“Our daughter is now in her 2nd year. . . . As a native francophone, she fit right into the French immersion program, and is already speaking some Mandarin! What we like most about the school is their approach to math and science, which are weaved into the children’s activities. But more importantly, we love the community at SLA. The parent body is diverse, involved, and supportive. The teachers are warm and welcoming and foster a spirit of cooperation and compassion among the students, and they all seem to love being in school together!”

“We came for the French, but we stayed for the math.”

“We are parents of both a second grader and fourth grader at SLA. My children have been with the school since Pre-K and are fluent in both speaking and reading French while my husband and I speak limited French. My children love Math, Science and Literacy because subjects are taught through exploration. I believe SLA’s greatest strengths are its creative, calm, and nurturing environment that allows children to flourish as individuals.”

Grade 2 parent

“[My child] has been coming home every day chattering about numbers and wanting to play math games. As the parent of a girl, I’ve been worried about her feeling discouraged from loving math. But you guys have made math into an amazing experience for the kids.”

“I love SLA for its top-notch, project-based curriculum that challenges children to go deeper in their understanding of what they are learning. I love the dedicated, creative, and inspiring teachers who know my child so well and encourage him every day to reach his potential academically, socially, and emotionally. This is truly an amazing school, and I couldn’t be happier to see how my child has blossomed here.”
