Academically, this school is pretty good. The teachers teach well and are nice. But i can't say the same for the students. In every grade there are cliches and if you don't get into one, then your entire experience is terrible. The school is filled with bullies and unless you are one of them, you'll have a tough time fitting in. I strongly reccommend that you bring your child to a different school. It's not worth it.

This Schools offers students a very good education with a great deal of and special attention from the staff for students having academic difficulties. The great strength of this school is the caring staff. I have seen Susan Helm, the school director go to astounding efforts to get individual students the help and services they need. This is a school community that is a family not just a school. The classroom sizes are small and a sense of community is encouraged. Students show a great deal of acceptance towards each other. It is the rule rather then the exception to see students helping each other. Their arts programs, which includes drama, music and art also provide students with many unique opportunities. After working in many public schools, I have never seen student performances with more spirit and joy. These experiences add greatly to each student's sense of self-worth!

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.
