This school definitely has excellent teachers and staff. They are I would agree extremely motivated and energetic which contributes to that necessary love of learning that many of the children do have. While the teachers are great I dually feel that their science department is nil. The emphasis as stated is on religion and necessary aspects of programs like science have been truly neglected. Also the arts and foreign language departments are non-existant. Overall, again GREAT teachers and for many that makes up for the lack of some of the programs that I may feel are much needed.

This school is really wonderful. They do not have the conveniences of many technologies, and two draw backs of not having a real music department or foreign language available...but what they are lacking those departments they are compensating by having highly energetic and wonderfully phenomenal teachers. I wasnt to sure simply by looking at the school or at its specific programs, but they have done an amazing job with my daughter. I definitely see the growth in what she has learned, and her accomplishments are in part because of the wonderful staff.

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.
