The Cambridge School is by far the best school that my 5th grader has attended. Not only do the students have a passion for learning but the teachers have a passion for teaching, which I feel is hard to come by these days. My 5th grader is not only learning Latin and Mandarin, but what he is learning in other subjects such as history and math is not even comparable to the public schools in this area. The Cambridge School is a true blessing.
