Just for general info, the school does not have a lunch room, the children eat at their desks. Also they let former students and other volunteers lead the students in PE. These students/volunteers are not formally trained in PE and one volunteer led the students for a walk through woods on the school property unsurpervised by and out of site of school staff.

Our son and daughter have gone through the daycare and pre-k associated with this school since they were a year old. THe teachers are very good and the administrators really work to see that the kids 'get' everything as they advance. This is a very good school for kids who need extra or special attention, or who don't do well in large groups. This is a throw-back to the 'Little Red School House' concept with multiple grades in combined classrooms (k-2, 3-5, 6-8) [I think that's right].

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.
