Phenomenal, my daughter is in kindergarten and she reads at a third grade level and she does dynamic multiplication. The teachers are caring and gifted. Parents are encouraged to involve themselves and we are involved.

What a wonderful school. I would highly reccomend it. Both of my boys attend and they are doing amazing stuff. It has a strong international focus and truly teaches children to be independent which builds their self confidence. The Spanish and Music programs begin at an early age. If you can look past the old building, you will be amazed at this school.

I love this school. My daughter has thrived academically, and she seems to enjoy going to class everyday. They proved a caring yet intellectually challenging learning environment. The international focus is a plus for me.

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.
