My child transferred here from public school. He used to hate school. This school accepted his different learning style and adapted to him, instead of expecting every child to learn the same. However they do not challenge the kids as much as they should. Your child will have a positive learning experience but might not be ready for the real world. The teachers and staff really care and this school is like a family.

My son has Asperger's and has been going to Morning Star for four years. I have never seen nor heard of any more devoted, caring, loving and understanding teachers and administrators as Morning Star has. I am so happy and relieved to have Morning Star in our lives.

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.
