School Reviews

We love Far Brook! Engaging academics, caring faculty and staff, inclusive community, social/emotional support for students, and thoughtful curriculum/program with milestones and leadership opportunities as the kids mature. Teachers see, understand and know our children as students and as individual people, helping them understand their strengths and weaknesses and how to advocate for themselves.
