My daughter started 2nd grade at Germanshire coming from- supposely a pretigeous private school where she was so unhappy and did not like going to school. Now that she is at Germanshire she is happy and is sure of herself and her friends. The teachers and staff are nice and very supportive.

As a teacher and a parent at this school, I can honestly say that Germanshire is wonderful. My children are in Kindergarten and Preschool and they love going to school. My son in Kindergarten has recently graduated and he is reading beautifully all thanks to the wonderful program and dedication of the teachers. We moved here this year from Delaware and he did not even know his letters when he entered in the fall. Now, he is reading books. I also love working here. It is the first school that I have worked in that I actually enjoy the atmosphere. I highly reccommend this school.
