Excellent school. The leadership is great and my daughter's teacher, Mrs. Rose, is wonderful. She has her students best interest at heart and she demonstrates excellent leadership skills. The 3rd and 5th grade teachers are great too. And, the office staff is very supporative.

This is a very very structured school. A Zero Tolearance school at that. They are good academically but in terms of extracurricular activities for balance there really isn't anything for the children. The classrooms are very small and tight because the school is apart of a church. So Space is limited. My daughter went there for kindergarten and her teacher Mrs. Vidal was very good, however, that was three years ago and I don't know how the other teachers are. There is tuition, lunch expenses and aftercare. The lunch program isn't that great - not nutritionous at all.

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.

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.
