I have watched my child grow socially and intellectually by leaps and bounds in her time at Grassroots. Her interactions with the staff and students at the school have helped to teach her personal responsibility through encouragement and guidance, rather than the more common approach of punitive discipline. The students and staff help instill a curiosity and desire to learn that is often snuffed out in contemporary schools.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
