an elementary school. Parents are very involved. Only problem is the tuition (high) and the constant requests for additional money (which wears thin after a while). the students get a solid foundation in academics.

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.
