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.
This Catholic elementary school is head and shoulders above the others in the Westchester area. Their academics are strong and adhere to NYS standards. Students score high consistently. the school has music, art, foreign language, sports program and well equipped computer lab.
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.
