I am thrilled with the low teacher-student ratio... often fewer than 10:1. Upper elementary students read with lower elementary students. Emphasizes making choices God's way. My son, going into third grade, is reading books from the 5th grade classroom. I have seen the principal meet and work with elementary students... and he also teaches high school math (due to his background as an engineer).

My experience with this school has been less than satisfactory. The disciplinary actions this school takes against bullying is very questionable.There were several instances of direct bullying towards my child that were constantly brushed under the table by the teacher and the principal. I was even given the option by a teacher to go to another school instead of working together to solve the problem at hand. Staff at this school did not acknowledge issues that may have affected my childs learning ability and his saftey. This school would rather you as a parent compromise your values rather than adress and solve the problem.

My first grade son is reading chapter books to his toddler brother. Thanks HBA for phonics emphasis. Also strong emphasis on doing things God's way. Great foundations for the rest of his life. Easy access to teachers, principal, etc.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
