Great supportive environment, but $6000 a year, limited buses, limited lunches, and limited size- my kid had to wait a year for a spot to open! Great school if you are well off, close, and plan well ahead- they cannot serve everyone or anyone.

LOVE this school! We have had our kids in several school due to moving for work, and they were mostly private schools, but this has been the best education so far! Montessori preschool especially is excellent and lets our son learn at his own pace, which was slow at first, but now he is really doing well. If you are considering private vs. public, do your student a favor and invest in the best education you possibly can, at least for the first few years. It really does make a difference in how they feel about school later in life.

My daughter loves the preschool here! She has grown a lot socially. It is an inexpensive way to do private school and see a lot of growth.

A fabulously caring school. The children are allowed to follow their passion while guided through a curriculum that helps them to fulfill their potential. The school has been renovated this summer and has many returning faculty (most of whom have Master's Degrees or higher). I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at this school and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone else.

This is a wonderful school that provides a nurturing, yet highly stimulating environment for the children. The classrooms are beautiful and filled with engaging materials that help children learn through the Montessori method. There is violin, piano, voice, guitar, science/cooking club, art club, orchestra, a variety of sports and very strong academics that allow a child to master content at their own pace. If you want an excellent education for your child (from 2 years old up to 15), this school is a gem. The staff are exceptionally well educated (all full time teachers have Master's degrees or higher), are extremely dedicated, and genuinely care about the children. And the children in the school are very happy! Students who have graduated have done very well in the schools they have gone on to. They are usually ahead academically and have a great ethical view of the world.

I go to this school and LOVE IT!! its an amazing school and it really focuses on the induvidual student, which is nice. Everyone here is also very nice, the teachers help SOO much and the students help eachother too. it isnt like most schools with only hours and sitting at boring desks all day. we're aloud to get up and walk around, we have maybe, 1-3 classes (shortish) a day and get homework for the next week. but, it still is very challenging. everyone here seems more like a family to me, then just a peer. this school is THE BEST!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
