Posted December 28, 2013

This school has been just a fit for my creative and free-spirited child. Several of the excellent and dedicated teachers retired from CCSD, and I have heard accolades from many of their former students. Classes are capped at 15 children, and most are 10 children or less, so the teachers can (and generally do) take an interest in each child's challenges and interests. I also love that the kids get art, music, scientific explorations class, technology class, and library every week, and PE 3x a week. I have found everyone to be quite responsive to concerns that I have voiced, and the general atmosphere is very family-like with emphasis on developing maturity and responsibility in the students.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
