    "A small college prep school with a large heart and 83 acre campus. The student/teacher ration is small and therefore very interacting and engaging. The hours are long, with Saturdays included until 1pm. The school offers, at an additional cost, a course entitled, "Strategies" which helps the students organize their work day and assignment load. My son chose this school and loves it. The dorms are well sized with a lovely view, (it's at the top of the mountain in Kent). where it is located. A quaint "downtown" and numerous other boarding schools are located in the same area. Students seem content with a family like campus. The number of students are approx. 156 with a diverse international and US population. Everything you could want in a boarding school."

    "I have 2 children attending Marvelwood and have nothing but positive things to say. My son came in his Junior year from public school and all the staff and faculty has helped in the transition. As a Senior he has grown into the young man I always knew he was. He always was under the radar at public school and Marvelwood brought out in him his full potential. The hands on science classes are his favorite and in his 2 years has taken 4. He struggles in math but the teachers have worked with him, after school, on their own time, to give him the tools he needs to succeed. The College Application process has been going smoothly thanks to the excellent work of the College Counseling Department. Both my children are thriving here and thanks to the small school setting they are able to receive the attention they both deserve."

    "This school seems to want to be something it can not. Surrounded by superior boarding schools - Marvelwood needs to define its market more clearly and do whatever it can to meet the needs of those particular students. It clearly does not have the deep pockets most of the other CT independent schools have. It doesn't have the academic or athletic bragging rights either. While they do market themselves as a place where kids with learning differences can thrive, I am not convinced that they have pursued that end with the focus or passion that it deserves. My biggest complaint with the place is that the administration is shockingly bad at dealing with parents, or at least they were when we were associated with the school. I would not recommend this school to anyone."

    "The Marvelwood is an amazing school that offered me the opportunity to rise to my full potential. Before coming to Marvelwood I was a C- student at a well known prestigious school boarding school that ignored my needs and expected me to learn like everyone. I was depressed. I was stifled before I came to Marvelwood. The caring and supportive teachers gave me the tools I needed to unlock my capabilities while celebrating my gifts. I highly recommend the school."

    "Marvelwood use to be my home, my family and my life. The teachers there are all wonderful, I look back on my time there and only see positive events. They helped you grow and learn life experiences for yourself, but they were never far away or too busy to listen. I owe a lot of thanks to everyone there, I wish I could do more to give back."
