I just graduated from the Campus School after 7 amazing years there and I have to say, it was the best possible choice for me and my sister. The small class and school size makes for a wonderful environment to grow up in, and by sixth grade, the bonds I'd made with my entire class were immeasurably strong. Looking back, I realize that each and every one of my teachers has been an immensely kind and talented mentor, especially in fifth and sixth grade. This is an amazing school filled with brilliant people and incredible programs.

The school doesn't live up to its marketing messaging and by 5th and 6th grades most of the kids we know, including are own, have become rather bored with the school's not-very-challenging curriculum. Overall, the education received does not come close to being worth the cost.

From the moment I walked into the Campus School, I knew it was the right place for my kids. The staff and faculty are so warm and friendly. The students here learn to be critical thinkers and great problem-solvers. The best part is that my kids will leave here in 6th grade with a passion for learning.
