    The school is very involved in nutrition and health. They have personal trainers who work with the students. They have weekly yoga. They have a great nutrition curriculum and encourage active healthy kids. The have a "no screen time" policy which makes me sure my child is not sitting in front of a tv. The class size is small and as a parent I feel the schools open door policy for parents is quite refreshing when compared to other schools. Having my child at The Beaches School gives me great peace of mind.

    We like the School. The teachers are actually good with time for each student - unlike over crowded public schools with 16+ kids /class. schools. Obviously though with a smaller school without the big funding they lack some programs.

    My school takes special time with each individual student. I'm very glad I found The Beaches School for my daughter. I recommend this school for any student on any level.

    I feel very fortunate that my children attend The Beaches School. The staff is attentive and caters to the needs of the students on an individual level. The students PE program utilizes personal training instructors. My child is always excited to go to school and the small class size makes the school such a close and supportive community. I really feel like everyone at the school has my childs' best interests in mind with every decision they make.

    My children have been at The Beaches School for two years and I have been very disappointed. After two years they were behind academically and emotionally. The environment of the school is nothing but negative. Teachers were unprofessional. I regret sending my children there. They are many other wonderful choices for private school out there but Beaches School is not worth considering.

    The school is lack of resources that any private school should have. They do not have library or gymnastic. They do not have music teacher nor the program. The teaching method is nothing but haphazard. Teachers are of sub par standard. Disciplining methods were not effective and lack of consistency.Teachers do not behave as role model for students. If you'd like waste your time and money this place is just for you.

    My son is at The Beaches School and is doing wonderful work. He is being challenged and is exceeding tearcher expectations. He has learned so much since arriving at the school. Hats off to the teachers at The Beaches School. Thank you for making learning enjoyable.

    My children attended this school for 2 years. Then I chose to switch them to public school. Academically The Beaches school is WAY BEHIND! I would NOT RECCOMEND this unsafe accademically behind School to anyone. I was highly dissappointed to see the lack of skill the teachers have. the principal never showed any possitive involvement.

    Academics are more one on one than in public schools. The parents are a definite part of the school

    We have been more then impressed by the level of attention and support the teachers and staff have given our sons. We look forward to another year with this school and with their staff.

    The Red School house has been an asset to our family academically and socially. My grade school child attended when he was younger and my 3 year old has attended since he was a little over a year. The teachers here are poised to guide the children to learn social and academic skills through play and fundamentally educate the children by repetition kindness and calmness. Family values and participation is not only welcomed but encouraged. My older son went to a larger school owned by a corporation and while it was a nice school the value of teachers and curricullum was not enforced as it is at the Red School House.

    Strong emphasis on learning and personal responsibility. Christian environment. Very small class sizes allow individual attention.

    This school individualizes learning for the children and it shows in their mannerisms and leadership ablilty.
