School Reviews

We have been a part of the school community for 2 years and couldn't be more pleased with the individual attention and care that our son is getting there. I feel that the academics are developmentally appropriate and individually tailored, while at the same time rigorous. I especially appreciate the ways that STEAM initiatives are woven throughout the curriculum and the way that the school manages to maintain order and calm while still allowing the students to move around the classroom and collaborate with their teachers and fellow classmates throughout the day. The school is continuing to build and strengthen ties with Carlow University's Dept of Education and many exciting initiatives seem to be on the horizon, including expanded extracurricular offerings, a brand new gym facility, and an increasing focus on STEAM-focused project learning (mobile maker spaces throughout the school, etc). I think this school is a hidden gem, and it's not going to stay hidden for long.
