This school is the worst! i am not the only parent that would confirm this, This lady that runs the school is the teacher/principal, in what state is that legal. the school has a handful of kids there is no academics what so ever. They get third grade books that are not on there levels. This lady is a scheme she will kind you out of your money before you walk in the door.

This school holds students from actually pushing themselves to higher learning grounds. When I went to this school I was on a lower learning level than I should've been. It turned me into a lazy student which held me from achieving higher academics in my school career. There were no reading classes or teachers that had actual teaching experiences. The principle is a money slob who does what she feels with the students and faculty. I advise parents to never put their children in a school like this even though it shelters them from the "real" school experience.

This is a great and blessed school in which my sons attended for many years and our family has been blessed just from being connected to this very school. My oldest son is 19 and goes to Penn State and is doing well.

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.
