    "My children just finished their third year at this school and thus far, I am pleased with their progress. This year one of my children need some speech therapy and the school has a speech therapist on staff which was a wonderful in-house resource. Regarding the person concerned about the different academic performance between boys and girls, there is a lot of empirical data documenting that boys begin to lag behind girls academically as young as 4th grade. What this person witnessed in the higher achieving females is a wide-spread challenge that all educators and parents have to work against. While it is possible that the school treats children different based on gender, I won't pretend that does not happen, it's also a developmental pattern that must be addressed by everyone involved in the boys' lives."

    "You can not go wrong with sending your children to this school. We send both our girls to the school and can not be happier with the quality of instruction, the fantastic teachers or the before and after programs. Mira Weber does a superb job at running the school in a way that is structured but doesn't feel overly coached. The teachers are the best. I would HIGHLY recommend sending your children to the school."

    "The previous poster addressed issues regarding graduation that were erroneous. First, Agassiz has traditionally had boys and girls wearing maroon. To suggest that one was intended to highlight the incompetence of a group is ridiculous. That the inclusive nature of Agassiz be so misunderstood by highlighting a student who has always had full access to every part of the school day and year, including graduation, is also a great misconception. The writer apparently missed several other students with Autism who were graduating throughout the ceremony, and were neither highlighted or noticed. Third, out of a staff of approximately 30, nearly a third are males, and are excellent models for all of our students. It is unfortunate that the males in this graduating class were not as academically successful, and that issue should (and will!) be examined. But to make sweeping generalizations about a school based on a single observation of a class is limited and short-sighted. Know that Agassiz is the kind of school that vigorously examines itself, and is constantly looking for ways to improve. Please consider removing this review."

    "I attended this years class of 2011 graduation and was pleased and disturbed with the overall instruction that is going on with the school.. I was pleased that many of the students were academic achievers however I was disappointed in the fact that most of them were female students. That isn't to say that I didn't appreciate their success but I felt that more/equal attention needed to be given to the male students. Maybe there needs to be more male instructors/role models in order to level the playing field. Also their cap and gowns were different The Girls wore white, while the boys wore red, which suggests that the dumb kids were the one whow wore red. Not to mention they gave the special needs boy his diploma, last. And they need to help him him find his seat afterwards. Achievement after achievement was handed out to the girls, while it seemed like the boys wanted to sink in their the boys just sat their slumped in their seats. They must have felt really low. It may seem like a small thing but I woudldn't send my son to a school where the girls are going to get preferential treatment. I'm sorry. It needs to be addressed.. Hire more men!!!"
