I love that my kids come home and it is obvious that they love learning! *My 2nd grader loves to share in great detail all about the science experiment. *My 4th grader is often found reading historical fiction or even non fiction about the time period she is studying just for fun! *My preschooler, just the other day was talking about "Go-Go" (Van Gough" and showing us her blue swirls and stars as she had made her own starry night in school.

My child loves going to school - the teachers are wonderful and the small class sizes are great. I appreciate the time taken to get to know the families and the multiple volunteer opportunities available as well.

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.
