This is an incredible school, and we cannot recommend it enough. Our child went here for 4 years, starting in the infant program. We only left the school, regrettably, due to an out of the area move. The infant and toddler programs do a great job of developing children both physically and mentally. Fine motor skills are also developed very well. The primary (3-6) curriculum is equally impressive. Students are introduced to reading, math, science, etc. at an early age. Though early reading is not a goal of the school, our daughter was able to read at age 4. The children directly participate in many different activities, including cooking. Many different cultural events are presented. Perhaps most importantly, the students learn lessons in courtesy and grace. The school goes through 6th grade. While we have no personal experience with the elementary program, the elementary students were often working on advanced projects and always seemed enthralled. The school is expensive, but they do offer financial aid. It s accredited by SACS, recently being reaccredited for another 5 year term. We fully recommend this school.

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.
