67 Parent Reviews for Mackintosh Academy

My son just started pre k this year and it is amazing! MA is a community of families with gifted kids. I am So happy we found Macintosh. Without them my son would have to wait 2 years before he could start school. Mack loves, teaches and supports children and families where they are. The teachers and ...  Read more

For clarification, I am wondering if the following review (dated July 7th, 2013) is referencing the Boulder Mackintosh campus as these comments seem to be in alignment with some of the Boulder parent/student experiences there. From my vintage point, Littleton's campus has more tenured leaders, a collaborative, ...  Read more

Mackintosh is a strong choice in the early grades, but thin staffing, poor management, lack of leadership, and ignoring bad behavior in the classroom at the expense of the victims of bullies make it a place to avoid for parents of kids beyond early education. There are some wonderful teachers at the ...  Read more

The Dec. 19 post confuses me. If you want a stricter admission policy in this economy, you should expect to be solicited for more fundraising. Private schools are desperate for enrollment. The previous administrator was also a business-savvy educator, who's only fault was that she sometimes told the ...  Read more

We have had our kids at Mackintosh for several years now and although there have been some good things, at this point we are frustrated, disappointed, and angry. For the 16k per kid we are paying in tuition, the lack of stability in classroom instruction, inconsistency in instruction, grading, and feedback, ...  Read more

While I agree that there have been some poor admission policies and that more attention needs to be given to hiring to ensure we get and retain the right teachers, none of that changes the fact that my child has THRIVED since transferring to Mackintosh. The IB framework fits well with the GTs drive ...  Read more

I agree fully with the previous 3 reviews. Numerous reviews critical of the administration and management of the school as well as the practice of hiring non-GT teachers to replace the mass exodus were removed by GreatSchools. That being said, it is good to see the remaining teachers more relaxed and ...  Read more

I want to second the review below. There is not enough understanding of gifted learning or behaviors and classrooms that meet those needs. Varies widely across classrooms. I am concerned whether the school is consciously moving away from gifted ed with its recent change of leadership and the hiring ...  Read more

This school has been through tremendous changes in the past two years. The new leadership was a much needed change, the continued IB curriculum is a constant under any leadership. Along with change there has been qualified Gifted and Talented teachers leaving with replacements with new and unexperienced ...  Read more

This is an outstanding school. We have had our son here for 4 years, and it has been wonderful watching him grow and learn from the caring and sensitive teachers. All the kids are smart, whether or not they are twice exceptional. Parents should know that really what they are paying for is great teachers, ...  Read more
