My daughter started at 3. She is now 7. AMAZING. Spotless, impecable, kind, loving, challanging. Facility is big and beautiful. Sisters are amazing women. All parents very involved. If you meet the children you would be impressed.There is no school where you can get before care, after care and loving care for the price we pay. Absolutely love it! Awesome experience!! It breaks my heart to think it will have to end some day.

This school actually goes up to 5th grade not 2nd as noted. I have 2 young children here and love it. It is a great school with very caring staff members. The school is immaculate and very organized. I love the involvement the parents have with the activities. The class sizes for the 2yr olds-Kindergarten are large in the Montessori program but in the largest class of 40 there is a teacher/student ratio of 1/10. The children are all busy working and well behaved no matter what time of day you stop in. I am glad I switched them into this school. They are learning a lot.

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.
