Our family has been at Speyer since Kindergarten; our child is about to enter eighth grade. We have been constantly impressed by the teachers (especially in the Humanities), and by Speyer’s dedication to challenge students to grow intellectually and ethically. Our child has learned how to write well, to analyze topics critically and professionally, and to think about issues from both a philosophical and practical viewpoint. Further, Speyer’s emphasis on community building through group work and field trips allows students to see beyond the four walls of the school to become global citizens. Perhaps what we love most about Speyer, though, is that our child can try anything: soccer, track, play writing, poetry, math…. Speyer has fostered all of our child’s interests, and as a result, we have watched this child transform from a teeny 5-year old into a confidant, smart, well-spoken teen who is excited about learning and loves going to school.
