The attention that this school gives to its students in superb. My son was able to go from pre-k to 1st grade in one year, and LOVES going to school!

This is the worst school that I have ever attended. The owner is the rudest person that you will ever meet and all he whant's is your money.

Our son has attended this school for the last two years. The personal attention he gets in class can't be beat. He's not just 'another student,' he's an important part of his class. They act like a team! The teachers all work together and are so wonderful. The school has a new principal this year too. He is very professional and very knowledgable. He is more accessible than the last principal. He always gives straight answers and is even willing to talk to parents from home. This is a great school and we will certainly continue working with them to educate our child.

My daughter has attended this school for 3 years.The teachers in this school are the main asset.They make the pros outway the cons.Im now considering taking her out of this school because of the reputation its getting as well as the cost.

My preschool age son has learned more in one year than I could have taught him in three years by attending this superb school. A little stricter admissions would be nice, but most of his peers are very good children. My son is also very attached to his teacher. i would recommend this school to any age child!

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.
