Assessments of a student’s skills are conducted on a daily basis so we can best support his/her learning. In addition, formal assessments are conducted three times during the year. These assessments not only help parents and teachers to understand where their child began the school year in his skillset and/or development, but also what areas can be strengthened. These assessments guide us, as educators, in developing our curriculum so that it matches the needs of the children in the class. At the end of the year we are able to see how the child has advanced throughout the year.

Parent of a student
Love this school!
My children gained confidence, mastered core subjects beyond their respective grade levels, developed their public speaking skills, enjoyed learning, and received exposure to the arts and many other wonderful activities that they would not have received somewhere else. The faculty and staff are professional and caring. I love this school.
Instilling Confidence and Excellence
My son and daughter attend Excelsior Arts Preparatory School. This school demonstrates faith in students’ abilities. They focus on students’ overall development, including spiritual. The teachers and administration care about the students. Most or all, the students have confidence and work above their respective grades. When I observe my children’s classmates, it is obvious that they are happy in their learning environment.
Parent of two students
They stick to Christian values
Great, because it is one of the very few Christian schools in the area that sticks to Christian values that holds high academic standards for your child while making sure he/she is a long learner.
My daughter went in at 5 not being able to read fluently and by the 6th month she was reading fluently. I have seen such a turnaround because of the dedication of her teacher. Thanks to all the wonderful staff as well.
