10 Parent Reviews for The Garden School

I am the grandparent of three of the Garden School Graduates. All three had a difficult time in public school. They "bloomed" in the atmosphere of Dave Miller and his school. They received an education that was well rounded and classical, something the public schools rarely offer today. Mr. Miller always ...  Read more

I am a parent of two children currently enrolled at The Garden School. Our family loves the community aspect and always feels that our needs and concerns are being met. The teachers are dynamic and recognize the individual talents and gifts each child brings to the classroom and the school community. ...  Read more

In an era where we are taught and told what to think, this school stands out in the classical model teaching our children how to think and discern the truths of the world for themselves.

My children go to school here so perhaps I am a bit biased but this school has been a great fit for our family. We primarily homeschool but our children go here twice a week.

You learn so much more than in a public school, and you go into depth more than the breif overveiw you get in public schools. You actually read Thomas Jefferson's letters than about them.

We love this school. Math and science is to be taught at home. The two days at the school should be supplemented at home on the other days. This outline allows us to explore different parts of our world and experience many facets of our community.

Student for 7 yrs. Complete lack of math and science classes. They teach drama and how to draw pretty pictures. Nice to know: kindof. Life skills: not at All. Ifyou want to make a living in life go somewhere else to learn how because you won't learn there.

A private school with emphasis on parental input; meets only 2 days per week; with 'home school' / 'home tutoring' the other three days; strong in the arts (they like drama)

This school is awesome! I'm actually a student there and I feel that I learn more in half a year at this school than most kids learn in a whole year of public school. Also I feel that it has a real family type setting and that there are some really neat people that go here that I get to know really ...  Read more
