I would not recommend North Wall Schools if you have a child with a severe food allergy. We trusted the claims that the school was nut free, while products that clearly stated they may contain peanuts were being used in his classroom. We understand that avoiding all allergen exposure can be very difficult but we assumed that common sense measures, such as reading labels would be taken. The staff did not seem to be aware of cross contamination issues and used contaminated items for class manipulatives. Just because an allergen isn t directly ingested does not mean that it will not trigger an anaphylactic reaction and even a skin reaction can be traumatic to an allergic child. (And just because it isn t intended to be eaten, a child may rub their eyes, nose, or put their fingers in their mouth which puts them at risk for a life threatening reaction.) We feel fortunate that we became aware of the situation before our son suffered a reaction. It was a very disappointing first experience with school for him and the administration was completely unapologetic.

My son and daughter both attend this school. The school is amazing. The school's philosophy cherishes that each child is unique and has special strengths. Heather in multi-age kindergarten is a wonderful, caring teacher, as are all the teachers. My son came home and asked me: "Guess how much my teacher Sue loves me? More than a circle that never ends." He was beaming. They have small class sizes, individualized attention, and an amazing faculty. The parents care and contribute to the school community. My husband and I are very particular, we are both in the legal field and have both been former prosecutors, so to say we are very careful about where we place our children is an understatement. I have never had one day of worry since we started attending North Wall. The director, Jan has been heading the school for about 30 years and Christie and Laura are both amazing. My son began having learning problems, they quickly picked up on it and alerted us. My daughter loves Amber. She actually cried one day when it wasn't a school day! I can't say enough about this school. They are very good at educating young children.

All expectations have been exceeded thus far. The staff and teachers are caring and attentive. I still am amazed with Laura and Christines (office) in knowing my sons name, class, current subjects being taught. Kristie and Sue sit with each child for individualized attention and tailored learning for each childs ability. Jan, owner, visits each class and child regularly and is onsite. Ratio is only 1:9 or less (depends on the year). My son has been there for two years and knows more spanish than me. I attended this school when I was little and loved it! 22 years later and the fun, diverse, small grouped activities have only improved. The play yard, tree house, nature/butterfly trail, gazebo, ample running room, toys and play structures is a major highlight of the school. They promote culture, diversity and acceptance. The children come from good, loving homes and have proper manners. The draw back is the price. Prek and k is affordable, but grades thereafter double in tuition costs. A bonus is they cater to the gifted and advanced. Enrolling your child would give the him/her the headstart and educational foundation to succeed in the years to come.

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.
