This is an excellent school with small classes, caring and well trained teachers, and a strong emphasis on math, reading and science. In addition to the basics, children are strongly encouraged and supported in the development of their musical, artistic talents. Excellent creative arts program for all age groups. I was amazed at the oratory skills several of the young men displayed at a school event I attended. Two of them, who identify themselves as future pastors, brought the house down with their oration of Dr. Martin Luther King s I Have a Dream speech. There is something very good happening at that school and everyone in Brooklyn should know about it. The tuition is also very affordable.

Worst Private school ever!!! My daughter attended for the first time. This school is one big dis-organized mess. I do not see how it stays open. Do not put your children in this school. * The Principal is not a great leader, often late and unorganized *The teachers are always late *The office opens late. *Children roam the halls unattended *When teachers are absent kids are left to just play *They are under staffed *Lunch program did not start until almost 3 months into the school year. *For the entire year only one report card for the first quarter. *Programs are always un-organized. *On last day of school secretary was absent. *On the last day of school report cards were not ready. *Parents show up upset to meet with staff / principal that does not return phone calls and emails There is a summer camp * The summer camp is play camp. The children are just left to play do not waste your money. There is no AC in the class rooms. Only the Principal's office and secretary. No report cards were given at the end of year. This School is very poorly run and operated.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
