i like the fact that it;s a small school. I like the teachers so far. I DON;T SEE WHY THE KIDS DON;T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO EAT THEIR LUNCH NEED MORE TIME TO BE ABLE TO FINISH SO THEY CAN GET THE BRAIN WORKING TO FINISH THE REST OF THE DAYS SCHOOL WORK. WHAT;S THE RUSH. THAT;S A COMPLAINT WITH A LOT OF CHILDREN NOT JUST MINE.

I absolutely love this school! We have been so happy here. The staff is outstanding. It is a small school and all the kids know each other. The classes are small. The principal is awesome and knows every student in the school. Betsy is a gem!!!

It is a good. Yet at times it is too rigid. I was not impressed in that it was not willing to work with parents and strict and rigid at times. My child felt the same.

Excellent small school with outstanding staff. Every teacher knows every child personally. Children's needs are addressed individually whether special needs or gifted. Many gifted programs available, including challenge, Latin and 'pull-outs' for reading, math and spelling.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
