My husband and I transfered my daugther to Potter's House after 5 years of attending another local private school, with some reluctance. My daughter has learned so much in her first year! Not only does Potter's House have a strong acedmic program, their principles of Christ Centered Education is evident throughout their curriculm. It is a very warm and inviting environment, full of rich diversity in students and faculity. Most importantly, the love of God is displayed daily in the lives of the students and staff. I am truly blessed to be a part of the wonderful work that God is accomplishing at Potter's House.

This school truly teaches students to love one another. Though very racially mixed, the students care for and respect each other without regard to race. Parent involvement is very high. The school is a beacon in an economically depressed neighborhood. The academics have allowed many of Potter's House students to attend the nations finest colleges and universities.

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.
