My daughter started at Boxwood in mid-February 2016 and it has been amazing to watch her growth in a few short months. It is refreshing that they reinforce our core values of leadership, independent thinking, helpfulness, teamwork and pride that we try to instill at home. She has also learned to help around the house and yard with confidence. We were also impressed when she came home with a prayer to bless our meals. She LOVES the staff at Boxwood! To be fair, I was nervous about the reviews I had read prior to my visit, however I can confirm that the 94+ year old retired directress is very hands-off now since retiring in Fall 2015. She does greet the children if the pass in the hall, but does not interact with the children or parents further. I did approach her and had a long (and pleasant) conversation with her and she was lovely to me and I can see that she cares about the level of education and behaviors she wants to see instilled in the children who attend the school as it is a reflection of her life's work and she is proud of the results she and her family have yielded over the years. That said, you will likely interact most with the new Directress, Ms. Paula, who has been there for decades and is wonderful, loves the children and wants the best for them too.
My children love boxwood school and have learned so much since starting there this past summer. The children are taught using the montessori method, which is ideal for most children and encourages independence. The owner/headmistress is 94-ish and has high expectations for her students. Her methods are firm but fair and she pushes children to meet their own potential. The other teachers are the school are wonderful and I love that the ratio of students to teachers is quiet low.

With so much uncertainty in the world today and a pandemic further confounding our lives, it's reasonable for parents to want to protect their children whenever and wherever possible? But overprotecting or bubble-wrapping? Well, that's another matter.

Why Small Class Sizes Work
You want your child to receive plenty of individual attention. That's one of the reasons most parents send their children to private school.
