We're only 6 months in at this stage - our child entered at Kindergarten. It's been a spectacular experience so far. We've greatly enjoyed the truly diverse parents and the engaged community. The Head of School is very impressive, has a great personality and knows every child and every family. The music (violin and keyboard), reading and math have been highlights (the curriculum is STEAM - STEM plus the arts). The fact that it only goes through 6th grade rather than through 8th means it truly is a place for kids. We're a long ways off yet, but we are encouraged that the placement track record for next schools is very strong. Of the 40 children who graduated from 6th grade in the last two years, 9 went to Dana Hall and 7 went to Nobles. The other schools were excellent too. We live in the Back Bay and the school has been kind enough to subsidize and help arrange transport. Our daughter takes a bus in the morning and we have a sitter take the green line to the Chestnut Hill stop (a block or two from the school) and she rides that back home. We're thrilled.

I am not sure what happened with the first review but we are extremely pleased with the school. The school has a balanced environment of academics, art and social emotional supports.
