This is an excellent school with a very qualified faculty. My children have attended for two years and we all love it! It has a great sense of community and has a buddy system between older and younger children that fosters togetherness like no other school we know of. The atmosphere is very warm and caring. In addition, they have an anti-bullying program. Academics are high and the work is challenging for the kids, but not overbearing. They also have an great after school CARES program.

My daughter goes to STA since K and is now in 5th grade. Small school with a great teaching staff. small but mighty. smart boards in all the rooms. great attention given to each student due to the ratio of students to teacher.

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.
