I have always loved this school. Went there when I was in elementary school and I am in college now. Still a fantastic school ! Lots of good things to learn and fun activities. I cant say much for the high school. Just beware when your child gets to that point.

My son attends preschool here, and I have to say, he has moved leaps and bounds since he started. The preschool teacher is always available for me to talk with about any of my concerns. I also like the fact when I'm trying to deal with a new "phase" of behavior at home, I know if I make a note, she too will follow my lead and keep me abreast on the behavior in class. I'm fully satisfied with this school, and the preschool teacher.

Excellant Staff. My daughter loves to go to school and she has so much more confidence since attending this school.

My daughter has been attending Larchmont School from kindergarten to fourth grade. She has always been extremely enthusiastic about attending Larchmont school and is motivated by a fantastic 'team' of teachers. They helped her in a positive way when she had trouble with reading and became frustrated. Now, she is in fourth grade and I can't believe how fast her K-4 education has gone while she has been a student in Larchmont. My son now attends Harrington, but was a student at Larchmont for 3rd-4th. He was welcomed into Larchmont school and really loved it there too. He got a great education also that allowed him to develop really great study skills. Both my daughter and my son received honor roll last year and I am greatful for the wonderful education they have provided to my two children.

If you plan on sending your daughter to pre-school, please look here first before wasting your money on overpriced Private Pre-schools that are usually looking only to criticise/complain about a child instead of helping him/her progress. This school has done wonders to my daughter and I am very proud of the improvement she has made, thanks to her teachers and the child study team, which all of which are extremely professional, helpful and caring, my daughter enjoys going to school and learning something new each day! So parents, when making a decision to send your child to a school, don't enroll them into kindergarten first, enroll them into the Pre-school program first! It's worth every tax dollar you spend.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
