My children started at Cunae when the youngest was in Pre-K and the eldest in Kindergarten, and I *cannot* say enough about this school. My husband and I had been searching for a school that recognized the importance not only of academics, but of outdoor playtime and creativity as well. To say that both of my kids have thrived at Cunae would be an understatement. From the very beginning the teachers monitored their social interactions carefully, making sure that while they were learning, they were also adapting to their new environment/peers.The teachers were also great at engaging the students. As a former teacher, I was impressed by the curriculum. Pre-pandemic, my kids were always coming home with new information to share about French, or Spanish, or science (plus they were always bringing home a ton of art). The small class sizes and the way they've handled online learning during the pandemic should be held up as an example to all schools. Highly highly recommended.

Cunae is an exceptional school. The teachers and management team go above and beyond to provide a nurturing environment and an enriching and engaging (IB) curriculum. The school is set in beautiful forest and priority is placed on outdoor play and discovery - alongside thorough and well-rounded education. There is a lovely school community of supportive and friendly families. We could not be happier with this school. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the school's response has been amazing. Within days, the team put the school online with a combination of online classes, allowing the kids to see their teacher and classmates every day, and a program of interesting content/activities to work through independently. The support from the staff (during an intensely stressful and busy time for them) has been incredible. Thank you so much, Cunae.

If you idealize for your child a school with excellent teachers, extremely low teacher-student ratios, a strong sense of community, a supportive administration and a focus on environmental issues and global awareness then Cunae would be a great school for your family. It was for ours!

Cunae is a school that not only educates students in all subjects but also teaches life lessons. It prepares the kids for the future by helping them figure out their strengths and capabilities. Each class incorporates independent thinking, discussing, creating and learning. The teachers are all top notch with years of experience. We are thrilled that we found Cunae!
