AWESOME! I absolutely love this school. Since there are smaller class sizes, my child gets more individualized attention. Not to mention, everyone makes you feel like your part of a family. Everyone knows each other, and goes the extra mile to help. The parents are very involved and take great pride their child's education. They foster community involvement and relationships with their annual Christmas bazaar, spring fair, etc. The #1 important aspect of this school is that Christian values are not only taught but practiced. The children are respectful and disciplined. Something that is becoming increasingly difficult to find these days! I would recommend this school to everyone!

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.
