We have had our son in this school for three years. The first two were in Pre-K, and now for full day Kindergarten. If you are looking for a school for your child; look no further. Mrs. Birsching, the Pre-K teacher, and Mrs. Rodmyre, the Kindergarten teacher, are two of the most caring and patient people I have ever met. They really made a difference with my son. They take the time with every child to ensure success for them academically, socially, and most importantly help them to grow in their faith. If they notice any areas that your child needs help in; they take the time to discuss it with you, give you helpful tips for helping them at home, and update you on their progress. It is evident EVERY day that they truly care about each and every child that walks through thier door each day. We are excited for the next 8 years knowing that our son is in the right school.

Our daughter has been going there 3 years now, Pre-K through 1st grade. Every teacher has been awesome! We're not only impressed with her academic skills but her knowledge of God's word. They are doing a tremendous job! The school could probably use more parent support.

Very good school. have had children enrolled for a few years and have been very pleased with teachers, curriculum, etc. One shortcoming would be combination of grades (1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8 share teacher & room)

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.
