The best academics in D1, and with the benefit of a MS option.

It was amazing, it built character in me and let me build social skills and find friends. However, the principal needs to be kicked out of the school soon.

Wonderful teachers and staff. Very responsive to concerns. Polite and professional. Kids are well behaved, happy, friendly, studious and supportive. My son transferred here after his Charter School abruptly closed (he was enrolled there for only 1 year). Prior to the Charter school, he was in a private progressive school. The Charter School closing is a blessing in disguise, because it allowed my son to be enrolled here....he is so much happier and is flourishing in this school.

We are very happy with Shuang Wen. The "new" principal has a wonderful and focused vision for ensuring success from all of her students. We have found teachers to be wonderful, warm, and encouraging leaders with whom we have a very active dialogue. Though people tend to focus on the Mandarin education and the workload required of students, I would also poitn out the large art studio (much loved by our children!), as well as the excellent library, dance studio, and science lab. Also, our children take both piano and karate classes as part of the after-school program. It's true that there have been changes, and it's true that there is a fair amount of homework and some focus on preparing for exams. But on the flip side, there is also an excellent balance-of-life there and our kids have a lot of fun. We highly recommend this school, which we are finding an excellent path to a great education, bilingual children, and preparations for the tests that will be part of their lives to get into great high schools and colleges. This school has it all.
