We love Kazoo School. My son had lead poisoning as a baby, and Kazoo School saved his education. SERIOUSLY. He hated school. He was behind. He was struggling to read. The entire staff, and the structure of parent evolvement, made all the difference. I Love Kazoo School. I recommended it to everyone. Knowing what a difference it made with my child, with a learning disability, I am confident in the amazing opportunity it can create for Any Child.

Kazoo School is an extraordinary school. The approach to learning and academics is designed to create a life long love of learning and to inspire creativity. The class sizes are small and there are ample opportunities to dig deep into a subject or activity. Most of all, Kazoo School is a community where children are cared for and parents work together to make the school experience great.

Excellent teachers, small class sizes, and a challenging, creative curriculum--including art, music, Spanish, and daily PE. Also offers a wide range of after-school activities. Teachers and students take full advantage of the adjacent Kleinstuck Nature Preserve for hands-on learning about natural sciences; several field trips a year give students additional exposure to the arts, environment, and community service. Kazoo students regularly are among the top in Michigan and national history and math competitions.
