    "I am so happy with Ravenswood. My son has been here since PreK and is now in 3rd grade. They use great curriculums (balanced literacy and Everyday Math) to teach reading and math, but my son more often comes home talking about science and how much he has learned about life cycles (3rd grade curriculum). I love that the teachers find time to give science and social studies their due, along with lit and math. Ravenswood is so committed to lower class sizes (the most he's had is 25), which is a bonus for my son, who might not get his due in a large class because he's a quiet kid. Last but definitely not least, Ravenswood provides quality Arts education--art, music and drama every week! I have been impressed with all of the teachers--they go above and beyond to make Ravenswood a true community!"

    "Our son has been at Ravenswood since Pre-K and is now going into second grade. He has continued to thrive is this school. The sense of community and parent involvement is fantastic. The Friends of Ravenswood is a welcoming parent group that has really helped with communication in the population. We are thrilled to have our son in this program."

    "My 2 kids have been at Ravenswood for 4 years and I couldn't be happier. I am also a teacher and I absolutely CHOSE this school because of the fantastic instruction and philosophy that the school values. The students are challenged and engaged in authentic learning that is completely differentiated. The staff is extremely talented and the administration is top notch. Our school community is really strong and the amount of events that bring us together is unbelievable. I think the best part of this school that sets it apart from the rest is the unbelievable arts integration program that the kids are involved with. The knowledge my kids have around the process of art, drama and music is more than I could have hoped for as a parent. I would highly encourage anyone who values instruction to look at this school beyond test scores. What a wonderful experience Ravenswood has been for my kids."

    "My daughter has been at Ravenswood for five years and has had an incredible educational experience. She is in fourth grade and every year she has been challenged and supported with excellent teachers, a deeply integrated fine arts program, a strong emphasis on reading, and an incredible community spirit. The teachers and staff at this school are dedicated to continuous improvement and at least every month there are collaborative events that bring together students, teachers, staff and parents for learning and community building. The principal is focused on rigorous academic standards and on giving teachers the tools and time they need to be successful."

    "My daughter has completed two years of Pre-K and now kindergarten at Ravenswood, and I couldn't be happier. She's well advanced in reading, writing and math. She's learning great social skills and loves the art, gym, music and drama programs. The teachers are enthusiastic, and we've heard great things from friends with kids in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade how great those teachers are."
