This is a very strong learning program. Im very content, I (my child) began as part of the Learning Lab while they were enrolled in another school. And then we became full day participants in their Discovery program. Both programs are outstanding, Learning Lab allowed my child to exceed her classmates and help in areas she had deficiencies. The Discovery program is great and convenient for my work schedule. I would definitely recommend to other parents looking.

There are three things that draw me to In The Beginning. One is the academic program. Two is the teacher commitment and preparation. Three is the physical structure of the facitility. There are not many school which posess such a warm and caring environment.

is receiving. Their curriculum is slight advanced, which really has improved my child's reading & comprehension. He noticeably has a stronger grasp on letter's, number's and additionally sciences. I'm very happy and plan to continue my child's matriculation thru elementary level at In The Beginning.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
