Is this the same school that was in Maryland Heights? It keeps bouncing around from place to place. It left grace church then went further west because it didn't want to deal with the North County families.! My family visited this school and they moved further west after leaving Grace. Now they have found a Florist Church and have come back in town because this community will choose them without the background and research of what they actually offer. Mediocre academics.. They may be nice enough but not much else. Safe. Really mediocre offering Make a choice worth the tuition.

This is a great Christian School with great Curriculum in a God centered environment. My daughter started reading in Kindergarten. Right now she in first grade and she is an avid reader. She comes home everyday telling me about the great things she learned at school. Staff is kind and teachers are great with the kids, I highly recommend it.
