Both of our children have been attending this Chesterbrook location for over a year now and we have been very happy with the professionalism of the staff and the sense of community among teachers and parents. Both our children are exposed to learning activties that they never would have in public school. Field trips, nature walks, and recess (yes, recess still exists!) are all part of the curriculum. Our kids are very happy here, and learning a great deal! It's school the way school used to be: indivdualized learning and a sense of community.
My 4 year old son had a hard time adjusting because we just moved from another state and he was the new kid in school, however all the teachers have bended over backwards to make him feel welcome. Everyone is very professional and I would recommend this school to any parent.
I have been very disappointed with the level of professionalism. The art,music, and PE teacher was injured in December and only one PE teacher has been hired in March to replace her. Students have been subjected to a substitute each week to teach art and music.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
