School Reviews

There are many words to describe this great school, but, because of the limitation of the writing space here, I must be concise. This sentence alone should tell you how I feel about this school. My son is currently in Kindergarten and has been going since TK. I knew I picked the right school for my son since the TK year because he's been getting up on time in the morning just to go to class. I see the positivity in him every day as he is thriving to learn academically, socially, and most importantly, Christian morals. He comes home reciting songs and telling me the bible stories that he's learned in school and interesting school experiments, such as The Elephant Toothpaste Experiment. The staff is wonderful as they all greet him and say his name when passing by. The school principal must have a photographic memory because he knows each one of the children's names while greeting them in the mornings. One of the other benefits is the small classroom size so that the teacher can emphasize the fun in learning and has the time to spend with a student who would need additional help. Another benefit is that the school cares about its community as evidenced by the school and public events they host throughout the year. Because of the reasons above, I will enroll my son in 1st grade and continue to do so each year.
