We couldn't BR any happier than we are with Tilden as a school for our two boys. Tilden has brought out the best in our kids and has turned them into engaged learners. What an incredible school and community. The best education value in the city!

It's not an exaggeration to say we love Tilden. Academics are the primary focus, and with the spectacularly low student teacher ratio every student is understood and challenged according to their individual rate of progress. Music, art, Spanish, PE and other disciplines are woven into the core day many times a week. The teachers are incredibly talented, the leadership is stellar, and the entire school is thoughtfully organized. But the best part of Tilden's program may be the social learning that happens at recess. There are always several teachers on hand to guide students in play and social development, issue resolution and confidence building. Well worth the investment.

Amazing school filled with rock-star teachers and a tight-knit community of parents. Principal and 2nd/3rd grade teacher Whitney loves the children, knows them all by name and all of the families. Highly recommend this school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
