Although my children benefited from many facets of the school during their years at Geneva School, by far the BEST thing about the school is the teachers. They love their students, they delight in imparting lessons, and they embody their own lifelong quest for learning. I could not be more excited that the school is starting a high school. This is great news for NYC families!

As a parent of two young students (Lower School) at Geneva School, I cannot say enough about the quality of education they are receiving. Daily, I am in awe of the new things they learn and discover, and experience at school. They are already challenging ME with their math facts, chess skills, French language skills, and knowledge of grammar, music, art, and the Bible. They are clearly growing academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Our kids have wildly different personalities and strengths and this has been an excellent fit for both of them. The support and partnership we have felt from the faculty, staff, administration, and other parents have been an integral part of our experience at the School. The School has successfully and safely provided an in-person learning environment during the pandemic that has made all the difference for our children's development. We are so grateful and highly recommend Geneva School!

Our family has been mightily blessed at Geneva School! Our son started Kindergarten this fall and absolutely LOVES his teacher and his classmates. He is very excited to go to school every day! In fact, he thinks Ms. Kang is the best teacher he has ever had! She is smart, kind, makes his class incredibly fun, and he always feels safe at school. As a parent and health care provider, this has given me the peace of mind to go to work every day and fight for my patients. We love the small class size and supportive school community. I am so impressed by Geneva's staff and faculty, they genuinely care about their students and are always available to help. We are so grateful that Geneva has worked so hard to keep our kids in school during this pandemic. At my son's age, having in-person school is vital to his social, emotional, mental, and educational development. You will not go wrong by sending your child to Geneva! It has been a small beacon of hope in the challenging times we live in.
