School Reviews

We live in an excellent public school system, however, my child came from Montessori with such a strong foundation that Young World Day School's academics were the absolute best match for us. They welcomed us & supported us in the decision to advance our child a grade based on ability. We feel it was the best decision we could have ever made & continue to be extremely impressed with the family atmosphere, the flexibility for individual needs & the amazing approach to teaching children YWDS has. Their teachers are tops & have allowed our child to flourish & keep engaged with a love for learning!

My children received an excellent education, as 6th graders they went on to other private schools, and now are attending excellent universities. I attribute their academic success to the strong foundation formed at Young World Day School.
