our children have attended this school for the last two years the teachers are awesome and they care about the children and their family. At this school they teach all the Christian values that should be taught. The state testing is very high due to great teachers.

I attended 1950 to 1959. I graduated there and then university of Cincinnati and Oklahoma state and worked as a scientist at NASA for 43 years. They are good people and I recommend the school. Wesley Darbro

I am very happy with this school. The student teacher ratio is low and provides a more caring atmosphere than larger schools. It's easy to know all your childrens classmates! I personally feel that the lack of competing sports keeps the kids more centered and focused on academics; in comparison, public schools have a lot of cliques due to sports. My older sons teacher graduated from this school; to me that says she has fond memories and is eager to be part of a school that nurtured and educated her. They follow the A Beka curriculum and the reading program is excellent providing a firm foundation in phonics. I can't say enough about how happy I am with the school!

I went to this school and it definitely offers more one-on-one attention. The teachers really care about each student.

I love this school, I have attended for 2 years now! The smaller classes make it easier to learn, and you get to know your classmates really well. The curriculum is awesome, I was homeschooled for 8 years and I really didn't have to transition! Yeah, that's all I have to say. I recommend this school to anyone!

This school is great my daughter is only in pre-K but we already know we are sending her on through. She has already come home with new prayers and papers upon papers of numbers and letters she has learned to write. Her teacher and all the other staff are so friendly they answer all my questions and concerns. My child looks forward to going to school every day.

This is a great school to send our children to. Smaller classrooms lead to more direct instruction. Teachers in this school care greatly about students, not just academically, but spiritually as well. The music program is extensive and sports are available inside the curriculum (even though they don't compete outside of the school). Parents are invited to be involved in the school through conferences, volunteering and the Parent/Faculty Fellowship. I would recommend this school to anyone who does not want their child exposed to the negative aspects of public education and who want a quality education for their children.

This is a great school! My children's teachers have stopped me to ask if everything is okay when my son had an 'off' day, or my daughter was home sick. We excell academically in competition in our area due to caring teachers with smaller classrooms(150 students from daycare through 12th grade). We don't have many extracurricular activities such as sports, but my children are involved in the choir and travel through several states singing at different churches. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a daycare or school for their child, or anyone fed up with public school as I was some 12 or more years ago.

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.
