We had wonderful summer!! This school is safe, very good for kids and parents. They read a lot of books and after reading a book, They help to worksheet well. The science program is so good and I exercise a lot. My children participated in the summer camp for the third time.

Really enjoyed sending my daughter to the Ability school. The whole pandemic, really caused my daughter to be behind in her academics. Thankfully, I`m just a few weeks during the summer with Ability`s teachers and staff, my daughter gained confidence, friends, & knowledge to reach her level for school. I Will recommend to future students and will attend for further summers ahead

My family has moved to the area just so our daughter could attend Ability School. The curriculum and methods of teaching used by this school are superb. My daughter (9) loves her school. She is very independent in her studies and is thriving in her environment. The teachers are very carrying and are very much involved in the progress of each student. I couldn`t be happier about our choice. If you want your child to really be able to apply what he/she has learned and not just pass a test for a grade, this is a school for you. -RA

I can not recommend enough the wonderful program offered at Ability School. I am not aware of any other program where a child walks away with as much confidence in their ability to learn and study any subject. My daughter started at 3 1/2 and was reading by 4. She loves school! I would recommend Ability School to any parent who want a more personalized education for their child.
