Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school offers opportunities to develop strong character. The community outreach program allows the children to give back to the community.



- a
Our experience with Grey Nun Academy has been overwhelmingly positive. We trust the leadership. We value the teachers. And we love the friendships we have made. Our children have excelled and gained tremendous confidence.


Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
We have developed some strong friendships with other parents at GNA and are loyal to our friends. However, we believe that "bullying" can take many forms. My spouse and I feel that there are definitely parent cliques. That said, we have formed our own niche with some very wonderful like-minded parents.

Effective school leaders: Neutral


- a
We are really neutral about the effectiveness of the leadership at this school.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
For the most part the teachers are effective. However, when we recently visited a private school in New Jersey we were amazed at the innovative curriculum and skill of the teachers. That said, GNA teachers are for most part really good people and like family.




- a
Our family started five years ago in preschool. We made some really good friends at GNA. All in all the experience has been pretty good and we would rate it as average. Since our children have never attended another school we don't believe that we personally have a basis to compare our experience here at GNA with more expensive schools. However, we were really, really impressed during recent tours and classroom visits of two private schools in New Jersey with higher tuition.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Since the new Head of School started 2 years ago, she does not stand for bullying of any kind. She is an involved leader who is not afraid to confront the issue. It doesn't really seem to be an issue there at all though.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
They are focused on delivering Learning Support Services (there is a whole section on their website about what they offer). My kids don't need these services, but plenty do, so it's good to know they are there if you need them.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
New Head of School is amazing! She's been there about 2-3 years now, and what a difference! She is a gift to the school. She listens to parents, and has her finger on the pulse of what works in education. You can tell she really loves what she does, and that she's very smart, and committed to the school.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Love the influence of volunteerism that is introduced from the youngest of grades. Kids are encouraged to be involved and help others. The older students are so sweet and helpful to the younger students (who look up to them). It's just such a nice place for kids to be. No stress at school with a dual focus on strong academics + helping others.
