What are people saying about School for Community Learning?

“This school has been the best thing to happen to my son since entering school. Ms. Jessie is the most patient, encouraging teacher. She, and the wonderful staff have given me the best version of my son. The only thing I would change, is extending the grades into high school. Our family is going to miss this school!” – Parent

“We love the learning environment, the fantastic faculty and different class offerings. Our daughter has taken her choice of art classes, yoga, and outdoor classes and has loved each course. She is excelling in math and growing in reading. She loves to go to school and that says a lot! School for Community Learning was the best choice.” -Parent

“School for Community Learning is an Independent School that emphasizes project-based learning and emphasizes social justice. For my high-energy 2nd-grader, this is the perfect combination to maximize his achievement. SCL is a perfect school for anyone who values focusing on individual students, rather than grade levels, and on teaching the right way, rather than teaching to the test.” -Parent

“We’ve been so pleased to find a positive environment that encourages our son to learn at his own pace and in his own way. Both kids and staff are amazing, patient, encouraging, and so supportive. Truly a unique and excellent learning space. I would never send him anywhere else now that we have experienced such a great learning model.” – Parent

“My son began here in 3rd grade from a wonderful public school and I haven’t looked back since! While his previous school was great, it pales in comparison to SCL! Here he is free to be himself in a supportive and enriching environment. He learns through several different modalities and is NEVER taught to the test (although they do ISTEP, it is not at all the focus of his learning). In a single year he advanced 3 grade levels in reading and 2 in math. He comes home everyday excited about what he learned and wakes up every morning excited about what the day might bring (well, maybe not everyday, he is a 4th grader after all…but a significant improvement from the fight to get him to school previously). The teachers and staff know my child (and our family) on sight and it is a great community feel. They also know what strengths and challenges my son faces and create the right learning experience just for him. I cannot even imagine going to another school!” -Parent and School Volunteer

“On behalf of my family, I would like to thank School for Community Learning to giving my daughter the opportunity and free reigns to express herself more openly. Before the school year started, my wife and I were so misplaced as to where we were to enroll our daughter for her last year in junior high school – and there you guys were. Upon her being with a system of learning that is more conducive for her skill sets, she has become more outgoing than ever  and it is in my opinion one of the greatest decisions as her father that School for Community Learning was a perfect fit for her growth and development upon transitioning into high school.” – Parent
