We (like 87% of the other students who are at GPS) have been with the Genesis Schools since Pre-K I and have been very satisfied with the results. The curriculum is college prep and yes, there is quite a bit of homework however; I have found that most of the work reinforces what they learned that day

The school does offer plenty of support for the students to take advantage of including tutorials after school, which is great to get a jump start on the evening homework & individual tutoring is available too should anyone need the extra support...they just have to ask to have it arranged! The school does have high standards for their students, parents & teachers. There were times over the last couple of years when a few of the newer teachers weren't a "fit" for either the school and/or students & while the timing is never easy with those types of things, as a parent, I appreciate when that's recognized & resolved as quickly as possible. While the tuition is a bit high, you get what you pay for - 100% of last years graduating students attended college & 90% have received academic scholarships! Read less

My son has been going to Genesis since he was in PreK. He is now in Genesis Preparatory School and it has been the best investment for his education!
