I can't say enough about this school. Amazing teachers, a well-rounded, gifted education for ALL students (History, Math, Science, Writing, Reading, Social Studies, etc.), P.E., Spanish Immersion, Studio Art, and Music every other day, advancement in math according to the child's INDIVIDUAL abilities and not constricted to their particular grade level, exposure and open discussion of classical literature not taught in many schools today, lots of extra-curricular activities, and a culture of respect and friendship fostered throughout the school by faculty and students. There are also both a head teacher and assistant teacher in EVERY class so that every child gets the individualized attention they need. Teachers are trained to facilitate lots of classroom discussion within all subjects, so that they are learning not just from the teacher, but also from each other. Students are very used to being able to speak comfortably in front of their classmates knowing they will be respected, regardless if their answer happens to be correct or not. There is quite a bit of homework, which I believe could stand be lightened up, but other than that Archway has been an amazing fit for my daughter!
