Previous reviews are all accurate: school is excellent for lower elementary level, but consistant academic excellence is lacking in upper elementary school for all the reasons listed by others. Because school goes only through 8th grade equivilant, all students must transition to another program. That is where the inconsistancies in curriculum, educational progress and instructor ability can overwhelm a student and his/her family. School seems to lack a coherent set of goals and seems to lack oversight in achieving professed goals. Our experience leaves us feeling that it is a wonderful institution for those at third grade level and below. Since it is a Montessori program, it's difficult to apply a test based, quantitative evaluation to the program. Anecdotally, many parents of former students have told us the transition to other academies and public shcools have been difficult, with most stories revolving around students' weaknesses in math and science.

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.
