My daughter went to this school for 4 years and now she is in the 3rd grade and she is doing excellent. She's always on the honor roll and her reading is off the charts. I'm glad I sent her to this school. They gave her a head start.

What an excellent school! This is my 4 yr old's 2nd year and my 15 month old's first. The teachers are so involved and I see the results in my daughters academic progress and behavior. It has a montessori setup, observation windows in all rooms (so you can pop in and see how your child's doing at any time), and lunch is made fresh every day (not just hot dogs and sandwiches thrown together, but meals like mashed potatoes, meatloaf and green peas, etc). In the infant room, the floor is setup so the children can learn through play, and everyone entering must wear disposable covers over their shoes. The school is also very clean. They have a daily routine, so at any given time you know whats going on. Overall I have been very satisfied with the quality of this school. Calm and orderly, no tv watching, i recommend it!

The school is in a perfect location to service the young parents in the area, i would recommend the school to others, althoug I do beleive that there is a gap in the consistency of the staff and their inertactions with parents, I personally had a experience where I pulled my child from the school because I was not sure if the staff had some sort of personal 'beef' with me being a male father who was in charge of my child's early education. There were question that never got answered, and I felt as if they were trying to work with me and my child.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
