I wrote this to balance out the reviews. This is a Christian private school, owned and operated by the principal, Dr. Lindsted. Remember, private schools, private rules. He owns the place and does what he thinks is best for the students and their education. The academics are very challenging, and the school is constantly growing and becoming more up-to-date. There are uniform requirements, and the tuition is expensive. I went to school here, and I am grateful my parents were able to send me. They have an extremely competitive basketball league made up of mostly foreign exchange students, that play local colleges. A close knit community of students and caring teachers. Public schools don't even come close.

This is a truly excellent school. Both academic and behavioral expectations are very high from Pre-K through Senior year, and opportunities for college credit are also available. The teachers genuinely love and care for the students and will work with students who struggle academically. A variety of extra-curricular activities are available, including both the arts and sports (if you're a basketball fan, you've got to check out the stellar teams). The school also recently updated the technology available to teachers and students. Chapel is held every Friday, all grades study the Bible, and it isn't unheard of for teachers to start class with prayer or a devotion. Furthermore, family involvement is required, and all help in some way. If you want your child to be in a loving, Christian environment where behavioral and academic achievement expectations are high, this is the place for you.

If you enjoy watching Calvinball rules in real life action; if you don't mind being manipulated and coerced; if you love long waits and incompetent staff - then look no further! You've found your place! Most parents highly recommend this school as a means of teaching their children that life isn't fair, that not everyone will treat you as they should, and that not all "christians" are actually going to behave as they should. Mediocre staff, bumbling administration - but to their credit, genuinely nice students - are what you will find here. I do not recommend it.

I don't have a good experience about teacher and vice principal in this school and I don't recommend to my friend even though they are christian.

The academics is, frankly, HORRIBLE! My child has learned his 3s tables in a MONTH and he is in third grade. Whatever you do please try NOT to attend to this school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
