My daughter has just started this school year of 2009 and so far I have no complaints. The principal is great and my daughter really seems to enjoy every moment of it.

my child has attended this school for 5 yrs. effectiveness of the tesachers varies greatly. she has had some wonderful experiences and some questionable ones. the school has begun to deteriorate in terms of concern for the children. we have now become more interested in fund raising than in the quality of the childrens education and safety.

The principal is outgoing and has every aspect of the students in mind. Much energy and great vision.

The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. They spend extra time addressing every child's needs. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. Parents are encouraged to participate in school activities. This school offers a safe place to express feelings and encourages students to try new activities.

My child has been a student at this school for 3 years. Although I love the small class size and the closeness among the students the administration is lacking. The teachers are impersonal to the parents and sometimes are offended if parents ask to many questions. The principal defends the teachers without listening to the parents concerns before making a decision as to what the outcome needs to be. Good school but administration needs to learn some social graces.

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.
