School Reviews

My son has been attending Magic Apple since 1st grade. He just "graduated" from 6th grade. Without the care, love and support of Fran, Jan and all of the wonderful teachers, I do not know how my son and I would have made it through these years. I am so grateful and appreciative of their contributions to our family.

My 12 year old daughter just "graduated" from Magic Apple after 7 years (first at Apple Afterschool K-1st) of unbelievable care and excellent educational enrichment! I have seen her bloosom under the loving, supportive, creative, fun, funny, kind, challenging, imaginative care of Jan and Fran. I truly believe that our daughter would be amazing...but having been at Magic has that much more allowed her to thrive and find her own unique style. Dance, science, cooking, and so much more! Her speech in front of hundreds of people commending Jan and Fran are truly the best recommendation one could give...wish I could share it here! Thankfully her brother has 3 more years in their wonderful program!

I cannot recommend Magic Apple enough! Jan and Fran create a stimulating , fun, educational, kind, loving community with many opportunities for leadership for the students. I can honestly say my Grandson learned lifelong lessons of love, kindness, helpfulness, empathy , leadership and how to be a good person! He considers Jan and Fran his second parents and goes back to visit even though he is a busy high school Junior . They were always caring, positive and loving. If you have the opportunity, send your child to Magic Apple. You and your child will be sooooo happy you did!!!!
