GEMS World Academy Chicago Reviews
Fast forward 2.5 years. Our oldest is THRIVING. We’ve seen his growth educationally, emotionally, and culturally. All the things we were aiming for when considering schools. He walks into school eager to start his day. He’s had a deep affection for all of the teachers he’s had. He particularly gained a close relationship with his collaborating teacher last year. And while she’s moved on to leading a classroom of her own in a higher grade this year, if my son sees her in the hallway, he runs into her arms to hug her and catch up on life! She always greets him with the same amount of enthusiasm. Our youngest started in PS3 classroom this year. He had a bit of separation anxiety. His teachers and the lower school counselor worked with us and him to come up with a plan to make his transitions easier.
