Any parent interested in this school should carefully investigate the school's history and recent transitions. There are many questionable practices within its leadership and non-profit board structure. In addition, staff turnover and qualifications should be taken into consideration. This would definitely not be my choice for educating a child in my family.

This school has left the church that founded it and set out on thier own. I gave them the benefit of the doubt....This school is lacking leadership and integrity. The staff told me what I wanted to hear at first .....then I finally caught on and removed my child. We enrolled in public school and discovered that we were a year behind in math and english.....A private school should be superior...not inferior. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

This school should remove the word Christian from its name. Very unorganized, poor leadership. I would never recommend this school to anyone....

A wonderful school. The small classes, combined with the caring and dedicated staff has made a huge difference in my son. Not only am I happy, but he actually enjoys school! The administration of the academics are challeging but not overwhelming. The athletic programs are great. I really like, recommend and appreciate this school.

Wonderful school, with small sized classes. Classes are interesting and children very well taught. Would recommend.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
