My kindergarten daughter loves her teacher and has fun at school. Classes are interactive and kids are rewarded for behavior (Bancroft Bests).

Bancroft is a wonderful school full of caring teachers and very supportive and involved families. The school is clean and well maintained, offers affordable hot lunches and lots of extra-curricular activities. Don't waste your money on expensive, over-rated, pretentious private schools. Support your ...  Read more
