We have been part of the Mackintosh Academy community for the past 5 years, with both our son and daughter attending the school. From our experience, the school serves 2e children well, however we believe there is not enough academic differentiation to serve highly gifted children successfully.

My 5 year old is attending this school and he just loves it. The teachers are awesome and the head of the school is very compassionate but firm in her dealings with the kids. I couldn't have a better choice for my son who is advanced. I recommend this to parents who have kids that needs a specialized education and attention
