Taught me as much as my kids. Beautifully trained staff full of patience and creativity. No problem to big for this group. All 3 of my children attended and I still rely on them for support. I'm so grateful for our experience there.

A fabulous place that I feel fortunate to have found. No worries in leaving my young ones there, and I know they are learning things about conflict resolution and interpersonal relationships that I didn't learn until I was 30. Caring teachers, structured curriculum with plenty of individual choices. Highly recommended.

This is our third year at The Family School. I cannot say enough great things about it. The teacher/child ratio is low, most of the teachers and assistants have been there for years, there is a strong emphasis on social/emotional development, and parent involvement and input is highly encouraged. In addition to this, there is definitely an appreciation for the idea that children are individuals who learn at their own rate, in their own way. Overall, it is a diverse and warm environment that feels like an extension of the home.

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.
