i went to school here when i was younger. I went from kindergarten to grade six. I felt like it was a great school from kindergarten to grade five but when the middle school came around it seemed too stressful. The teachers some times didn't know how to teach and gave a lot of homework and i worked from 2 to 8 and couldn't finish it. I just think that some people can't handle too much work at such a young age. Great school but wasn't for me. I would recommend it for the people who need a challenge.

A mixed bag of teachers...some fantastic and some dreadful! Administration is the real problem at this school...the principal is not held accountable and does not act on poor teachers or trouble students - especially if the trouble students are children of the resident mothers who are at the school almost 24/7. Seriously lacking in sports, language, the arts, technology and music programs. Very poor communication.

This school is very dedicated to the children and its curriculum. School is organized and helps children advance to the next year. My child is more advanced then other school in the area.

The school is well organized during am drop off and pm pick-up. There is a teacher who has no patience with young students. Music dept is lacking. Some parents participate in school activities, but not a large amount. Not much for the kids to do at recess.

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.
