I can't say enough about Miss Duffy and how she has set up my child for success. She has encouraged my daughter to work hard and excel. She has no problem asking Miss Duffy for help and knows she cares about her. She enjoys going to school -- what more can you ask for?
As a parent of a child at Seventh Ave School, I couldn't be happier. My daughter has grown 10 fold in her education, kindness, respectfulness, and overall development. The communication with the teachers and staff is amazing. I feel completely connected to the school. Her teacher, Ms. Hill, has not only pinpointed her strong points and weaknesses, but she has developed an individual plan for her. This plan not only helps her improve her weak areas (which I completely expect from her school), but also helps her excel in her strong subjects. I think most schools would just let my daughter drift through her easier subjects, but not Ms. Hill. She demanded and implemented a higher level of learning for her. That is a special teacher and a special school. Seventh Ave doesn't just want to develop a "grade passing child", they want to develop a powerful, educated, future generation. The current principal, faculty, and teachers are doing just that. Thank you Seventh Ave. We love you!!!!!u
Due to the small size (and small class sizes), students are more accountable for their actions, as they are unable to get lost in the shuffle. They are reminded numerous times daily that they are part of a school AND a school family.
Strong sense of community due to the small size and diverse population- truly feels like their home away from home. There is a sense that they are truly valued and cared for, and the academic rigor is very age-appropriate.
Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who put their hearts and souls into everything they do each day to make 7th Ave a better place for our kids. I was told this was the "best kept secret in LaGrange", and it is too true! I wouldn't send them anywhere else- thanks again teachers and staff!!!
