Review of Braemar House School
Anna Nemeth - Parent (Nov 07, 2018)
The motto at Breamar House School is "Striving for Excellence" and the children have a mantra that they say each morning. At each assembly, they talk about striving for excellence in everything they do and setting noble goals- the first time I heard it, it really touched me and brought home what we really wanted for our son. The academics are far superior to what we have experienced in the public school system and we strongly feel that it will greatly prepare our son for high school, university and beyond. The academic work ethics instilled at Braemar House School will serve him well in whatever life has in store for him. All the educators are on board to make sure our son succeeds.

BHS academic program is strong from start to finish. Reading/Math basics are focused on in the earlier grades and this is built upon by great English/Math/Science/History/Geography curriculum in the older ones. Testing is frequent and feedback is clear- BHS focuses on academic strength. Because of the small class sizes, they are able to augment this base education with enrichment opportunities. Experiments, art, cooking, trips, projects, speech contests, plays, music nights... the list goes on..... these extra opportunities have rounded out and enhanced our kids experience. Public speaking and speech writing encourages confidence but also requires English/research/writing skills. Experiments require an understanding of scientific inquiry but also the ability to work in groups and communicate. Music night require practice and (often) dealing with performance 'nerves' but also an understanding of sheet music and composition. BHS is a place that teaches children all that they need to know.... and then pushes them further.
