Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a community member
The small class size certainly helps give the teachers the ability to get to know each student in depth and this shows. They are quick to reach out with news - good, bad, and antidotal.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a community member
There is homework every night with varying levels of difficulty. Assignments seems to be always engaging and relevant to what the kids are learning.


Develops character: Strongly agree

There is a great focus on respect - the students respect for each other and their teachers, respect for art, respect for differences, all part of the curriculum and every school day from start to finish.

My son has had a fantastic experience at Ballet Tech and is hoping to continue through high school. At first, he was especially appreciative of how much ballet helped him excel in sports (he is now on 3 high level competitive teams in 3 different sports). Over the past few years, he has developed a true love for dance which has been remarkable to see. It is also very clear that the discipline of ballet has helped with his academics. The school's program is challenging and comprehensive with plenty of support when needed from the teachers and especially the excellent principal, Mr. O'Neill. We could not be happier with our experience with this tiny, warm, and wonderful school community.

this is the worst school ever. My daughter went to this school and when i put her in a prep school, she was failng. this school really needs to improve on academics. Im glad i got my daughter into a prep school earlly enough or she would have failed. This school is horrible.

I loved all 5 years of being a student at Ballet Tech. I started off in the 4th grade with little knowledge of classical ballet and honestly, a questionable amount of interest in the area. I graduated last year loving the art and the training I received here helped me with my decision to continue dancing in high school. It's also been amazing seeing how much the school improved and evolved in the time I was there, with some traditions each year and some newly introduced ideas and activities as well. The teachers really get to know and engage with each of the students, so that they are able to further focus on their strengths and help the students to grow academically, artistically, and personally. The school is incredibly unique and I haven't heard of one that can compare to its environment and what it has to offer. I will never regret attending this school and would definitely recommend it to anyone who would even consider trying out dance as a hobby.

A very unique and wonderful school! My daughter loves it so much she does not want to leave the school. She enjoys it thoroughly. The teachers, staffs, and PTA executive board are all wonderful! A very family oriented environment. They always welcome you. I love that she can excel both academically and artistically at the same time. As a parent I am very satisfied.

This school has a family atmosphere between the kids in all grades and the faculty and staff. Academically the School achieves more than any other middle school I know.
