My son has been going to World Academy for over three years. World Academy is a wonderful school. They have been extremely nice, and most importantly, very knowledgeable about children's development. The staff is so dedicated to the children and their growth. They always primed for what was best for my son, above all. I am very happy that I chose a school for my son that cares about his well being almost as much as I do. They were always extremely attentive to my child, and readily available to talk to me when I had concerns. Anytime they had an opportunity to make an impression, they far exceeded my expectations. I truly felt like family to them from the moment my son was enrolled. I highly recommend this school because of their incredibly dedicated staff. I am very grateful to have found them.

My oldest child has gone through almost every program at World Academy. He started the infant program and graduated 8th grade. We chose World Academy based on the high standards and safety that was unlike any other center in Southern NH.Our youngest son is currently in 6th grade. He started when he was 5. He was adopted, spoke little English and without hesitation knew this was the right place for him.The teachers are like no other, they care, they go the extra mile for each child .... I`ve never experienced this before, when you pull away from the school you feel good knowing that the staff and teachers truly care about your child..

In early 2013 we began exploring private school options when we realized how profoundly bored our daughter was in second grade, and the public school teacher(s) and administration just repeated we're following state law re what we teach. We visit World Academy upon a friend recommendation. I cried. Really. In 10 minutes we knew World Academy was perfect...very strong academically, teachers who loved their students, students who loved their teachers, a culture of not ony academic excellence but also critical and systems thinking integrated across all subjects (i.e., robotics, programming, science, english, and other coursework). Students are taught he/she are accountable for the outcomes they generate for themselves and with others. Team projects, presentations, homework, music, art... it flows very, very well because the staff works very hard and smart. And our children, and our friend's children, benefit enormously. My daughter is now 12, high honor role (works hard for it), and words cannot express fully our gratitude to World Academy. Our youngest daughter, 7, thrives as well. As a parent, if I have a question or input, teachers and school leadership engage with me in collaborative partnership. It is a very special, highly accountable school and we are forever grateful.

World Academy is a great school. The staff is amazing, from the first day we walked into the school the staff was attentive, kind and very knowledgeable. As a parent choosing a school is not a easy decision but when you find a school that is the perfect match for your child it is well worth it! I give World Academy five stars!

When my husband and me were looking for a good school we had a few check boxes and were hoping to have most of them checked of by the end of our hunt. Imagine to our surprise when all my boxes and more were met when I enrolled my son at World Academy. The thing that struck me the most is the diversity and how they truly embrace their name "WORLD" . They enthusiasm to nourish our children`s mind and soul has been such a pleasure to experience. Our son has flourished in all aspects of a well rounded education.. education for his brain and body. They truly have become our partners in shaping our child`s future and for that we are so thankful.

We love World Academy. Our 2 year old son is in his first year of the Toddler program. The teachers are so supportive and create a warm, happy environment. Drop off`s can be difficult, but the teachers are so patient and give him the comfort he needs. The focus truly is on the children. We love seeing him try new things, gaining confidence and having lots of fun. The facilities are beautiful. We originally moved here for 1 year, but now that World Academy is in our lives, we don`t want to go too far!
