I am a mother of a 5 year old who came in at the pre-school age, and I must say it was the best decision I've ever made in reference to my daughter's schooling. She came with a little delayed issues but since she been at this school my child has made a 360 degree turn around. She speaks spanish, know all her numbers, colors, shapes etc. What i like the most is how she not only writes out her name but she spells and write out my name as well.I like how the teachers work with the parents to help your child exceed in every area of learning. And when I was a little late with my tuiton they worked with me NEVER hasseling me about the late payments. I like that they are Christian based and very good with discipline. They are very structured with their teaching and care about ALL the kids. The best part about this school is that they accept CCIS. I wish this school went all the way up to high school, but since it only goes to the 5th my daughter will be here until the 5th grade

Everything about this school is a joke from the curriculum, which consist of constant coloring, to the staff including teachers and the director. Their main concern is money. If you love your child this is not the place to send him/her!

This school is the best kept secret. I am the parent of a child that started out at the daycare and began reading fluently before she finished kindergarten. She went on to excell in reading comprehension. Her understanding of words and how to place them placed her in a 2nd grade reading level while in 1st grade. She joined the 100 book challenge yearly and read over 900 books. I am a proud parent and I would recommend any parent that wants to give their child an excellent foundation. Higher Learning Educational Center "aka" Harold O' Davis Christian School, is the place to start.

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.
