This school is truly like a family. Each grade has one class so even with K - 8th it is a small school. The kids are always with the same friends and you don't have to wait until the end of summer to know who the teacher will be. The staff cares about the students and the families.
My daughter has attended early childhood center (excellent!!!) and is currently in 3rd grade. This is an excellent school. You can see respect in all aspects- among students, staff, and leadership. There are many opportunities and they challenge each student to be their best, including speaking (broadcasted daily morning announcements, etc..) and leadership opportunities. You can see a very caring attitude towards others and a family type atmosphere there. The students are expected to exhibit morals, be respectful to others, and be responsible for themselves. They have a strong academic program throughout that will prepare them for the rigor expected in high school and beyond. Issues (family, academic, behavioral, etc.) and discipline, when needed, is handled promptly and properly, with emphasis on learning how to handle circumstances to give them tools to deal with situations in the future. I particularly love the Christian education that they receive, which is also very important to us, and the staff "walks the walk" not just "talks the talk". Besides the Christ centered atmosphere, the caliber of this school is outstanding. Don't take my word for it, see for yourself.
My daughter attends school here and is in the 2nd grade. We are also church members. What really excites me about this school is how it really does feel like you are with extended family members when you are there. I know she is in good hands. They are firm but fair. Instilling moral values on my child is of upmost importance to me and I see the outcome in how she reacts to certain situations in public and how she has good judgement and it makes me proud. I have also had the opportunity to talk with parents who have sent their children here for a few years and then placed them in public school. The parents noticed a change in behavior and that they did not learn as much in a years time at public school. I highly recommend it. K. McLean
