This school is the best school I have seen around. My son looks forward to going to school every day. The way they are treated is incredible, its like the teachers want to be there. The really care about parent involvement and volunteering. Their academic programs are also excellent and even the pre-k has access to music, art, gym and computers.

The school is wonderful.I love it b/c it has a 3 yr old program so children can start learning at an early age.The school has parents be involved in the school regardless if it just volunteering in the cafeteria.As parents you can feel for certain that your children will learn b/c of the small class ratios.

This school is teriffic. Their percentages on state test are phenominal and their attendance records are superb. They have a great music program that presents at least 5 plays/musicals a year. Every student participates unless their families religious beleifs prohibits them. Parents are required to help in the cafeteria between 10-12 days per year and are also encouraged to visit classes and participate in class activities.

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.
