School Reviews

Sprout House is an amazing school. I myself attended there as a child and still remember it like yesterday. The environment encourages you to be creative and to have fun, but also incorporates politeness and the ability to learn and problem-solve. The teachers are amazing and attentive to every child''s needs. From a young age everyone learns to value each other and the world around them. There are fun games such as dress-up, pick-up sticks, and checkers, but there is also story time in which you learn about famous artists and ancient legends and myths. The children there are immediately encouraged to connect with nature and to empathize with others, as well as to obtain good hygiene and to eat healthily and enjoy learning and school as a whole. You also spend much of your time outdoors if the weather permits, and the field trips that the kids go on are creative, fun, and educational all at the same time. I made friends at Sprout House that i still know today, and i remember all the teachers like old friends. Sprout House prepares children for the real world, but makes sure to do it in an enjoyable and fun manner in which the students learn to stay positive and think logically, but still have fun and relax. Overall, I would give Sprout House easily five stars, and recommend it to anyone who wants their child to have a homey environment with a lot of positive encouragement and intellectual training, including reading, writing, music, grammar, science, math, history, and art.
