School Reviews

Excellent school! Cutting edge cirriculum! Teaches students to have respect for others and yourself. Most of all they will show you the way to Heaven!

I love this school, the teachers show how much they care about the students and their abilities to suceed. They go the extra mile to make sure all children suceed, they don''t just pass them to get them through school. If a student is struggling, the teachers will make every effort to help this student to suceed with his class. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a good education with teachers who care and a principle and pastor who will make you feel like your family. This is the school for you. I thank GOD daily for bring this school and church into my life.
