I love this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful and caring. I am so happy we decided to make the switch from 205. Before, my child was swallowed up in 205 and now she is truly able to shine. Thank you so much St. Paul

I have 2 children at this exceptional school and have 2 others just waiting to get old enough for us to place there. I never knew a school could provide such good teacher to student ratios per grade (13 in 7th and 10 in 5th). They offer advanced math in upper grades and outstanding science instruction. Outside of regular class options are their incredible band program including lessons for each instrument in groups of 2 or 3, art, vocal music, Latin, and a full course of sports. All this is done in a truly Christian environment that pervade it all. One additional thing: My kids know that the world is not one race and that all can get along and respect each other in this school that is near half Anglo, half African American. You don't find that well done in many places.

This school is a very structured and christian based school. My children were taught very strong christian values and morals. The curriculum is very challenging and impressive. The teacher to student ratio is perfect, the students get lots of one on one attention and help.

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.

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.
