You don't get what you are paying for. Students rarely get instruction in music. According to my child, the music teacher is always late. They haven't had Spanish since November 2012. Concern I have is that parents are not notified. We should have been notified that our children would no longer be receiving Spanish instruction. I ask my child questions everyday and for this reason only am I able to I find out information. This haven't been an issue since January, but my child's teacher was absent quite often (two to three days per week). When she was absent, the children did not receive instruction on those days because no sub work was left. They state information and in the Student Handbook, they make promises as to what they will provide for our children, but they do not provide what they say they are going to provide. What they don't understand is that the handbook and enrollment form is a binding contract between parents and the school. The contract protects the school, as well as the parents. You pay money for them to provide services, but they are not providing the services. There is definitely a breach.

This is the best school in the county! My son has been at this school for 4 months (coming from a private school) and this was the best descision we have every made. The teachers are so wonderful and caring! The classes are small, so the teachers can give the students any special attention they may need! I LOVE THIS SCHOOL! The parents are so nice here also. Really, really good school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
