    Golda Och Academy provides a warm and nurturing environment where students are taught to think deeply, question the world around them and, most importantly, to be kind to one another. My three children have had an outstanding experience to this point and we look forward to all of them having continued success in their years in the school and, eventually, walking across the stage at graduation. We could not recommend it more highly!

    I couldn't recommend GOA any more highly. I have 2 very different kids who are both thrilled to wake up and attend school everyday. Even in the throes of the corona crisis, the administration has stepped up quickly and adroitly, helping parents navigate remote learning with the same attention to detail as always. What separates GOA as a school is that teachers and administrators care about the growth and happiness of each child in a way that is genuine and inspiring. There are many schools I could send my kids to that would challenge them academically, but GOA is the full-package. My kids are getting the highest quality education while also feeling emotionally supported and heard. The confidence, critical thinking skills, and integrity they gain in such an environment is invaluable. Every year I'm impressed, and every year I am never let down. This is a school, but it's also a family that welcomes all its students with open arms and all the tools to help them reach their potential.
    GOA has been such a warm educational experience for my son. The community of parents, teachers, administrators have created a truly nurturing environment for the children.

    One thing the school does a stellar job at, is preparing the kids for college. I have heard from multiple alumni that they are more prepared than peers on campus and are able to engage with professors and handle the workload where their counterparts have struggled. I truly believe the smaller class sizes GOA offers provides access to teachers and allows them to explore subject in a less restrictive educational setting.
