    Our daughter goes to the Pre-Nursery program for 2 year olds (the description on this Niche site says that Preschool program starts at age 4 - not correct) and she is thriving. She is able to recognize letters and count, and loves her music class. There's library session once a week, and very well thought out learning modules. The teachers are excellent and have wonderful communication with the parents. My husband and I were both former teachers at private institutions and we love the school!

    Young, enthusiastic teachers all trained in the British education system. Rather than focus on homework and multiple choice exams, this school trains students to both in research and how to actively participate in an international and multicultural world. The schools integrates well established programs such as Cambridge curricula/exams, MIT technical programs, and Juliard art training.
    It’s good educationally, but socially it lacks a fun and uplifting atmosphere. Students are not extremely motivated but teachers always help if asked. Clubs and sports are very poor due to the lack of faculties and lack of motivation to join any clubs.
