School Reviews

Our daughter has been a student here since 2009 and couldn''t be happier with our choice. We are the typical parent who researches/analyzes to no end, to find the ''perfect'' fit for our family. The one word that comes to mind with Albrook is nurturing....and trust me, it is very difficult to find teachers/staff who genuinely care about each child and their growth both academically and emotional maturity. The teachers are fantastic! Academically...your child will come out so prepared and so far ahead of their peers. Albrook is a magnet school for some of the other top private schools for the upper elementary/middle school programs. For us, we are thrilled with the way our daughter has matured over the years and are very grateful for all they have done.
