I grew up and graduated from this school. Now my kids attend this school. I absolutely love it! You feel like a family rather than an outsider with just your kid attending a school. Very personable. The teachers are caring, compassionate and strive to help your child be their best. It is a safe environment with excellent staff! I highly recommend this school to anyone!

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.
