School Notes

  • Soundview was founded in the belief that a student best develop academic skills, self-worth and leadership ability in small classes, where teachers know the learning style and interests of each individual. Therefore, classes average seven students at Soundview.Soundview's philosophy is that a non-competitive approach is the best way to equip students to succeed in the real world.  We articulate this conviction in every aspect of a student's educational experience.At Soundview, we believe in the value of each indivdiual.  Students learn that we listen to them and respond reasonably to them. They understand that they can control their education, based upon individual goals they set in consultation with advisors, administrators and family.

School Reviews

One of my kids was super unhappy in public school. He was bored, frustrated, overwhelmed and uninspired. Unlike my other child, public school was not a good fit. He had left public school for a bit in elementary and tried Montessori. There he flourished and could not wait to go to school. Upon returning to middle school we were back to square one. A lot of absences and a ton of escalating resentment about going to school. He was asking what age he could drop out. We had to make a change. We researched several school options and lucky for us found a dream-come-true right in our own backyard. Academically he`s more challenged than ever before and doing so well. He respects his teachers and thinks they are doing a great job. He feels they care about his success and that they are available to help him reach goals. He`s motivated to put in the effort and to engage in what he`s learning.Socially, the kids and faculty are like a warm community of caring and unique individuals (kids and adults). Everyone is welcomed and anything goes! In fact, the high schoolers encouraged my middle schooler (who has never really participated in group sports) to join their basketball team. They practiced with him at lunch and mentor him on the court. They are supportive when he plays even though he`s still new and cheer him on no matter what. Kids come from all over the place from Yonkers, NY to Greenwich, CT and even as far away as Shanghai and South Africa. Another wonderful thing about Soundview is the flexibility in adjusting the schedule if needed. My son has met with his guidance counselor a couple of times by mid-year to ask to switch to a higher class or drop one to add another. They are able to accommodate as needed (not having to wait until a quarter is over) but they do so by speaking with the teachers and students to make informed decisions. My son feels heard and that his opinions matter and can be factored into decision making.I am grateful beyond words to have found such a magical place. We all just want our child to be happy and thriving. And here, they can be both.
