Batt Private School has been one of the most positive experiences of my daughter's educational years. Not only has the school challenged her academically, (she is a gifted student), but she has been given the opportuniity to grow personally as an individual. Martial Arts, public speaking, and volunteering for various community projects have opened her eyes to the possibilities that await her outside the classroom. The school's teachers and administration are friendly, cooperative, and truly care about each and every child's success and well-being. The emphasis on leadership skills and global cultures have encouraged her to continue with her language studies, and allowed her to see different ways she can contribute to the world.
My son and daughter are both at Batt Private in the Upper School.They are both vastly different personalities and learners, but the school has accommodated each of them as individuals. The Head of School and the Head of the Upper school have kept close tabs on my son's progress as a student and as a maturing young adult. They both have supported and been in attendance to my daughter's consuming gymnastics career and insured she is able to achieve success both in her sport and her academics. Bigger is not always better and a school is important for what is on the inside, not the outside.
Batt Private School has a very advanced academic curriculum. The students are challenged to achieve their highest potential and encouraged to do their best in all areas. Batt strives to promote our future leaders to be self-disciplined, learn the value of hard work, and given them a sense of accomplishment and develop their positive self-esteem. The music and art programs have inspired many students to achieve their dreams and aspire to do so much more. They have been challenging and rewarding at the same time. The staff is highly qualified with a desire to see the student achieve to their highest potential. They are always looking for new and innovative ways to spark the students learning and interests. The parents are very involved in all areas of the school. They love the school and are invited and encouraged to participate in any and all activities. Everyone who attends Batt loves it!
This is the most amazing school. The small classes make the highest achievement by each student an everyday possibility. The student body is unique, and offers a lifelong network of friends from around the world for each child. The very best school in our area, with the goal of bringing out the very best in each student. We are grateful each day for Batt Private School. We have been at the school from 5th grade through 12th grade, and have experience with other private and public schools in our area. This is the extraordinary school that parents search for and dream of. There are few places like it.
This is a wonderful school. My child came here from a very good public school. I noticed an immediate improvement in her attitude about school. She is now excited about learning, instead of being bored to tears. The curriculum is accelerated and the extras, art, music and computers are incredible.
The school is nice but expensive and it is a small school, do to that there are some pluses and some minuses (+- Easier to learn because the teacher gives the child more attention. Minus- everyone knows everything about each other)
