We are currently in our seventh year at Harley. There is no greater investment we could make in our children's lives. We have a fourth grader and an eighth grader. Every day I can see the differences that Harley makes in our children. Just the leadership qualities being instilled in them alone are amazing. We are not wealthy people by any standards, we are not alone in that aspect of Harley parents. We are just people who believe in investing in a superior quality education for our children that will make well adjusted people throughout their lives.

The school has been a joy and a wonderful resource for my son. He is blossoming into a curious and engaged preschooler. It's an investment, certainly, but an investment in something priceless. We hope to stay with Harley for many years to come.

Harley provides the best education in town. Well worth the tuition. One visit and you will feel the warmth and community that is present. The kids have so many opportunities. Academics are rigorous, leadership is solid and visionary, students are happy. Even in these tough economic times, Harley parents have stayed at the school and found it worth it, beyond expectation. We happily make sacrifices to give our two children the best around. In the wake of so many local school closings and enrollment declines, Harley's enrollment is still at the top.

Harley is a little jewel of a school community! Our child is thriving and blossoming at Harley. Each child is valued and respected and appreciated for his or her uniqueness. Teachers understand that each child learns differently and they work diligently to make sure each child meets success. Each child is treated as gifted and talented. Its imaginative curriculum far surpasses what the public schools offer for children in the "gifted and talented" program. The bar is set high-- the mantra is to work hard-- do your best-- and bring your best self to school every day. While it is expensive, it is worth the sacrifice our family makes every year to keep our child enrolled at this outstanding school.

My daughter attended Harley for 15 years. It was a superior education in every way. Harley offers an authentic educational process that teaches depth rather than breadth and is intellectually demanding; its emphasis on creative problem-solving is a way of life at this wonderful school; learning about and practicing compassion is an intentional part of the curriculum; and the arts program is unrivaled in western NY. Where else do you get glass-blowing and nboat building? The faculty is well-educated--- intellectually curious--- open-minded-- friendly--- fun--- and zany!

My son entered Harley at Gr. 8, and is now a junior in college working on an engineering degree. He was very well prepared to attend his first choice college, earning many credits through Advanced Placement courses at Harley. This wonderful school has given him confidence and a love of learning that will be life long. Thank you, Harley!

A very caring environment. Strong academics and celebration of diversity make it a great school. I have two children, who are very different. Both have excelled and grown in multiple positive ways. Highly recommend.

I've gone to Harley for a couple of years now. It is amazing! Everyone is nice, friendly, and supportive. The classes are challenging and harder, but if you need help, you can always get it. The school teaches you to be independent too, so you get more freedom and are more trusted. It's like having a second family, the teachers and classmates are always open and helpful. This has to be one of the best schools out there!

Excellent facility with caring teachers and small class size. Family-like atmosphere especially for the nursery school. Middle school starts at 5th grade which is a little awkward. Goes through high school; very new middle and upper school facility with new library and new computer center. Indoor pool, indoor tennis, and after-school programs make this a wonderful place to be.
