I can't recommend this school highly enough! We were searching for a Kindergarten and found new friends & mentors for our children (really we consider them our extended family)! We have counted our blessings ever since and if they ever expand the school we'll be first in line to return! The children are taught to work to their potential. They are immersed in creative, fun & relevant work in many different mediums to reach all the different ways kids learn. The math & reading programs were superb! The staff is dedicated and truly cares about each child's development (academically, emotionally & physically). The music/art/PE classes were taught well and again allowed the kids to live up to their potential by letting them take on lessons that were advanced & rewarding. Good citizenship was expected and supported in a nurturing, respectful and safe environment. Our family cherishes our time at Sno-Springs!

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.
