Calvin's complete staff (from the administrator, to the teachers, to the bus drivers and custodians) care for and support their students. Their transformative understanding of each child being made in the image of God insures that students of all types (ranging from the academically gifted to the academically challenged) are stimulated and educated.

Absolutely great school. Academics at Calvin are unbelievable compared to Edina Public Schools (which are some of the best in the state). Also, the teachers are very caring and involved with the kids. They have structured programs for kids who are ahead of the curve or are a little bit behind so that all kids are getting the instruction they need. This is definitely not one-size-fits all. The end result is that they kids learn well and can perform well on standardized tests.

Very high test scores and very good quality academic programs including summer school camps. All children take Art, computer, PhysEd, and music. Older grades also do band and foreign language. Parent involvement is close to 100% and many faculty members are current parents or former parents. There are many different opportunities for parents to get involved including working parents too. We have been very happy with our child's education there so far. Not the best school for special education children but, they do have some services and you can use the services through Edina Public Schools. I would not recommend the school for ESL students.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
