My son graduated from the Phoenix in 2012 and very was well equipped to deal with all facets of high school: curriculum, students & teachers. We have been thrilled with the broad and diverse education afforded by The Phoenix School, which includes life skills, community service, and mentoring as well as academics. They integrate creativity, curiosity and collaboration into their curriculum and emphasize analysis and critical thinking rather than regurgitating of facts on a test. My daughter will graduate from Phoenix next year, and although we will no longer have a student here - we will always be a Phoenix School family.
This is what I love about The Phoenix School- 1- The teachers have multiple degrees and years of experience. The teachers really know my child's learning style and personality and help them become the amazing individuals they were meant to be. 2-The school is structured in a way that inspires children to learn, they are eager for input and invested in learning. The teachers are able to creatively engage children and give them independence and responsibility to make choices. This has empowered my kids to take their education to whole different level. Its "cool" to be smart at Phoenix! 3- Teachers accommodate my gifted child to advance while staying within her peer group. They also accommodate my other child's challenges by offering choices and empowering her to take responsibility for her education. 4- It's the only school that is really successful with global learning, they Skype with classrooms around the world and learn about different cultures. It's amazing! 5- All the graduates have a solid foundation to take into high school and they all transition well into a variety of competitive high schools on the North Shore and in Greater Boston. I'm in love with this school!
