A gem of a school! Our child is happy and thriving. We feel she is in a safe environment where curiosity is encouraged and learning feels organic by design.The administration is knowledgeable, nurturing, and very hands-on. They work with families to meet each child's needs. The new Head of School is a great leader with an open door policy who continues to cultivate an environment of inclusivity, respect, and love of learning. Teachers are encouraged and given autonomy to teach the curriculum using their talents. Weekly assemblies further strengthen community bonds and parent involvement. Best kept secret on the Upper Westside!
