    Menlo Park Academy Reviews

    Great if your child is gifted. If your child is a gifted outlier (ADHD, 2e, Autistic, Profoundly Gifted) probably not the right school for you.

    Large class sizes, no walls, no lockers, teachers who care with all of their hearts, but leave mid-year because they are underpaid and overworked. Parents are involved, which is a definite plus.

    Classes have been dumbed down lately in maths and sciences so not all kids are being challenged. No technology teacher, no robotics club, no after school math league.

    Menlo Park Academy has been such a wonderful place for our children to find their tribe of peers. The teachers are wonderful and give so much of themselves to the students and make it a point to teach in unique and exciting ways. We really appreciate this school and all it offers to its students.
    Amazing teachers the programs they offer to advance the kids are phenomenal. They offer college level calculus and they also cater to children with IEPs and disabilities really a fantastic school.
