I have two boys attending this school. 1st grader and a pre-k. My oldest has attended this school for 3 years. It is fabulous. He was reading and writing by the end of pre-k. They have lots of hands on activities. The teachers and staff are fabulous and they love to teach. They learn values and respect. We really feel like we are a part of a family that cares about us. My children are excelling spiritually, academically, and physically.

A Classical Christian school, multi-Christian denominational, Great Parent involvement, My child looks forward to the lessons , and loves learning there. Bringing History, Bible and Art together makes it all come to life for a child. Caring atmosphere.

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.
