School Reviews

I have watched my child grow socially and intellectually by leaps and bounds in her time at Grassroots. Her interactions with the staff and students at the school have helped to teach her personal responsibility through encouragement and guidance, rather than the more common approach of punitive discipline. The students and staff help instill a curiosity and desire to learn that is often snuffed out in contemporary schools.
