School Reviews

As I graduate from high school I look back at the wonderful memories and the great start I had in my first school, Good Beginnings School. Whether we were reading, coloring, conducting "science experiments", or doing other unique and creative activities, my preschool and kindergarten years were full of fun!I cannot thank the entire Good Beginnings Staff enough for giving my learning and education such a positive start. Without such a wonderful foundation and the loving group of staff who constantly motivated me, I could not have gotten to where I am today. Good Beginnings School created such a fun environment, where I learnt so much, that I truly enjoyed going to school and learning.As I head off to UVA this fall to study Biomedical Engineering, I credit them for instilling in me the passion to learn new things and to be curious.Shirali NigamThomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology Class of 2016
