A review of the academic grades of the students at this school are excellent and the school prides itself in producing outstanding academic results year after year. It is a private school and is not cheap , but I believe it is well worth every penny as we have seen consistent results year after year with our children. It is not unusual for other adults to comment to us on how well educated and polite our children are when we are in public places. While we take some credit for these observations we truly believe the influence of the teachers and other students at Genesis have strongly molded our children into who they are today. Read less

This school is NOT for you, if your child is up to par. The school will test your child and ask questions regarding about his or her performance and other informations.

I have one child still at Genesis Elementary as this year, and one that just finished up at this school. Our family has had such a positive experience at this school. The Kinder and First grade teachers are the rocks of that school and know how to get the students to learn. I was so impressed with their

They have a strong focus on character, and they expect all children to behave (what a concept!) I have not found the other teachers unfriendly at all! I think they do their best to maintain a professional distance so that they show no favoritism between the students. I highly recommend this school! Read less

I am so lucky to be a teacher at Genesis. As I look back at the time I spent in Genesis Schools, Elementary as well as the Preparatory School, I realize now that they helped instill the morals and ethics I value in my life today as an educator.

I have found through my personal experience that the teachers go above and beyond for their students on a daily basis, the administration stays involved in the events on campus while knowing each student well, and the office staff is always very informative and patient. These schools are a family in every sense. The educators and administrators who are employed by Genesis School are all excellent role models and advisors to young adults. When I started my higher education at USF, I found myself completely prepared for the college experience. I owe all of this to the teachers and staff who guided me through my younger years, starting with Ms. Elizabeth s 3-year-old class all the way through Ms. Aedo s AP English. I consider myself very blessed to have had the chance for Genesis Schools to have such a huge influence on my life. I m very proud to be a part of the Genesis family!!!! Read less

My son attended this school for 2 years. While some of the teachers are great the majority of the staff are extremely mean and nasty to the students. I pulled my son from this school after 2 years and have never looked back. Don't waste your money its better spent elsewhere.
