Almond Acres Charter Academy
- San Miguel Joint Union School District, CA
Parent: This school is not for everyone, but has been perfect for our family. Our two daughters have grown socially, and academically while enrolled at this school. Teachers and administrators are approachable and actually encouraging of parental involvement on campus. This school is a public charter and not a private school, so they do have to honor and follow many of the guidelines put in place by the state in order to stay open.
This school is not perfect, and usually when a family leaves their is a problem that they were unable to resolve.
I encourage any families interested in this school to schedule a tour or talk to currently enrolled families. You will find many who are happy and choose to make the drive every day to make sure their children receive a unique education where there strengths are celebrated and encouraged.

Nysmith School for the Gifted
- Private School
- Herndon, VA
- PK, K-8
Alum: Our 3 kids attended Nysmith from pre-K to 8th grade and it was the best decision of our lives! They never wanted to miss a day of school, because Nysmith knows how to make learning fun. Our kids went on to a great high school (TJ), that was perfect for their math/science/technology interests, and attended their #1 college choices. They were not only ready academically after Nysmith, but they were also happy and confident. The teachers, who are experts and passionate about the subjects they teach, treated the kids with kindness and respect, welcomed their questions, nurtured their curiosity, and helped my kids discover their gifts and abilities - sometimes before they even knew what they were. I highly recommend Nysmith. Or, better yet, don't listen to me...look at their website, see how their alums are doing, schedule a tour and a couple of student visit days for your child. See for yourselves what Nysmith is all about!
