We love The Downtown School! Small classes, excellent and experienced teachers, and diverse student body. The parent volunteer commitment gives the school a wonderful sense of community. There is a reason the lottery waitlist is so long every year! What a special place.

My years at The Downtown School were the best of my life. The teachers are great, the class sizes are small and everyone is like family.
