My daughter entered Sterling School at age 11 almost entirely illiterate, not knowing how to read or even sound out certain vowels and consonants properly, not knowing how to spell even the simplest words, and not understanding context of many passages she had someone read to her. She left Sterling School at age 13 reading fluently and knowing how to sound out difficult words by breaking them down. She can now break down extremely difficult words better than me! "Effective teachers" is an understatement. The teachers and administration at Sterling School completely understand the individual needs of each student and have successful strategies to bring them up to levels that allow them to function successfully in life. I cannot say enough good things about Ruth and her amazing team!Ruth has drawn together a staff of loyal and committed teachers and support staff that have successfully brought together struggling children from throughout the city's school system into proud graduates. The transformation is amazing to watch. I was unaware of Sterling School at the time I was looking for a school for my daughter. The school was recommended to me and I had trouble finding much information on the staff or student success. I took the chance. I have never regretted the decision one bit. Ruth and her staff goes above and beyond and I cannot recommend this school enough. The small setting only enhances the environment and Ruth knows and understand each and every student. The attention and success we have had at Sterling School has been truly life changing. If you are considering this school, please do so without hesitation!
