The combination of top flight academics balanced with a strong social emotional learning curriculum are excellent. Children thrive here.

PBS is an excellent school. We had one child graduate in 2012 and our next graduates in 2016. A few negative reviews exist below about preparation for middle school and they are grossly exaggerated. Our eldest went to one of the best and most academically challenging middle schools without receiving ...  Read more

We had four children start at PBS, one graduate and removed the other three after patiently waiting for meaningful change. PBS draws on the the relocation crowd (which we were) and provides some of the best Marketing spin in Silicon Valley. Academics and curriculum are below public school standard, teachers ...  Read more

We were drawn to PBS in part because of the strong stated commitment to a "no mean kids" philosophy and concerns about potential bullying of our daughter. We found the commitment to be largely illusory - in large part because of intense snobbery and clique-ishness among the mothers, which was reflected ...  Read more

This school is absolutely amazing, I have yet to find a school like it. Kids are taught to become kind, appreciative, understanding, and accepting. Not only do they develop into great people, they discover a true love of learning and curiousity. They become like family with their classmates and have ...  Read more

The kids are happy to go to school everyday and we have met the nicest parents there who have become our very good friends. Every teachers knows your child and really cares about their development as a learner inside ...  Read more

It s not easy to choose a school. We wondered when oldest started preschool at PBS what the parent population would be like and, with some great public schools around, about the investment. But the ELC was magical, our child loved it and we made family friendships right away. It was an easy decision ...  Read more

We have three children at Phillips Brooks and have been pleased with the program all the way from preschool through fifth grade. Every step of the way, the children at PBS learn to follow where their curiosity leads them, to respect themselves and their fellow classmates, and to push the boundaries of ...  Read more

Our family could not be more pleased with Phillips Brooks. With all due respect to the person who wrote the negative review, I strongly disagree with the assertion that graduates are not academically prepared. Our child graduated from PBS last year, was admitted to a very selective school and felt completely ...  Read more

We were in PBS for 4 1/2 years, before I moved my daughter to La Entrada. I wish I had made this move much earlier. When my daughter started La Entrada we were shocked how far she was behind, academically. It took quite some tutoring to get her caught up. I do hope that the new principal at PBS will ...  Read more
