Welcoming, safe, inclusive. Academics are challenging. No "teaching to the tesr". Love that they uphold our family values and encourage a broader world view. Children who've graduated moved on to be ahead of their peers at high school. Do wish for more field trips...located in such a culturally rich, historic location.

A wonderful faith-based community with the best teachers and staff. I attended from Pre-K through eighth grade and loved it!
Attended this school for kindergarten through eighth grade (didn't offer preK at the time). One part of this school that I enjoyed and appreciated was that it was a smaller school that had teachers that wanted to do their job to the fullest potential... for the most part. One part of this school that I didn't agree with would be some of the teachers and the nitpicking and assumed rules that were inforced by some of the teachers. Another section of this school that over the years I have found to be unhelpful would be their English curriculum. In middle school especially, there wasn't a structured program or a qualified teacher to teach. For example, my sixth grade English teacher was a second grade teacher, my seventh grade year was taught by both the social studies teacher and religion teacher (it was co-teaching and didn't benefit the children), and my eighth grade year English class was taught my the religion and computer teacher (same person).
