    "Grove School is nothing short of FABULOUS! I love Dr K .she is a true definition of what leadership in a school should be. She treats EVERY child as an individual and genuinely cares for each and every one of them. The teachers are all wonderful as well. They all go far over and beyond the duties of any teacher my kids have ever had. Altho my child only attended here one year, I have to say it was by far his BEST year he's had in the last 6 years combined. Thanks to Dr K and all fantastic teachers there for making his 5th grade year a very positive and memorable one. My son always told me he hated school, it broke my heart! Mid way through his 5th grade year, he told me he LOVES school ..and he improved so much in all academic areas! It doesn't get better than that!! One special mention: At the 5th grade graduation ceremony last year, EVERY child was mentioned AND presented with a certificate for what they did well. Not just the "scholar kids" like they do at most schools. Way to go Grove School!!!!"

    "Grove Avenue school so far has been excellent. My child has turned out to be more social, has more confidence, and is doing great at academics too. We moved to the area for the schools and we are glad to have taken the decision."

    "We love Grove. Dr. K is a powerhouse! They have a strong program from the District, which is supplemented so that all students are challenged. It's a great place for your child, not only for the rigorous academics, but the caring atmosphere. It's a great place for your child. Exactly what a quality public school experience should be."

    "Grove Avenue School is the best. We entered Grove from a private school specializing in gifted children and I am so glad we did! We have had an excellent experience at Grove. Dr. K and her staff are awesome. They are caring, responsive, and energetic. Not only are the academics strong, but also the importance of teaching the whole child. My kids are challenged and encouraged to do their best everyday, in a very positive environment. Thank you Grove!"
