I love this school. My son has been attending for a little over a year now and he is really thriving in the environment. The curriculum is designed to meet children where they are and as kids progress, their work progresses with them. The environment is very nurturing and is Christian-centered in an age appropriate way. Apparently many of the kids go on to be selected in many of the selective enrollment schools which is awesome. I hope this will be my experience too! I'm very happy and satisfied with my decision to enroll my son here.

The Mansion is an excellent school. The teachers are nurturing and professional. I love the assessment process. My child was extremely well prepared.

It's an average preschool. I did not feel connected as a parent to the school, nor was I able to make any decisions. The space in the classrooms is cramped.

This is an excellant school. My two boys have attended this school since the age of two and the things they have learned has put them well above the class as they entered 1st grade. I am forever grateful to the staff and administration for providing a great learning experience for my children. The summer program is also great. I would greatly recommend it!

My daughter attended Creative Mansion for about a year. I loved the nurturing yet stern environment that the teachers and other staff provided there. Not only that but she learned so much during the time she was there. When going into kindergarten this year, she is at the top of her class. Her teacher even changed her work to accomodate her becauase she was well ahead of the other students. I was very pleased and she will return for the summers to come!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
