The Alexander School successfully serves many different types of students, with small classes and caring, dedicated teachers. Along with the strong core curriculum and fun elective classes, they teach self-reliance, acceptance and respect. Students enjoy attending the school, make friends that last a lifetime, and speak openly of their gratitude at a heart-warming graduation ceremony.

These are not educators they are mercenaries out to take money from struggling students and parents. They show no compassion for students and are unethical in their financial dealings. Stay away!

Small classes allow exceptional interaction with teacher and other students. Program teaches study skills and time management. Excelent college prep for students not working to capabilities.

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.
