I would recommend this school to any parent that is concerned about their child receiving a Christ-centered, Biblically sound, and academically rigorous education. The teachers are solid and demonstrate constant concern for their students. I have three children and have been satisfied with the education each one of them has received to this point. I also appreciate the school''s posture of not lowering their standards to accommodate governmental curriculum or testing. I don''t have much money but will send my children nowhere else as long as I am able. I love this place!
