One thing that stood out to me during the tour was how alive the teachers seemed like they enjoy what they do and are passionate about it, there wasn't a sense of burnout like in some of the other private schools. This has held true our kid loves the teachers, respects them, and feels close to them. Our son is in the Upper School. I feel lucky to have found such a unique place where my child is happy, stimulated, and bubbling over with info on what they learned today on our way home. He does his work on his own and takes pride in it. I really appreciate how much writing they do, including lengthy essays, and how little of it is on the computer. They do have a computer class teaching them useful basics like Google Suite use etc and are capable of delivering typed and properly formatted assignments. The scope and quality of History are absolutely superb! He comes back home showing me an excerpt from a musical sketch of Cromwell and when asked enthusiastically tells me all about Cromwell. Ditto ancient history, US history etc. Math is also very high quality. In public elementary, we had to take extra Advanced Math classes, as Math was so primitive. The math my kid's doing now in Spring school exceeds the Advanced Math classes level for the grade he is in. Amazingly, although I wouldn't say I have a particularly math-loving kid, there is no pushback whatsoever from him he loves the teacher and breezes through the homework. I really appreciate the school's approach where math homework answers marked wrong need to be corrected, this mindset of striving for excellence is very positive, constructive, and reflected in everything in the school. They care and they are on top of things. Children actually learn Grammar with diagramming sentences and a strong set of Language Art skills. I feel like the school has an excellent mix of respect, simple fair discipline, and a happy atmosphere of normal childhood which is so hard to find these days. They're always playing different games at recess, there is never any drama or ugliness. The communication from the school is to the point, concise and efficient what joy after getting twenty random public school emails a day about nothing, every day. The teachers are always open to communication, and easy and enjoyable to talk to. The kids are lovely smart, kind and cooperative. We went to the Regional Bees competition recently and it was so heartwarming to watch our students cheer for each other, hug and support each other!
