This is a great preschool environment for small children. The relationship with the daycare principal and teachers is warm and inviting. Both my sons attended it and they loved school!

This school has a wonderful warm, nurturing environment. The staff are very caring, and their lessons are Christ centered. There is a wonderful computer lab and library. The cafeteria provides wholesome cooked on site breakfasts and lunchs. The academic standard is good. The children are challenged, but not overwhelmed.

Everything about this school is awesome! From the challenging curriculum to truly caring teachers, to an enthusiastic principal that has a geniune love for education and the students. No doubt about it - this school is hard, and may not be for everyone. Those that graduate from SPLS will have a foundation for entry into the fine [state] universities.

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.
