This school has been closed for several years and it is an immense blessing that this school was closed. To be frank, going to school here was a horrible experience full of subpar teachers and intolerable classmates.

My daughter has attended SWOY since K. She is now in 2nd. I am pleased with her academic growth as well as her social evolvement as she was extremely shy in years past. Overall I am pleased with her progress.

My children are in K & 2nd, and have been students since PK. My overall experience has been great. The principal is a blessing. My kids' teachers have been wonderful. The office staff is very helpful & supportive; however, the building could use some much needed renovations.

The current overall condition of the school's chattels, furniture, and physical structure is in need for improvement. The teachers work very hard to ensure student success. My son and daughter had an English teacher who worked relentlessly with them at all hours to improve their knowledge of grammar and composition. Many of the students were published either in print or on the Internet.

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.
