This small school nestled in a quiet neighborhood brings hope to children and parents in regards to education. Seasoned teachers and administrators put the children first and have created a safe and loving atmosphere for learning. With small class sizes and dedicated teachers, I've found this school to be just what my children needed as they grow in their formative years!

Everything is nice, very diverse, many international students. Students get a lot of help from the teachers. International students get a great experience by staying with a host family. Upper school students help out the younger students. You can do an internship inside the school if you don't have a full schedule which is very helpful for college applications. Also the school offers a lot of different and very interesting electives. The basketball program is really great. Teachers support the student athletes. You make a lot of new friends.
Being a High School student, I feel like we miss out on a lot of typical experiences. The school has very good teachers who have a lot to offer but we don't have a lot of events or clubs for students to be involved. Unless you are a basketball player, your activity won't get paid to much attention. I've been going here off and on since 4th grade and i feel that if you grow up in this environment its a good experience, but coming from a public school it will probably be a hard transition. The school has a lot of unusually strict rules and they can be somewhat biased. The courses that are offered are good but because the school is so small they don't offer much. I think that the elementary program is really good and that it helps children grow in a healthy environment, same with the middle school. The high school has a lot of things it needs to improve on and is centered around the basketball program.
