Wimbish Adventist is a small, Christlike setting with wonderful teachers. Students are very disciplined and exceptionally helpful/considerate toward each other. Although students bring their own lunch to school, they are encouraged to eat HEALTHY. My daughter loves her school and has develop more independence as a result. This school has zero tolerance for bad behavior.

This is great school with small student teacher ratio. The staff cares deeply for each and every student. Standardized test scores are high. Christ is lifted up in all activities.

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.
