Realm's teachers are so committed to the success of all of the students! They get to know the kids and their families and make sincere connections with them. They focus both on academics and who the child is as a person. Sometimes the administration is not as good at consistent communication with the families.

Staff and teachers are engaged. Because it is a small school everyone knows my child's name and are able to create a supportive community.

As with all schools, communication with parents can be more timely as can teacher retention.
REALM is a good place to go if you don't get into your desired school. Its curriculum is way better than public school, but is also not as rigorous as that of a private school. The only issue is the school's finances being mishandled one year. Other than that, it has been a chill experience.
