I absolutly LOVE this school! My daughter has been going since 2009/10 for preschool. She just finished Kindergarden and I loved every moment. The Administrator is caring and has a beautiful spirit, the teachers are phenomenal, and the parents are invested! If your looking for a nuturing enviorment, small class size and a rewarding experiene, this School is for you and your family! They also have a great after school program where the kids learn chess, Dance & Motion, Computers, etc...

My child has been attending Saints Tabernacle Day School since September 2009 and I am thoroughly impressed with this school. It is a comfortable, safe and an academically rich environment for school age children. The small class size provides opportunity for great interaction in the classroom. Not only am I pleased with the school but with the teachers! My child actually enrolled in Kindergarten last and her teacher was amazing. She is now in the 1st grade and she has another phenomenal teacher! I can't wait for her experience on next year as it just keeps getting better and better. I recommend this school to any parent who desires a rewarding academic experience for their child.

My child has been attending the school since fall 2008.I am pleased with the school however it is a lil pricey. The staff is ok,pretty friendly and the financial coordinator is great. It is a good starter school for the parent that is looking for some structure in their child's beginning stages of life. I would recommend this school to others however just like with any school and/or business there are some flaws. There is no perfect organization

My child currently attends preschool here. So far I am enjoying the School. My child s teacher is one of the best teachers at the school and comes highly recommended. Her class room is simply a good learning and developing environment. However, I feel that the security is not up to standards. The rear entrance for pick-up for the toddlers needs to be secured. I have come to pick my child up on several different occasions and found the babies in the room alone. This is unacceptable and needs to be addressed. The children should NEVER be left alone especially when they are sitting in the chair tables by themselves. Other than this GROSS oversight of NEGLECT, the school is OK.

My daughter has been attending St. Tabernacle Chrsitian Acasdemy since Sept 2008, I am currently removering her from this school as of June 2010. I recently found out that, this school tolerates Disruptive children and puts up with Out of control behavior because of the fear of losing a 'customer' because this is a Private school and most of the people pay out of their pocket. I believe that this type of tolerance I will not deal with and they just lost a Good Student, b-cuz they want to toleated the Out of control Ones. (Please be cautions, I wish someone would have warned me before I paid over $5,ooo. for this school...

I am a first year parent at the school. I think that the staff and teachers are very compassionate and caring. The learning curriculum is great. I think that it is above average. The teachers really give the kids the attention that they need, if it is one on one or the whole class that needs to be tought something. I love the school because the classes are really small. My daughter is in grade K and she loves it. I don't even have to find her a summer camp to attend, because the school has that too. I would recommend this school to any parent.

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.
