My child has been going to this school since she was 8 months old and is now 2 1/2. We have loved the whole experience. Teachers are very nice. She has learned a ton and made many great friends. My only complaint is the tuition. It goes down as they get older and change classrooms but every 6 months or so there is a tuition increase. I am sad about this bc we cannot afford this school when we have a 2nd child so we are now looking for a new school for her. If you can afford it, I'd say go here!

We love this school. My son and I had a horrible first preschool experience and the Goddard School was a saving grace for us. He is very happy now and it is a huge relief to go about my work day knowing that he is doing grand. His teacher Ms. Alecia is wonderful with children and has worked very hard to make sure that our son has found a perfect fit in her preschool class. He comes home everyday with a smile, excited to show us what he learned that day and eager to return for more.

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.
