The staff is great, caring and kind. The academics are not so good. I had to pull my child because I could no longer afford it and send her to public school and she was so behind. Its been over a year now and we are stilll trying to catch up with the public school cirriculum. Reading and writing are what we are really stuggling with catching up.

My son just started going here and Ms Jinny has been so helpful with getting us prepared. Ms Cassie has also been a great help in making his first school experiences great. He is excited to continue going there and doesn't want to come home at the end of the day.

My daughter is currently attending The Academy and is a stellar student thanks to the learning program offered there. The students are taught to learn the words involved in the subject they are learning and it makes a huge difference in the interest a child has in the subject. I found this technique to be most beneficial towards my daughters intelligence level, she actually knows what she is talking about when she explains what she has learned. Her confidence is outstanding and she actually comes home happy everyday from school. It's wonderful how the students get one on one attention from the teachers and how the students are able to help one another excel. It's a wonderful interactive environment.

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.
