We enrolled are 3 year old in the summer camp program and he is having a ball. You can feel the love when you walk in, which to me is just as important as academics. If they don't enjoy going especially in the early years its a set up for failure. The principle is very hands on knows all the children and sems to be very forward in her approach; assessing and implementing the best in traditional, non tradtional and Montessori methods. We are excited to begin preschool in the fall and to be part of a lovely, Caring community. My only hope for the school is that the foreign language program can be re-instated.

This school has been in operation for over 40 years and offers one to one education if needed. It has so much to offer: all specialized service, a beautiful gym and recreation area, a full service kitchen and a beautiful backyard with playground equipment. It is safe and clean. What a wonderful place for children!

This school is wonderful. They work at the child's pace and don't push them to do anything beyond their ability or capacity. The classrooms are small so the students get lots of individual attention. There is a lot of love and respect for each child and they are supported and uplifted for who they are as people. My son is laerning so much and advancing so well, I am more than pleased he is in the care of such wonderful people as Sr. Maria and her staff.

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.
