My grandson attends this school. This is his second year, I am very delighted with the balance this scool provides. Prior to him attending this school he was at another preschool that was a waste of our time and money. I am so thrilled that we moved him. Everyday we review his class work, he is in k-5 but reading like he's a first grader. His math skills and comprehension are phenomenal. I wish we had him there from the start. I really appreciate the attention not to mention the love given to these children. Keep up the good work Sierra Norwood. We love you.

Sierra Norwood Calvary is a great school. The academics are on point. The teachers are very caring and push for the best in each student. The school allows the kids to explore different things and cultures through academics, plays, field trips, programs, music, dance, sports day. My child started reading from 3 years old and was writing their name before that. I appreciate and love the fact my child will come home quoting memory verses or asking about stories in the Bible! Or singing song we use to sing as kids ourselves. Great School!!

My 4 yr old son has been attending this school. The teachers are wonderful and the staff is so helpful. They not only focus on education but spiritual growth as well.

Sierra Norwood is an excellent school. The teachers love the kids and give 200% everyday. My son k-4 is reading and doing extremely well. My niece 2nd grade makes the honor roll every nine weeks. Also, her SAT scores from first grade were outstanding. Sierra Norwood is an excellent school.

I Personlly recommend parents to enroll their child/children in this christian based institution. Children not only develop academic skills but they are in a christian environment. This schools academic standards are excellent.

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.
