This school is a gem. The only k-2 in the RCSD and they really work to provide a structured, interesting learning experience for the children. The small size allows the teachers to get to know everyone and meet each kid's need. We couldn't have asked for a better kindergarten experience for our child.

My son has attended The Early Childhood School of Rochester since kindergarden. His class has 19 students, and it is one of the larger classes. We take advantage of the tutoring classes offered for reading. We also enjoy the Family Fun Nights that they have periodically. The school is small enough that every staff member knows my child by name. The staff and I work together on making sure my child does the best he is capable of. Cheryl Moss, the principal, has always treated me with the most respect and has never discarded my opinions on my sons education. That is not always true with educators and it is very important to me. I look forward to sending my three year old to this school soon. My six year old loves this school. We are proud to be a part of it.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
