Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My son did his pre school and now I have decided to keep him for KG. the mangement changed and much better than before! very efficient and eager to make all the chnages for making the school better. snacks have already changed from the unhelathy junk food to organic fruits and vegetables. The teachers are good, some have language issues but overall pretty good.

The teachers are great, but the management is lower than unsatisfactory. The owner is terrible. All he wants is money. The kids suffer because of it.

I like the school very much so far. We have been there since Kindergarten and are now in 2nd grade. Although I love the teachers and admin staff, the owner has flip flopped several times about wether or not he is goign to go beyond 3rd grade. It has been a very frustrating process since we were planning on going there through 6th grade and then to public school for him to change it twice since we have been here.

My family can strongly recommend Ms. Carolyn's Kindergarten class. The curriculum is great. Ms. Carolyn is a kind and loving teacher. This is a reasonalble alternative to 1/2 kindergarden in the public school. However, I think the elementary grades are still going through some growing pains - developing their curriculum, establishing teaching teams, additional classroom space and maintaining student class sizes. It appears to me that the administration is more focused on establishing The Oxford Tutorial program than on grades 1-3 (where the majority of the students are right now).

Although some of the teachers are great, the school administration takes on an attitude that the school is 'better than others' when in fact he will not consider accredidation due to having to meet state guidelines. The school continues to increase their tuition without providing the services they committed to in the fall (ie spanish lessons.) If you are looking for a pre-k or kindergartern class, then RDS may be a good choice as they are very nurturing with the younger children however, I would seriously reconsider if a strong academic program is important to you in the elementary school aged child.
