Our son has been at Soundview now for 4 years - they're the perfect fit for our family. VERY community oriented both within the school in the way the children and their families interact as well as how the school interacts within the community they're located in. The children all receive a very solid academic education at Soundview but above and beyond that they're taught leadership, stewardship, and they're taught to focus on traits that will take them farther in life than even a top notch education will. The staff are all a well oiled machine, great communicators and work well as a team with the kids. They work together to really know each and every child and what their needs are. My son is thriving at Soundview and we are thrilled to call this school home.

Soundview School has provided my two children with an educational experience that, frankly, I wish I'd had as a kid. They are learning that having the "right" answer isn't the most important thing. Knowing how to find the best answer for you and explain your reasoning is far more important. Being confident in what you know is great, but it's even better when you can also listen and respect the differing perspectives of your classmates. Academics aren't individual skills to be taught but rather life skills to be applied. Based on what I've seen from other Soundview graduates, I know my children will do well when they move on to high school.
