This is my second teen attending this school, my daughter choose it because it was smaller, she felt the teachers gave her more time and didn't rush her. The athletics offered gave her a chance to actually make the team and start to excel. She has found a place of acceptance here and it's nice for me to actually get face time with a teacher without making an appointment.

My daughter has attended this school for two years. It has a good college prep curriculum and the students are taught strong Christian values.

Good teachers & principal. School enrollment has steadily been increasing. I am happy my son will be the first graduating class this year. Many more will follow. I just can't say enough about the school, go visit & see how nice it is.

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.
