Initially, this school strikes you as being something different or special but coming in during school hours, I find my youngest (VPK-aged) watching TV... she could do that at home. My kids do a lot of arts and crafts, which is great, but if you consider the amount of money you pay for it, maybe it suddenly is not so great. Overall, it's a lot like some of these projects. Glittery at first, but after a while, you're wishing there was more than some sparkles in your carpet.

We can not believe there is such a wonderful school in our community. The advanced education my daughter has received has been outstanding. I wish I had known about Cranium Academy for my older child too. He basically does the same level stuff she is doing and he is 2 years ahead of her. I really appreciate the way they integrate critical thinking into the arts, sciences and math programs. We can not thank you enough for the educational exposure you are giving our girl.
