    Don’t we as parents want the best for our children?

    As SKS parents, we feel that we have done the right thing — we have a happy student! Our kid is thriving academically, creatively, and spiritually. The school offers a rich bouquet of opportunities for our child to discover. Studying is always an effort — but at SKS, the teachers encourage students to take the lead and make their own success. By design the learning curve is steep, but the rewards are great. I heartily recommend Storm King School to prospective students and their families.

    Storm King is an amazing place that has truly shaped who I am as a person today. The opportunities here and endless. Every student truly has a voice in this unique community. All of the faculty members truly care about the success and wellbeing of each one of us. Students are very supportive. Classes are challenging, but teachers, advisors, and other faculty members truly work with you and care to see you achieve your goals. Storm King is a great community, and coming here is by far the best decision I've ever made!
    My son graduated from Storm King last year and I must say that it was a truly transformational experience for him. While studying in a rigorous academic environment, he often spoke of how there was a spirit of cooperation amongst his peers and how his teachers were accessible. He was able to participate in many activities - athletics, performing arts, clubs, etc... during his time at Storm King. While busy, he wasn't overwhelmed. Thumbs up to Storm King for preparing my son well for life!
