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.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
