This is a small school however the teachers are very dedicated individuals who care about the kids progress. Their Christian background has being a great influence in my child.

Mt. Aetna is a warm and wonderful place for my children. They all love their teachers and are doing extremely well there as they did last year also. The lower grade recesses have been somewhat lengthy in the past but that has been changed. Jesus is modeled for them daily through the wonderful principal (she hugs every child at the door every single day!) and teachers. The environment is so nurturing they can't help but excel and they love to go to school each day.

My son has attended the past two years. We love the lower grade teachers and feel that he has received a Christ Centered education that is far above what we were hoping for. His reading and math skills are higher than grade testing for his peers at the public school. I feel taht he is very well prepared for 1st grade and plan to keep him in the school. We are also starting his sister this year.

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.
