Enrolling at the Intergenerational Schools

What Our Families Say

“Each child is different. My oldest loves the ability to engage in intense discussions in her small class where everyone is able to express their opinions. My youngest likes writing workshop. My middle child enjoys yoga and IG visits.”

“Anytime I call or email a teacher or staff at their school, I am always greeted with respect and I they solve the problem (if any) right away.”

“The staff is patient with the children. They get to know them as individuals which in turn helps them figure out how to teach them and understand their learning styles. My daughter is confident and comfortable when learning and it shows through in her work.”

“My daughter comes home telling me something new that she learned every day. She does not breeze through her work because it is too easy. She is regularly bringing home new work that blends the things she has already learned with new lessons that help the transition go smoother.”

“I think my child has benefited in numerous ways from the different cultures of kids who attend, the field trips, and the unique way of teaching.”

“I love this school, small teacher, student ratio. My son has behavior issues and the school has done so much to help us with this.”
