Menlo Park Academy Reviews

Menlo Park Academy is a great school for gifted kids. My child really likes the challenge and his peers. He says the other kids "get him" at Menlo. The math is a bit too easy and beginning of school communication is a bit lacking so that is only reason for a 4 instead of a 5. By end of 1st month school communication was much better and consistent.
From a students perspective, Menlo isn't good. It's great. The challenging amount of class work and school studies is a really good prep for high school. It does not have the feel of a regular public school though, the students are all highly gifted and interesting in their own way. But let me be honest, the cafe food is not recommended by me.
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.

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.
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.
