Bad math programa...not worth the money. Our child is Having problems in math after moving to public school. They Are more interested in money.

My child attended 1st - 3rd grade. Now has moved to public school and is very behind in math. But report cards were Straight A.I had questioned the math cirriculum every year, one of the reasons for the move.Classes are small and ok, in my opinion, for K-2. After that, very too small for proper socialization. Lost every teacher each year..i think you can do better. Art was horrible..pre-K art work and shared teacher with computer. Not enough computers for all students. Look to see what you are paying for

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
