K-5 this is an excellent school with great teachers, solid education. 6-8 grades are sorely lacking, the quality clearly declines in some subjects. Principal lacks initiative to strengthen the middle school.

Great learning environment for kids. Community service is part of the expectation of the older students and public speaking is incorporated into the curriculum early on. Cursive is still taught here and competitive sports are offered for grades 5-8. I feel my kids are being well prepared for high school and college.

ALl teachers are very creative in their teaching and learning methods. The downside is the principal, he has no authority over the kids my child got picked on evry day and nothing ever got done about it. Otherwise a very good school.

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.
