School Reviews

Great school. Academics are good, esp. the critical thinking & analysis skills used in the reading program. The school offers music & art in all grades, Spanish begins in grade 3, and extra activities such as Envirothon are available to middle school students. Students are nurtured as they grow intellectually, personally, and spiritually. The school values include respect for others and acceptance of each other as a unique person, created by God. It is also a family-friendly school; parents'' involvement is encouraged.
