It's hard to imagine a better environment for the kids. They do have strong academics, but what I appreciate the most is the concern with the kids "holistic growth" - values, music, community involvement, healthy eating. Kids don't get overworked. Downside is sports: while they do their best, a school this size will never be able to have competitive teams.
Lots of parents involvement, and lots of fundraising...
Great school in all academic and social respects. Great teachers. My daughter has learned much in her three years here. I agree that the constant barrage of solicitations for money are annoying, and the tuition is high. However, if you can afford it, your child will get an excellent education here.
A school that offers an excellent education as well as gives back so much to the community and charity. Teaching the kids so much about life as well as giving back. What an amazing place to have a child to learn, grow and be part of a special family.
They really take good care of my girls. They have excellent teachers and a great program. It's a small school so everybody knows you and your kids. We are so happy to be able to have our 3 daughters there.
I was a teacher at this school and was very impressed, so much so that when I had my own children we waitlisted them at birth! The faculty is very professional and truly love the children. And the academic program is one of the best in the city.
I love this school. They are nurturing and caring. Athletics are good for an elementary school. Parents are very involved. Only problem is the tuition (high) and the constant requests for additional money (which wears thin after a while). the students get a solid foundation in academics.
