I absolutely LOVE this school! My son has been attending this school for about 2 years and he is really excelling socially, emotionally and academically. I love that the class sizes are small and intimate which fosters a better work environment for the children. I also love that many of the older students are really well rounded, respectful and bright and they act as role models for the younger children. The school has been around for about 30 which is a HUGE plus.

This school has a good foundation and the educational level is advanced maybe by 2 years. I don't know if that's good or not. Some of the teachers yell at the students and put a lot of pressure on them especially the younger kids. I will send my child here up to kindergarden. The kindergarden teacher needs to have more patients with her students

I think the teachers of the school are excellent, but if you have a legal family dispute the administrative staff will take sides. I would never send my children to this school.

This school is very nice and the director/principal will go out of her way to make sure her school and students are well trained, including staff. The teachers are caring and loving. So far this school has not yet to disappoint me.

I have two children currently in this scool and in all honesty this has been the worst school year in the lives of my children and myself. The principal is all about money. You to pay for EVRYTHING in this school. If your children are putting on a production you have to pay to get in. You pay tuition, buy the books, pay for recitals and the list goes on. The nicest things about the school are the teachers but NOT all of them. You have the chosen few that actually care. I would like to make mention of Ms. Dunn, Ms. Auguste, Ms. Grant and Ms. Bush to name a few that have made a lasting impression on my children. The owner and director of this school needs to really sit back and look at the way she runs her school.

This is one of the worst school i've seen. The teachers are great but some are not certified. I was told by three different parents that you get what you pay for if it look like a dump then it is a dump. Everyday when i send my child to school i look at the school lunch area and see pipes sticking out the wall and a back door were anyone can come in. Just last year i complained about water leaking from my childs classroom the teacher said it was reported to the directer by other parents three days ago and nothing was done about the situation, only after parents rallied to the directers office then only then the matter got fixed. Even though, my child still attend this school i cannot stop expressing my disappointment about the school mistakes when managing school tuition fees done by previous receptionist.

When you walk into the front doors, you are already greeted with a warm and caring staff. The school has a well lit, bright and cheery, warm and inviting, child friendly look. The standards and quality of education, and social developmental skills of children are of its highest priority stemming from the school's philosophy 'It is easier to build a child than to repair an adult'

They teach students one grade above the age level. Teachers are well knowledgeable and take an interest in the kids learning. They offer computer but from an outside contractor for an additional fee. I wish they made it part of the curriculum.

'I was a litte apprehensive about enrolling my 2 and 3 year olds into school. However,after the first semester I was impressed with the materials my children were been taught. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to ensure that each child is performing at his/her best. Little Flower has assisted me in my attempt to develop disciplined and well rounded children. I strongly recommend Little Flower to the parents who are seeking quality elementary education for their child in a safe environment.'

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.
