Tremont is an amazing school. When our son was in public school It was as if he was in a pressure cooker, constantly on guard and falling between the cracks, feeling as if he was stupid. Despite his very high IQ, he was not learning. Tremont was the steam valve that released the pressure. He was able to relax into himself and learn because he felt seen and supported. Our son will be leaving Tremont next year after 5 years there. This school has prepared him to move on to a somewhat larger educational setting where he can spread his wings and succeed with his new found confidence and skills.

My son is in his second year at Tremont School. It has been wonderful to see him grow as a person and a learner at the school. The teachers are caring and creative, and the school community is supportive of everyone. The individual learning model through the living curriculum allows the student to choose topics and methods of learning that engage them, with the teachers' guidance. This leads to an impressive variety of student projects, and I always learn a lot from them. An emphasis on social-emotional learning has helped students like my son be comfortable at school and engage in his learning.

Tremont saved our son's life after a difficult year in a public school in another state. We moved to the greater Boston area so he could attend Tremont. What a turnaround! He is joyful and confident and looks forward to school every day. This is thanks to Tremont's social/emotional focus, their project-based approach to learning, compassionate and dedicated teachers and staff and Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) baked into everything they do all day, every day. Tremont is a very special place.

Our son came to Tremont for 4 years of middle school, and is now starting in the high school. He was falling through the cracks at public school because he learns differently. At Tremont he is engaged in learning: There is lots of hands-on learning through individual interests, breaks and recess periods built into the day, and opportunities to complete work at school if you don't want to have homework. There is structure, within which there is lots of student choice about how to achieve goals. Tremont teaches kids to take control of their learning in ways that work for them.

This is our daughter's fifth year at Tremont School. We have been very pleased with the amount of growth she has achieved in this short time. She is thriving academically, pushing beyond her grade level in some subjects. Socially she has made wonderful friendships at Tremont school. Her emotional growth has been remarkable. The project based curriculum allows students to take ownership over their own learning. She improved in her organizational and time management skills. Every aspect of the school, from the academics, the methods of discipline, the extra curricular activities, the parent involvement, is designed to help build the students' self confidence, critical thinking skills, emotional intelligence, and executive functioning skills. The skills that will serve them for a lifetime. My daughter is in her fifth year and it is the perfect place for her. Our family is so grateful to have found such as wonderful school full of dedicated, bright and energetic teachers and administrative staff.
