I have been teaching at HBCA for 7 wonderful years. At HBCA we strive to give each student an environment where they are cared for as well as educated. The student to teacher ratio is kept low in order to focus on the best needs of the students. In each classroom the teachers make sure use both project- based learning and cross- curricular study. This allows the students to be engaged and to get the most out of all areas of instruction. I challenge any parent to please come visit! We are always looking for new minds and friends. ~Mrs.Winky

Handley Baptist is a great school. The student vs teacher ratio is low which gives your child good quality one on one time. However, I wish this school had a better playground for the little ones.

Very nurturing environment and a great academic program! If you are looking for a new school, this one should be at the top of your list!

These teachers are exemplary! Each grade has a very low student to teacher ratio, so that your child gets more one-on-one education. Also tuition is much less that many other private schools.

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.
