    The Fessenden School Reviews

    2 reviews
    I am blown away by the individualized attention that my sons get at Fessenden. The teachers really know how to motivate them and bring out their best academically, socially, and emotionally. Their hands-on/project-based learning approach not only keeps them engaged but is teaching them the critical skills they will need to succeed in high school and beyond. I couldn't be happier with the education my sons are getting at Fessenden.

    Fessenden is an amazing school. My boys actually jump out of the car in the morning and run to greet their teachers. They also have a fabulous Extended Day Program. My sons beg to stay even on days when I don't need the extra childcare.
