Having researched the Classical Approach, I found this school to be one of the only schools to actually teach it. I must say though, it was a bit overwhelming going through a year of this school. It was very demanding, and at times very intimidating. As a newer parent, I felt way over my head with the curriculum, parent demands, and also learning how to teach my own child. The "old timers", the ones that had been there from the beginning and helped create it. felt right at home, but the new parents were stressed out. This school was not comfortable unless you had been here for a few years or more. This school is great, but there is no let up to breathe! The emails to read, grids to follow and mandatory parental meetings are at a heavy pace. This will be your entire life, no trips, weekends off, etc. The payoff is great though. Your child will learn a lot, and realize how much potential they really have. However, it is very hard to be a newcomer. Realize that you will have information overload and it comes with a cost... tuition. Yes, tuition, plus books, plus donations of additional monies at least twice a year. Parents, get ready to work at this school!!!!
