Community School is just about perfect. Challenging academics in a wonderfully nurturing environment. A great place for kids!

Expensive but worth the money. Really challenges children and gives them a strong foundation. For what it lacks in trendiness, it makes up for in substance and depth.

We have one CS graduate, two enrolled, and one entering next year. I can't imagine life without Community School. The atmosphere is special. Children and families feel like they are one big family, while being challenged with high academics and individually tailored programs. Every child is given personal care and attention. Community School is an institution in the very best sense of the word. There is a culture here that is difficult to define but wonderful to experience. When our first grader did a musical on the history of Community School I was on cloud nine! Here is a place that understands how children need to take pride in the place they learn and know what it stands for. This element is lacking in nearly every school. Here, however, alumni, parents, faculty, teachers and students all work at making Community the best elementary school in our area.

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 »
