This year we are looking forward to our daughter portray Queen Elizabeth II in the second grade living wax museum and seeing our fourth grader's creativity come alive for the invention convention. I am so grateful for the creative learning environment that challenges all aspects of learning and character building, especially in regards to public speaking. I strongly recommend taking a look during the school day so you can see the kids and teachers in action. Such an impressive and nurturing school!

Had good orientation trips that our daughter enjoyed and due to class sizes students get a better education that public school but the children are protected from the outside world, cloistered almost and lots of pressure is put on them to succeed. It is all about the school's reputation and protecting it if something goes wrong!!!! For us, it did.

We have truly enjoyed our experience at Applewild. Our son has grown academically in terms of furthering exploration in areas where he succeeds and strengthening areas of weakness. His teachers have taken individual time to help his love for science expand while helping him to overcome challenges and develop confidence and leadership skills. Each student is an essential part of the community as demonstrated through common time, lunch, buddy programs and the arts programs. The education a child receives is wholistic encompassing academics, values and personal growth throughout the school day and curriculum. Every teacher and administrator is compassionate and eager to teach. They have taken the time to become familiar with my son, our goals and our family. It has been a wonderful opportunity to be part of this community. Private school is an investment in your child's future. This has been my wisest investment yet.
