School Reviews

My three boys go to Masters Elementary School and Pre-school program. I can''t say enough about the quality of education they receive there. The staff and teachers are committed to providing an environment that instills integrity in my children. I am confident my boys are learning on a high academic level, and will leave the school with sound morals as they prepare for college and beyond.

I highly recommend this school! All three of my elementary school aged children attend and I am continually amazed at the strong academic attention my children receive each day. The small class size prevents the excessive wastes of time we experienced in public school. Teachers KNOW my children's personality, aptitude, and learning styles.... This information follows them from grade to grade so that the next year's teacher can hit the ground running. The middle and upper school students are great role models for my children and impress me with their class, style, and Christian values..... I am so happy that there is a school in this area that gives us both strong academics and strong Christian values.....
