One of the most important things I forgot to mention are the teachers. They are very responsible and well educated. The teachers actually help the children learn instead of giving them a toy or paper and telling them to go do something. At some point during the day, each child receives one-on-one with a teacher. Some children go to the other classes to get a chance to help the other children. Again, I would not even consider moving my daughter to another school. There is no reason to do so since she is receiving the best education she could possibly receive the age of 4.

Children's Academy is a great school for children to learn. My daughter loves going to school everyday and she learns from all the children that attend the school. Almost every country is represented at this school and it is such a learning environment for the children to learn in. They get to learn what other kids do in other countries and help eachother understand in many ways. I wouldn't even think of pulling my daughter out of this school. She's learning more at Children's Academy that I would never be able to teach her on my own. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to receive the best primary education out there.

This is the best school for the kids. Specially when the kid has been with u untill 2-3 yrs and have not attended any day care. Teachers give their full attention and the children even feel that they are at home. Teachers are very caring. With the homely environment at school they learn to share and do reading and math. I guess people looking at big classroom or a separate building for a school may find it little inconvenient as the school is in a church. But I am sure that the principal is looking into this matter.

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.
