School Reviews

  • Recommended September 09, 2014 - As a former parent at The Schenck School, I can honestly say that the two years my children spent at Schenck did more for their education than any years before or since. They graduated with honors from a well-known prep school and are attending excellent colleges now. As dyslexic students, they will always have to work a little harder, but they''ve achieved all that their classmates have and more. They are lovely individuals. Thank you Schenck! - Posted by Parent
