School Reviews

My son is in his second year at this school. I have nothing but positive things to say about the school. They have been wonderful to him (and to our whole family). I love the fact that the school wants parents to be very involved in their child's school life. My son's teachers have been wonderful so far as well. They've been very approachable and always accessible should we have any concern or question. In addition, I love that the teaching is Christ-centered. The school administration and teachers incorporate many opportunities for their students to reach out to those in need and put what is being taught inside of the classroom into action in the world. I would highly recommend this school.
