My husband and I arrived here with our three children in the summer of 2011 from Belgium. Our children have been going to Lyceum Kennedy since then. My two youngest are in Ardsley and recently, my daughter transitioned to the Lyceum Kennedy Manhattan campus for middle school and is thriving. I'm so glad I found Lyceum Kennedy in Ardsley when we moved here. It's been a fantastic school for our family. Because it's a small school, it feels like a big family. Moving from one country to another for a child is never easy. Luckily, at this campus, my children felt at home within days! I also appreciate the small teacher/student ratio (1 to 5), which has allowed a personalized learning experience for each of my children. And I've enjoyed having the chance to meet so many diverse families the school is very multicultural: some Americans, some expats from around the world (many United Nations families) international families employed by local employers and plenty of bicultural families.

We have been thrilled with Lyceum Kennedy. While my family is not French-speaking, we found that the environment at LK is warm and open to everyone. We feel so lucky to have found Lyceum Kennedy. Our five year old absolutely loves it! And his French is remarkable considering that it is only his second year at the school.

A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
If you have a child who sings, you might want to consider a choir school. In the United States, most of these schools are day schools.
We look at several ways you can use to search for private schools. Whether you are beginning the search process for a school for your child or just want to find out more about particular schools, we offer some tips and tricks to make searching more efficient.
