School Reviews

5  
This school provides high-quality education, with a classical curriculum, rooted in European traditions. The students learn strong academic skills starting in very young grades, and the classroom size is small, which affords a robust system of support, with a more supportive approach to learning than a regular size classroom could allow for. Each child is known by each member of the learning community, and everyone cares about each other and about their outcomes as individuals, as well as at a group level. A very special place, where students reach their academic potential while learning moral values that will sustain them in their future journeys through college and adult life.
