School Reviews

We moved from the west coast two years ago and were having a very hard time finding any school we liked. We liked the local public schools but figured out that the curriculum taught was basic at best. The gifted programs at all the local schools were severely lacking. Then we looked in and around the Windermere area for the best private schools and could not believe the lack of good choices. It took us one full year to happen upon Cranium Academy (two independent recommendations from friends). We were blown away by the curriculum, methodology and general family friendly feel of the place. After just over one year of having our kids attend Cranium we still can not believe such a great school is located so close to us. Everyday we pass by a much more expensive prep school in our area and are so glad there is a better, more affordable option that meets our families needs. PS Kudos for the new car drop off option. That makes the morning flow a lot easier for families who have too much other stuff going on in the mornings :-)

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
