I want to give a shout out to The Calverton School! They prepared as soon as word of the virus hit the news. Our last day in the classroom was a Friday, and we started distance learning the very next Monday. They never missed a beat and continued to provide the quality education that they are known for! They have been there for their students both academically and for emotional support. If you are feeling uneasy about the quality of education that your children are getting during these uncertain times, I highly recommend that you look into The Calverton School. My only regret is that we didn't join them sooner!

I have two children at Calverton (in the lower school). Our family is new to the school but we love the small class size, the dedication of the teachers and staff, and the welcoming atmosphere. Our kids have been welcomed and we feel that they are getting one-one attention to excel both academically and socially.

We love Calverton! As a parent to a returning 6th grader and a new 9th grader, we couldn't be happier. The campus is beautiful; the athletic teams are a great mix of competition and responsibility and teamwork; the faculty is providing that closer one-on-one instruction we couldn't get in public schools. Discipline is taken seriously another aspect we were unhappy about in public schools. And our children are both challenged to work on projects that interest them. Calverton is a great place to send your child!

As a recent graduate, I have experienced everything this place has to offer. The tight-knit student body is unique. Students will never be lost in the shuffle because the teachers and students hold themselves and others accountable. Calverton was physically my home for four years, but will continue to be a place I seek comfort in for years to come. I was beyond prepared to further my education in college. Rather than just memorizing facts, the IB program taught me how to think. I learned how to learn here, making me a standout in my collegiate classes. Mr. Wright, the college counselor, dedicated his life to helping students find their dream schools. Mrs. Dice, the IB Psych and Music teacher, challenged me to dive deeper into my studies and think in a new way. Mrs. Brower, the IB Art teacher, is one of the kindest souls you will ever meet. She encouraged me to explore art outside of my comfort zone and watch over her students’ wellbeing as only a mother would.

We love the Calverton School and Mrs Candido!!! She has made 1st grade a breeze for our daughter. She has learned so much and we can't wait to see what she learns next.

As a grandparent, it is hard to have your six-year-old granddaughter halfway across the country, but Calverton School has helped so much. I try to stay in close touch with what she is doing, and I have come to believe that the Calverton academic program is unmatched. They have offered an individualized approach to her needs when her abilities exceeded her math level but needed a boost with reading. She loves school because of the enriched academic atmosphere, which even allowed her to compete meaningfully in the science fair, but also because of the caring staff. An exemplary example is Mrs. Haleigh Vance. She has been responsive to my questions, by phone, text, and emails, about everything from lunch to camp to scheduling.. Mrs. Vance truly cares about the students there, but also their families, and is sensitive to our needs. I give the highest recommendation to Calverton School and to Mrs. Vance in particular.

I just wanted to say what a great teacher Mr. Mallari has been to both my sons. Thoughtful, well prepared, easy to learn from, and always willing to help out if my kids had questions or didn't understand a concept. He is one of the best teachers I have dealt with while my sons have been there (since Pre-K 3!!!).

I''ve attended Calverton since second grade, and let me tell you, every time I get a chance to talk to someone about how great it is, I take it, enthusiastically. I tell everyone that''ll listen how helpful and attentive my teachers are, I tell them what the atmosphere is like, I tell them how I feel like it's my home away from home. It's not just a place to learn and hang with friends, it's a place I go to relax, to do fun things, to have new experiences. So much of my life is based in Calverton, and that is a gift I will never fail to be thankful for. -A junior, class of 2014
