We are a military family and came upon this school by chance three years ago when my husband was stationed at Ft. Lewis. I cannot say enough fantastic things about this school. Small class sizes cater to both advanced students and those challenged. We have sent our 3 sons here for the last 3 years even when public school became an option. The cost is very reasonable. They have learned an incredible amount, putting them a grade and a half above their current grade in testing scores. In addition, they have wanted to go to school each day because the teachers are loving, firm and fun. If you live in the Lakewood, Steilacoom, Dupont area, I highly recommend you check out this school- you will be impressed!

Where to begin? I came across this school by chance on GreatSchools.org last year and it has been one of the best choices I have made (yet) for our children! Small class size, loving/nurturing environment, family oriented, affordable, and the curriculum is amazing. My 2 children are thriving and have learned so much so far. We plan to keep them there as long as we are stationed here.

Excellent and affordable private school education. I have two children who attend this school and I feel the values they learn at school and academics surpass what is offered in the local public school. One of my children is a kinetic learner and the staff has gone above and beyond to make sure he is getting the type of education he needs. The classrooms have a very small student to teacher ratio, which I love. You can tell the staff truly cares about the children and are great at communicating with the parents. I cannot say enough great things about this school, it is a real gem.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
