School Reviews

My children have been enrolled here for 7+ years, and we have found this school to be an enormous blessing to us as we raise Godly children. It is Christ-centric in ways most Christian schools are not. It is VERY budget-friendly for those looking for private education. Just a wonderful school.

This is a school for parents who place priority in learning, moral behaivor and parent involvement. The children are bright, articulate, intelligent and motivated. This comes from a "team" effort on the part of parent and teachers. It is a must for those wanting more from their children.
