Excited about the new staff and direction Morning Star is going. With the new leadership comes a fresh perspective on programs, the future, and professional attitude of the staff.

This school needs great improvement.EVERYDAY when I pick up my son, there are high school students "babysitting" the kids during the aftercare hours and they are constantly on their phones texting or doing something and this is extremely unacceptable. There is no way you can watch that many children at a time, small children, when your sitting in the corner, in a rocking chair, with your face in your phone. I came in one day and asked the lady about sign language because there was a sign on the wall with hand signs and she says "no we don't teach that. Kids should talk at this age and know how to communicate instead of pointing or ask for things in sign language". They don't embrace any foreign languages or do they care to WHAT!!! Who says that. Good thing my child wasn't deaf or else she would have heard it. It made me ashamed that she even said that. Also, although their tuition is kind of low for the area, I don't see much investment back into the facility or classrooms. Also when my child is sick, I expect someone to care enough to wipe his nose. Why am I picking up my child and snot is crusted all on his face? The staff is extremely lazy and the entire center needs a facelift.

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.
