My child started at Adelphi in Kindergarten and is now in the second grade. Overall, Adelphi has been a great experience for her and for us as a family. The most positive aspects include the small class sizes, the open communication between us and the teachers and administration and the excellent level of education to date. Every now and then I take our child's education for granted, but then I notice the level of discipline and the excitement for learning and I think much of this can be attributed to the school and its mission to education the "whole" child. I highly recommend this school and feel that it is a hidden gem within the community.
One of the best private schools around today -- wonderful school, wonderful people! The school really takes the time to work with the students and keeps them on track. I have 2 children in the school and have been there for years. My kids love the school and have come such a long way. I recommend the school very highly!
I transferred my son to the school this year for the 9th grade and I absolutely love the school. My good friend recommended the school and her 2 children attend there. I receive weekly phone calls, my son is a part of so many clubs, and the level of care and instruction is incredible! I love the Head of School - she is so warm and caring and really is on top of everything. I would recommend this school to everyone!
Kudos to Adelphi for their beautiful presentation at the Summer Stroll last week. Daniel Rodriguez and Marla Kavanaugh performed and promoted their new program at Adelphi. The performance and set-up was so elegant. Fabulous job!!!!
I just recently took a tour of the school and I was so impressed. The building was beautiful and the Admissions Director spent so much time with me. All of my questions were answered and I felt comfortable, welcomed and well informed. I will be enrolling my child for September.
Not enough people know about the school and it is a shame. The school is a great school. My son has been attending for the last 4 years and I couldn't ask for more communication, support and concern. The school truly cares about its students and its families. I came across this site and am heartbroken to see any negative comments. I have had nothing but positive experiences.
I agree that most of the positive comments must have been written by the school administration which is notorious for its deceiving practices. It is not surprising that the school has such a tremendous turnover of both the stuff and the students. For us it was the worst life experience ever and resulted in my first negative review -- I always try to look at the brighter side of things; however, with Adelphi, the only bright side was when my child left the school... He has attended three other schools since then, including one public, and has been a happy and confident 95% grade student in all of them, winning all the math and spelling bee competitions, while at Adelphi their "genius" teachers tried to tell me he had "learning disabilities" (apparently the school gets funding from the city for each student they label so). I thank God that experience is over!
The scholastic excellence, superior educators, and lifetime friends are what we will remember most about our Adelphi days. We are so grateful to have had this experience.
Really? New teachers and new students this late in the year? The worst school year of my Childs life!! My child started the school year academically ahead, happy and social. I now have an anxious, unhappy child well behind in academics as compared to other middle school students. The damage done has been a million times worse than the small fortune we invested. No wonder students and teachers disappear overnight with no explanation.
this is an ideal school for those seeking a well rounded education. it has a caring faculty and administration. It caters to the individual needs of students.. it has a very safe environment.. Most of all it has a spirit which motivates students to learn..My children look forward to going to school.
Positive reviews on this school is by far is administrations clean up job! The school can not compete with surrounding schools or any Great school. How can they if they are not well funded! They will take who evvvvver they can at this point to stay afloat. So do not get fooled and groomed by their sales/advertisement!!! My tuition did not benefit my kids. They did not do anything out of the ordinary for my kids. The school is very closed door policy/non parent involvement. If this school is your last or only option, consider your tuition a big donation for this school to make it by again. "Administration clean up reviews" are shameless!
Adelphi Academy is a excellent school. My daughter has attended the school since the 4 th grade , she is happy and doing well.
Adelphi is a wonderful school. The class size is small, the teachers work very hard, and my child is happy and learning!!! What a great place!
Fabulous school and wonderful events! I just attended the Annual Holiday Brunch and I could not believe how well put together the event was. The room was beautiful and the students in the play were amazing! Great job! I was so impressed with how well my 6 year old performed!!
My son was struggling in public school. The teachers didn't care and they wouldn't help him. They said he was below grade level and was not meeting standards. Since enrolling at Adelphi in September, my son has jumped up 2 reading levels and is now on grade level. Public schools are a disgrace and I am so grateful that I found Adelphi. Everything they told me in my admissions interview was true. There is not one promise that they didn't keep. I love Adelphi and it is a great place for a child to grow up in. I can't say enough enough positive things!
My children's Catholic school closed in June and I enrolled my children at Adephi in September. I ams so pleased with the school, the teachers, the level of education, and the weekly communication. Adelphi is a wonderful place and I would recommend it to anyone! I look forward to my children continuing at Adelphi for many years to come.
Fantastic school and worth every penny! A wonderful and caring place for parents and kids!
Adelphi is a great school. It is everything that a parent could hope for. The teachers are in constant communication with the parents, the school is constantly hosting events for the students, and the community involvement and service for teh stduents to participate is incredible! I am so pleased.
Adelphi is a great school. I am so pleased with the attention (due to the small class size) my daughter receives in class. The teachers call me every week to let me know what is going on and my daughter is so happy to be there. I am so glad I transferred her to Adelphi this year - I wish I had done it sooner - the public school system is a disgrace.
