My Daughter goes to Tara Redwood and she is thriving. We tried public school but with big class sizes and a generic approach to teaching she wasn't doing well. We put her in Tara and she is doing so much better. Individual learning programs, small classrooms and lots of fun activities have made her want to come to school and excited for the day. She also loves the yoga and music program.

My daughter of 8 goes to this school and since she began studying here, her level of communication and sharing has improved drastically. She is also so informed on world geography and the cultures of our planet. Her reading anxiety has pretty much completely decreased. In one year, she has learned to read musical notes and play the violin too. The community of this school is very kind and prompt to help each other out, which for a working parent, this is a major plus. I highly recommend Tara Redwood School and its innovative curriculum.
