School Reviews

As a young girl I dreamed of one day having a beautiful family. Now in my late 30?'s, I have realized this dream. Although my daydreams never comprehend the stresses of raising 3 young children, in conjunction with our ambitious careers, I am reminded of my blissful picture in association with my experience as a parent at Delphi Santa Monica. Delphi have been an integral partner in the welfare of not only my children, but my husband and I. Delphi, in every facet, is the school I would build if I was inclined to founder one. Delphi is family and I am incredibly grateful for finding this community which has made parenting our precious ones joyful, stress-free, progressive and tailored. Without sounding too over the top, Delphi is quite literally the school of my dreams.

This school has offered an exceptional PreK and Elementary program for my two children. Besides an amazing educational foundation in reading, handwriting and math, they offer art, music, performing arts and field trips. I would highly recommend!
