The care and development of one's child are among the most sacred responsibilities to which a parent can entrust others. Enrolling our son in his new school probably made us feel more vulnerable than him! From day one, our experience with the staff at Albrook, especially his teachers and aftercare aids, has only made us feel comfortable with our decision. From our regular amazement at his pace of learning to his obvious enthusiasm when talking about his classmates and teachers, we're so appreciative of his time at the school and look forward to many more smiles in the future. Thank you, Albrook!

Albrook summer camp has been a wonderful experience for my children. They woke up every day excited to attend camp. They had lots of fun, learned to swim, and kept up their academic skills by doing fun activities. The team is very attentive to the children and their needs. It is so very comforting to know our children are so well cared for at camp during the summer!

My husband and his sister are alumnae of Albrook, and now my children are loving their time there! They all started in Stepping Stones at 18 months old. The eldest is now going into her second year of lower elementary school. The ladies who run this school have been here for a generation. Their educational techniques and communication are finely tuned. They handled the first year of the pandemic without a single missed day of school. Their kindness and guidance have helped us through so many tough stages of early parenting. We are so grateful to have them in our lives. If you`re on the fence, please let this review push you over! Albrook is the right place!

Albrook is a fantastic school that suits my daughter perfectly, she was made to feel welcome from the first day and has thrived ever since. My son also attended camp there this summer and despite not knowing anyone, he had a wonderful time and learned to swim! Wonderful, inclusive, and caring environment.

Our daughter has been a student here since 2009 and couldn't be happier with our choice. We are the typical parent who researches/analyzes to no end, to find the ''perfect'' fit for our family. The one word that comes to mind with Albrook is nurturing....and trust me, it is very difficult to find teachers/staff who genuinely care about each child and their growth both academically and emotional maturity. The teachers are fantastic! Academically...your child will come out so prepared and so far ahead of their peers. Albrook is a magnet school for some of the other top private schools for the upper elementary/middle school programs. For us, we are thrilled with the way our daughter has matured over the years and are very grateful for all they have done.
