The Young School has proven to be a great choice for our son`s early childhood education! He just turned four and has enjoyed every moment of the last 2.5 years as he has grown lasting friendships and learned so much through their hands-on curriculum that my son responds to very well. This school is a clear pick when you are touring schools - we found no better option!

Well organized with less turnover than surround schools. Baby rooms are welcoming without lined up cribs giving the feeling of "cages" as I saw elsewhere. Kids have true connection with teachers.

My daughter has been attending the Young School for the past two months and I have loved everything about the school so far. When I first walked through the place, I wanted to enroll myself -- it looked so engaging. Their philosophy is to provide students endless opportunities to interact with the real world. Our daughter plays with a variety of fabrics and mirrors and watches a fish tank. They expose her to books even at this young age. Our main care worker cared enough about our daughter to bring in an outfit for their spring "Butterfly Picnic" where they get to see the release of a bunch of butterflies. It is a wonderful school. I highly recommend.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
