Teacher Jennifer was phenomenal with my daughter. Patient, caring, and strict. Thank you for doing a great job.

This rating applied to the pre-K program, as I have no knowledge of the other campus. The principal is the best educator I have ever know, and I come from a family of educators. She knows every student by name, and is very approachable. When we had a problem, the principal personally looked into it to help fix it. She balance of strictness and compassion. The teachers follow the principals lead in striking an excellent balance between discipline and compassion. They are dedicated and generous people who genuinely love their work. Finally, the pre-K is excellent at developing the sense of community.

I am surprised by the harsh reviews of this school, it is great. The day is long and structured, however, the children learn so much they are well ahead of their peers in public school. They encourage and expect parental participation. It's very family-centered. It's a wonderful alternative to a G&T program. They offer a nice balance of academics and extra curricular programs including art, yoga, mandarin, Chinese culture, piano, dance, swimming. It is really a great value, in particular for working parents, who require after school care. They even have a Lego League for older children. Their summer program is one of the best values in the city. I look forward to my child continuing to thrive here.

As a parent, you'll find a lot of things to like about this school. The teachers are dedicated and the quality of the academic education is high. You'll probably question that balance between work and play and you won't necessarily welcome the stress of trying to get 4 and 5 year old children to do an hour of homework every night (particularly after a 9 hour day at school.) Do kids flourish under these conditions? The real problem with this school will become apparent when you have an issue which merits being raised with the principal in charge of pre-K. Parents leave her office confused and upset and feel they don't have a voice (although they will be told that they do - "my door is always open" is a typical phrase). If you find yourself in that situation, the answer is simple: stop responding to the endless fundraising requests that the school sends you. If enough people do this, then you will certainly have a voice. When the principal starts to treat parents and teachers with the respect that they deserve, then this school will really start to shine.

teachers can be very kind, but the principles can be really harsh and hurt the children and make them cry! and it's a disrespect. child abuse.
