School Reviews

  • Recommended October 08, 2013 - Both of my children attended Cambridge Academy from three years of age until 7th grade. Afterwards they both were admitted to highly competitive private schools based on the academic preparation they received at Cambridge Academy. Their friends that they made at Cambridge are also excelling in various magnet and gifted programs in other public school systems as well and all of them are quick to say their preparation at Cambridge made it possible. I love that while the curriculum is challenging it is done very developmentally appropriate my children loved going to school and being challenged and never wanted to miss a day. They still give credit to Cambridge for the success in school they are enjoying today. In addition to their academics being strong I love even more that their moral characters and conduct are solid which is something that is stressed and expected at Cambridge. - Posted by Parent
