The school truly focuses on the whole child. If your child is excelling in math or reading (for example) then he/she can do math and reading with a higher grade. If your child needs more outside time than you can get at a traditional public school then this is a good fit for you. The classes go outside three times each day, and often more than that for nature hikes or outdoor science and art lessons. If you re hoping to avoid the standardized testing craze then you ll be very happy at Primavera. I believe over half of the students receive some financial aid and the feeling on campus is that we re all in this together. Finally, the teacher turnover is very low. To me, that says a tremendous amount about how they feel about their work environment.
very elitist staff and board. Preschool and kindergarten are excellent but after that the education goes way down. There is a reason a lot of parents move their children after kindergarten. the campus is great but the staff, director and the board all think they are........ If you're rich doctor and think you're better than everybody else you'll fit in just fine.
All of our children have attended Primavera School. This was an amazing school for them to spend their childhood years. The staff instills the love of learning into the children. There is no traditional grading and it has not harmed the children at all. They go onto Middle School and High School and usually excel at the top of their class or at the strengths. I have attended awards ceremonies and have seen just about every Primavera student get awards in Middle School and High School. Primavera is a well balanced ,loving and nurturing school and home away from home.
Excellent school. The focus is on learning not testing. The students are nurtured by their present teacher and the other teachers at the school too. There is a healthy balance of free time, outdoor play, hiking, and going on field trips - along with academic rigor. For example, the students all do math at the same time so students can be group with others who are at their level. In other words, a first grader can work on third grade math with the third graders if he/she needs to.
Because they take into account children who would otherwise be looked over by creating an environment that nurtures them as people in a learning community rather than potential test scores
this is the best school i ever went to great teachers and staff, small classrooms and great campus
