24 Parent Reviews for Next Generation School

For the student who was bullied, my heart goes out for you. I wish those issues were brought to the attention of the teachers and parents sooner, so the situation could have been resolved early. As a parent, I have been thoroughly impressed with the school. The faculty and staff are outstanding. The ...  Read more

I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews. I have been going to Next Generation since I was six weeks old, and I am now 13 years old. I have always loved this school. It's like one big family. I have learned so much and made so many friends. I can honestly say that I am friends with every ...  Read more

The review below makes me very sad. My heart goes out to whoever you are and I am so very sorry you feel that way about your time at NGS. Our experience has been so very, very different. My daughters have all attended NGS starting at the early education level through middle school (10 years now). ...  Read more

I went to NGS and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. The teachers are great and the facility is state of the art but the kids, the kids are terrible. If you don't start attending NGS by the third grade be prepared for isolation. The kids all have cliques. Honestly I was bullied there and ...  Read more

As a Professor of Education, and former literacy consultant for the State of Illinois, I know a thing or two about curricula and learning. Our children have been better off at Next Generation than any gifted program. From day one, thirteen years ago, Next Generation has emphasized individual needs and ...  Read more

We have 3 children at Next Gen (for 5.5 years now) starting in pre-school and now up to 7th grade. The teachers are fantastic, the curriculum is challenging but fun (my son created his own civilization) and balanced (art, PE, music). I love that they provide Spanish starting in preschool. The administrators ...  Read more

Our DD absolutely loved her teachers! We loved her classmates and her class. She grew so much in a short time and we think it's due to her teachers. Unfortunately, the administrators are not so great. They seemed more interested in money than in anything else. They nickled and dimed you to no end! For ...  Read more

I wish it was a little bit more affordable...although if I could keep up with the cost I would definetly enroll my child. I absolutely loved this place as a new comer in this town we did some pre-school browsing and visited everyone of them and not one can compare to Next Generation. You won't find ...  Read more

Both our daughters attended this school from the time they were 10 weeks, until we moved when they were 3 yrs and 6 mos old. We had overall fantastic experiences! Infant teachers were great and really helpful with feeding, getting and maintaining sleeping schedules, development etc. Spanish and music ...  Read more

My daughter has attended NGS since 2007. Not only does she love the school, but she is sad that the school year has ended and want to attend summer camp there as well. We didn't think twice about enrolling our 2 year old in the early education program, even though it does stretch us financially. The ...  Read more
