Most of the teachers and staff are great! I have a special needs that went to this school from 3-8 years old. We had an issue with a teacher but all of the rest of the staff were great! They also will work with the parents to make sure the child is getting what is best for them.

This is a wonderful school. My son started Kindergarten & within the first few months, I was offered the opportunity to enroll my son in an early reader program (free) to help him, since he was not grasping his letter sounds very well. My son has made great improvement. I am also pleased with their special attention to children with allergies & classroom safety. The staff can't be beat.

Im not too happy with the school, I dont like the way children are graded with either an S,N or a P. I would like the grading system to be like the older children with an a,b,c,d or f, this way we have have a better grasp on where our children stand. I feel that my daughter could have recieved better study skills, somewhere along the line she fell behind and I had to get a tutor for her to catch her up. Im not to happy with center compared to other schools I've observed.

This is an excellent school with great teachers, but classroom size is an issue; with 26 children to one teacher in a classroom.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
