School Reviews

  • Recommended August 23, 2013 - I have four children in school here, in elementary school and junior high. Wouldn''t want them to go anywhere else! Love the teachers, the curriculum is challenging, and my children are developing a biblical world view. My children are involved in the sports and fine arts programs as well. Great facility, great school! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - I go to this school and love it! I play clarinet, handbells, and I sing in choir. In fourth grade you can sing in choir, and in fifth grade you can play in band and you play handchimes until seventh grade. - Posted by Student/Alumni
