Parent: My son attended Duke School from K-8. Kindergarten was the best, of course, but 1-5 was the elementary school I so wish I could have attended as a child. The project-based curriculum, and also the "special"s teachers, helped our child to flourish in ways I didn't think were possible. In middle school we began worrying about the lack of a GPA, but the children do not mind and apparently neither do some highly competitive high schools.
Beware, openings can be scarce. Our son was wait-listed for Kindergarten (!). Fortunately they relented before we had to accept elsewhere. We should have applied earlier, for pre-K.
