Having heard about the progressive philosophy of Hubbard Woods, I eagerly entered my children 3 years ago. I was astounded by the loving and personal community my children were welocmed into. My children love their school, teachers, and peers. They have each received a very personal, developmentally ...  Read more

We had a choice and we chose Hubbard Woods. Moving to the area a year ago with a 1st grader and toddler, we could have settled anywhere on the North Shore but we focused on a community and an elementary school that felt like home. We instantly fell in love with HW nestled amongst a beautiful village ...  Read more

Hubbard Woods School is one of the best schools I have ever worked with and am fortunate enough to send my children to. Mr. Daniel Ryan, by far, is the most outstanding principal I know, and my review is based on working with hundreds of schools' administrators as a previous Director in Education at ...  Read more

Thank goodness change has come to Hubbard Woods. Perhaps now trust can be restored between teachers, administration and parents. And, perhaps also the community can heal the wounds that left parents on all sides fearing that their children's needs would not be properly addressed. This is great news.

Some families prefer to have their children enrolled in smaller, private schools. To say "many families have moved" is not at all accurate. It sounds as if this parent has little understanding of progressive education - to cite a couple of examples of school practice out of context and to label them ...  Read more

Winnetka's long and well deserved reputation for strong schools is being systematically undermined by the uneven quality of curriculum, teachers, and leadership at Hubbard Woods. Many families have moved their children to private schools to escape "The Winnetka Way," a once useful but now terribly outdated ...  Read more

Our family had all our children go thru Hubbard Woods School and I must say we feel very lucky to have had such a wonderful experience. Currently, our children are in the majority of upper level academic classes, (which is terrific) but more importantly, the confidence and self esteem they were given ...  Read more
