Our family loves this school! We switched our daughter to Seth Boyden from an expensive, "brand-name" private school that wasn't academically challenging enough, and Seth Boyden is SO MUCH BETTER. The teaching has been excellent. It's great for all kids, with all kinds of strengths and/or challenges, because the school emphasizes differentiated learning and multiple intelligences. The community of kids and families is awesome -- welcoming, diverse, not clique-y. There are lots of outdoor learning opportunities (outdoor classroom, vegetable garden) and lots of chances for kids to be creative and learn about the arts (Shakespeare for 4th-graders, "dancing classroom" for 5th-graders, huge variety show). There's a big emphasis on literacy, and through reading, writing, and classroom activities, the kids cover a huge amount of current events, history, and science. The math curriculum is strong, too.
