My daughter is just wrapping up her fourth year at Corlears and she is already excited about returning after Summer! The amount of work her class accomplished and variety of learning levels that were met throughout the year is truly amazing. Most impressive was how each classmate would demonstrate and celebrate their personal understanding of material using their individual and unique voices. The Corlears learning environment is 100% supportive of students and families and the administration`s goals are well thought through and open. The school exceeds our ideas of what learning at this age range should be and the kiddo is thriving.
