I cannot overemphasize how wonderful the Weiss School has been for my child. We transferred him from the public school system in 6th grade after 6 years of public school "gifted" education. He was bored out of his mind and had not been challenged for too long. He is now finishing the 8th grade and I have no doubt that the Weiss School curriculum, as well as the school's superior teachers and administrators have helped him achieve his potential and discover his interests and motivate him in a way the public school system could not. He's been more than challenged academically by the Weiss School curriculum. He has blossomed into a motivated young man who is interested, active and engaged in community service, the arts, music and academics. Do we attribute this wonderful growth to his teachers and administrators at the Weiss School? You bet we do!!! What makes the Weiss School different? They care about each child as an individual and will draw out the best in each of their students. They are experts in gifted children and know exactly what makes them tick! My only regret is that we didn't enroll him earlier.

My children have attended The Weiss School for the past two years. The teachers are qualified and knowledgeable. There is a well-rounded curriculum which includes, art, music, Spanish and Taekwondo. I love to walk into The Weiss School to see that I am greeted with a smile and that the administrators know all of the students by name!

Based on my experience as a student at The Weiss School, gifted programs at public schools are much more advanced than they are here.
