This school is way better than the reports will tell you. Daniel Prima and his staff do a phenomenal job. Having put too kids through this school, we were extremely happy with all aspects.

Clara B. Worth is fantastic! and has impressed me with being so technologically advanced which is critical in today's society. The school staff feels like family and my child comes home absolutely happy every day. I am confident my daughter will receive the very best education while she is a student here.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
