This is a very well rounded school. The teachers are caring and happy. The administration is very supportive of parents and teachers alike. The children are bright and respectful. It's a joy to visit this school.

It is bad cause of the principal. I mean the teachers are kind of great. They try and try to make the best, but the principal is a biased person. They also have to get better stuff and try to upgrade themselves in many ways. They also need more student envolvement. The Safety Patrol is a charade.

The school has been a great experience for my children. They wake up wanting to go to school. I have never seen such behavior in any other child. The teachers care very much for their students and it is quite evident that the children love their teachers. Mrs Heppt is a great role model for the school and she commands her position quite well. THe school is the best I have seen in quite some time now.

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.
