The Gordon School Reviews

9 reviews
All Categories
Our daughter has been at Gordon School since nursery (she is currently a 4th grader). We have been overwhelmingly happy with her experience at Gordon School. In Early Childhood (N-K), the play-based curriculum provided our daughter with the opportunity to learn as she enjoyed play with her classmates and teachers. She explored indoors and out, with guidance from the many teachers. Her confidence as a student and a learner flourished in Early Childhood. In Lower School (1-4), she has grown tremendously each year. The school provides children with a safe, nurturing, challenging environment for learning. Academically, she has reached new levels each year. More importantly to us, though, we have watched our daughter become a confident, poised, thoughtful, curious, and intelligent human and we attribute so much of that to Gordon School.

My family and I love the Gordon school for so many reasons.. the social / emotional learning is beyond compare, the academics are tailored to the needs of all the children in the classrooms, the faculty give 100% all the time and their passion for the school, the kids, and the community is felt the minute you walk in the door. I can't imagine my child going to school anywhere else!
Our daughter has been at Gordon for three years now and I can't say enough good things about our experience. The faculty and staff - everyone from the front desk receptionist to the nurse to the theater teacher to the admissions director - are amazing. They make you feel welcome and like it's a school community where you and your family belong. The focus on social justice in the curriculum is nationally recognized and like nothing else I've seen at other independent schools in the area. We wish our daughter had started going here earlier and that she never had to leave. But we know she'll be fully prepared - academically, emotionally, and socially - for whatever comes next.
