Excellent pre-K/Kindergarten program. You won't find a better private or public program. You get small class sizes and evaluations for reading, spelling and math. The children are taught to their ability. If your child is advanced - this is the place for you. They will challenge your child every day and assess progress periodically. My son was moved to 1st grade math in Kindergarten and he still loves math. No other school I talked to was willing to accommodate his "talent".
I have 2 sons who attented Krambrooke. The young 5yr old program (Jr Kindergarten) followed by Kindergarten were the best schooling foundation for my boys. The option of full or half day, small class sizes, the attention given to each child and Awesome Teachers are just a few wonderful points. My older son had Mrs Young and to this day (now in 4th grade) she is his favorite teacher. My younger son had Mrs. Kanaby who we just loved. The staff and teachers at Krambrooke truely care about each student from the heart. I highly recommened and do often Krambrooke Griffin Academy.
My daughter has attended the summer program and loved it. The private school, while small, is like homeschooling away from home. The kids get so much attention, and you feel like the teachers genuinely care about your child. I couldn't believe the IOWA scores and that a kindergartener could score at a first grade level. The teachers work really hard to make sure the children are learning and having fun.
my daughter has been in this school and overall it is just ok. there are a couple of employees whom deal with the children are unprofessional and rude to the children. also the atmosphere is depressing as you enter it is very dark with no light and you can barely see your shoes. also the summer program was very dull with only one or two field trips the whole summer. I was very disappointed as i thought my child would have more fun. it is also not the cleanest daycare/school.
It is getting close to 'Back To School' time. If your thinking of a New School or your childs First School. Look no further. Check out Krambrooke-Griffin! You hit the JACKPOT ! The school is a blessing. The pre-K and Kindergarten programs are the best. The student to teacher ratio is a Big Plus! I can't believe how much my children learned last year. The safe, well organized one on one learning environment is wonderful. All the teachers are to be commended. Music lessons,computer lab, after school activities, clubs, art, field trips, latch key, day care, fun summer learning programs, advanced math and much more... The Owners and Teachers are truly dedicated to providing the best education and learning environment for Your Children. The parents are fantastic. Our children will be attending Krambrooke thru 8 th grade. Until then, I have peace of mind as far as educating them.
this is great school for children who realy need that one to one attention. Class size is very small and it makes things a lot easier when youare trying to teach a difficult lesson.
The negative reviews about Krambrooke-Griffin are probably from the parents of the kids that are disruptive in the classroom and have been suspended, or had detentions. This school is a place that all children can learn at their own pace. Iif there is behavior problems it is addressed immediately and when it is not resolved thru the parents discipline it is then resolved thru the school and there right to have the student removed from the class until the behavior is under control. It is not fair to the other children in the class to be subjected to a behavior from a peer who is not willing to follow the rules that are set in the school. Those parents should be more involved with discipline and implementing the rules in school, class and in the world.
My daughter has attended this school for nine years. Over the years she has received the love (yes love), nurturing and instruction that is necessary to succeed. I am concerned over the parent who feels there are behavior problems at Krambrooke. There are prblems at every school, private or public. The question is whether or not the parent is willing to work with the faculty to correct the problems at hand. Schools are not babysitters, nor are they the cure all for issues that come through the doors. Each child is different and learns in different ways. Some relish the arts, others are academically inclined but socially unsure. My daughter has thrived at Krambrooke. There is no eutopia, or else we'd all have our children there. My daughter on the other hand feel she has found hers. She's happy, safe and thriving. It's what I always wanted. Mary
What?!??! Behavior issues??!?! Unsafe environment?!?!? Unexperienced teachers?!?! I have no idea what this parent is talking about. We are in our 4th year at Krambrooke and I could not be happier with the teachers, school or the owners. It appears that this parent has a 'problem child' and didn't want to hear the truth about their child. And yes, we are coming back to Krambrooke for our 5th year in the fall.
krambrooke has horrible behavior issues with students, an unsafe environment unexperienced teachers, and expensive prices, there is no difference between a regular public school and this one, your child would have the same education at either one, i had problems with the owners many times before
This is my son's second year here and it seems like it it is getting better and better. We love this school. The teachers are qualified and caring. They are keeping up with the times by going to seminars and classes themselves. It is now an International Academy. It was also in Hour magazine for one of Metro Detroit's finest private school. My son is learning much more than any other private or public school at his age in the area. This school is ahead of the times in teaching. I didn't think a school like this existed till now.
My child has been a student at Krambrooke for 3 years. It took public school no time to ruin her self esteem and confidence. We are very happy that we enrolled here, she is now a happy and very confident person thanks to the supportive and caring teachers. Her grades have improved greatly and she now looks forward to coming to school.
My child has been attending Krambrooke for the last seven years. When se started she did not know how to write correcly and now she writes like a pro. There is no other school in Macomb County that comes close to having superior teachers and a friendly administrative staff. It is a blessing that we have this educational campus in our county.
We will be leaving the school this year. We are disappointed with the behavioral issues. Overall not very clean and neat. Temperature in classrooms is extremely warm. Very week music program.
We will be starting our fourth year at Krambrooke. Our children have done remarkably well and love going to school. When my oldest son was in public preschool, he would run & hide saying he didn't want to go to school. Since sending him to Krambrooke three years ago, he has never hid or cried that he didn't want to go to school. The Krambrooke teachers are well trained and educated. I especially love their technology program (and yes, I have a Masters in Computer Science, so I do know it is good). My youngest son started preschool at Krambrooke this year and he is now counting to 100, spelling and reading three letter words. My daughter, who is 6 and in 2nd grade, loves her teachers and the drama programs that are offered. Unlike one parent, I have not found discipline to be an issue in the classrooms.
We left this school last year due to numerous behavior problems in the classrooms. These behavior problems in the classrooms are very distracting to other children. Weak PE/Technology program. There was a lot of turnover of both students and staff in the time we were there.
I couldn't be happier. My child is in second grade here. I am very lucky finding this school. The education is first class. The teachers are excellent. They offer Spanish, computers, art, and drama. They also offer a lego league. My child learned more at this school in 3 months than he did at his last school in 2 years. I like that there is very small class sizes.
This school is absolutely fantastic! My daughter will be completing her first year here, and I am just amazed with her progress. The teachers work wonders with the children, truly tapping into their individual learning styles. Class sizes are small, so they get lots of indivualized attention, and the children are so accepting of each other. I didn't think such a great school existed, and we couldn't be happier.
We feel the school is a great find. Our Child loves to go to school/ loves her teachers. My friends in the public school are amazed at the level of work she is doing. The facility works with the students to achieve their potential. The enrichments have been getting better and better too (music/ Spanish/ karate etc). We also like the latchkey program offered. We feel our child is getting an excellent education from loving/ caring /enthusiastic /qualified teachers.
