School Reviews

Class sizes are not above 25 children, kindergarten and first would perhaps have an aid at that size. Excellent faith based curriculum! My kids went right into honors classes in high school. Safe, loving environment, art, incredible music program, sports, full computer lab, summer programs, middle school trips, musicals, leadership opportunities. Check it out!
