Very very good English prep for the upper grades. A lot of reading is stressed, BUT Math is average if that. No advanced math is offered, no regents exams. So if you have a child that excels in math this is NOT the school for you. Boys out number the girls by far. Lots of favorites and the rules don't apply equally to everyone. Good Music dept. Too much time wasted on parties and too much candy/junk given. Uniform rules needs to be enforced Boys need haircuts. Teachers updating FACEbook during class time. Religion period is skipped some of the time. Assistant principal is great and relates to kids. Visitors, student teachers, go to Chapel wearing inappropriate clothing like beachwear. Disrespectful for the type of school it is. Parent involvement is great. My children received a decent education while they were there supplemented by extra work at home. Do your research before you enroll. Especially if you have daughters.

This school is GREAT,especially when it comes to culture, but having two of my children come through their kindergarden and first grade reading program, I was certainly disappointed. The try to teach phonograms out of context leaving many kids confused, and this seems to be the main focus leaving traditional phonics and other methods out of the equation. I knew parents who have had to send their kids to hours of Extra help (from very willing and competent kindergarden and first grade teachers) when a balanced program would have solved the problem. Some have even paid for additional tutors. After paying tuition I think that is too much. Once your child knows how to read grades 2-8 are wonderful. They truly do enrich the primary and middle school experience, and the whole child is nurtured and grows. They are responsive to parental input, and they keep up with other educational trends. Overall it is the best the area has to offer. Except kindergarden and first grade in that case you would be better off at your local grade school.

The school is awesome; from the teachers to the administrators to most of the parents and kids. The kids have a nice playground and share some of the fields with Concordia College as well. The gym is nice and the Chapel has a traditional feel to it where the kids perform and go to Chapel once a week. The school has a great competitive reader program and most all of the kids participate to get points and in the end, they love reading, imo. Overall a great school. My previous experience with another school was with a preK Montessori and that was pretty nice.. in Bronxville.

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.
