Transfiguration has always been a very nurturing environment to my children, in addition to being one of the finest elementary schools in the tri-state area. Their academic record speaks for itself. sixty years and going strong!

This school is worth every penny of tuition. The teachers and administration or top notch and the education that my children are receiving rivals any public or private school in the area. Test scores are consistently excellent and the school has a caring and nurturing feeling about it. I know my children are safe and well care for.

We do a lot more than play kickball in gym. I learned how to play Volleyball and Basketball and Hockey. The bottomline is that we get exercise and it is fun. The academic work is hard but the teacher's challenge us to reach our potential.

In my opinion they can have a better gym organizer. The children only play kickball. Academic wise I'm not sure if my son is beig challenged. It's not a bad school but, there are some things they can work on.

Transfiguration School's after school enrichment program is outstanding! There is so much to offer. Some classes include ceramics, soccer, basketball clinic, drama, guitar,mock trial, painting and jewelry making. It is comforting to know our children's afternoons are being enriched by these classes.

The quality of the academic program is excellent. The children are challenged, and most exceed their expectations, but most importantly, the school provides a safe environment. Parent involvement is encouraged, and the staff is always available. The staff is extrodinary. We are lucky to have them. They are a group of professionals who take their mission serious, in that they not only provide quality education to our children, but they are sincere, caring teachers.

The academic program is second to none. The school graduates Regis scholars regularly. It has all the bells, whistles and resources of any high quality private school. The teachers and administration is caring, involved and highly skilled. There is a strong sense of unity and community. Parents are very involved. I am grateful for the experience. It was the best environment for children

Transfiguration School is a great alternative to the public schools and expensive private schools in the Westchester area. Students are given a strong academic foundation adhering to the New York State learning standards. Class sizes are large enough to provide ample social opportunities but small enough to provide the most suitable learning environment. The school offers after school care opportunities, enrichment programs and sports programs in addition to a great education. The teachers and administrator are highly trained and educated professionals. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Parent involvement is encouraged. The school, its academic offerings, extracurricular offerings and environment offers a tremendous amount of value for the money.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
