This is an excellent school. Teachers are totally involved and curriculum is above average. I've had two children here - one for 11 years (three in pre-school) and one for 6 years. One example: they do not like children to use markers because markers do not give one the same feel, texture, and variability as crayons, pencils, and water colors. This demonstrates the depth of thought devoted to your child's education.

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.
