This is my daughter's first year at Alcott. She transferred from a different school, and I was a little apprehensive because we loved her old school, but I can say we are very happy with our choice. Alcott is great, the staff and students and I am very impressed with their academic accomplishments. I would definitely recommend Alcott to other families.

This is my daughter's first year at Alcott. Her teacher is wonderful and the staff is very polite. My daughter also sees the school speech pathologist for her speech delay and I am very happy with the progress my daughter is making. So far I am very pleased with Alcott and will be sending my daughter back next year.

Alcott is a small school, offering a more personal level learning environment, where kids and teachers interact more, which I like.

Alcott school is great. We transferred to Alcott when we moved. Alcott got my oldest son on track with school. They understood that he had ADHD and helped him get things worked out. He is now in high school and being successful. Two of my children still go there. All the teachers are great and really care about the kids. They support the kids in and out of school. I could not ask for a better school for my kids to go to.

This was a great neighborhood school years ago, however it has declined terribly. Some Teachers talk like they are from the Ghetto and are not the caring, loving, respectful Teachers that we all knew and loved. Swearing, Stealing, Bullying is rampant, and although they say they dont tolerate it, they do. This school did nothing for my Son except belittle him and pushed down what little self esteem he had. Do your homework before deciding on this school. Dont just review comments, but actually talk to parents and the Teachers. Interview them as though you were applying for a job. These people are going to be spending the entire day with your child. Your children deserve respect, just as the Teachers/Office Staff demand it. They should be just as mindful to your Children.

Had my son in school for Pre-Kindergarten. Elderly teacher yelled at kids, and resisted involvement from parents inside classroom. Raised issues with Principal who was no help and did not want to get involved. Hired outside psychologist from Chilldren's hospital who observed class and said we needed to get our child out ASAP. If you care about your kids, get them out of Alcott.

We switched to Alcott from St. Gregory the Great. They have been wonderful with my sons since. JB loves school and they don't treat him like he's stupid. E, has a great time meeting new people. The staff are wonderful. They actually follow the instructions and call me at work. Great School!!!!!

Had some minor bullying of very young children. The principal wanted to give us the phone number of the other parents who we didn't know, instead of him taking some action or talking to them. Teachers seemed good, overall an O.K. school.

The quality of the academic programs are amazing. I couldn't explain it in words. The music, art and sports are tramendous. I am not a parent but I used to go to that school. It's an amazing school. I love it.
