    "This school does remedial education well. Children with learning, social and emotional challenges are well suited to this school. Children on the other end of these spectrums are not well served at Corlears. There is a lack of expertise within the faculty to cater to above-average learners, with very few enhanced and/or accelerated learning opportunities. The faculty is also so small that teacher absences are not adequately covered. The small class sizes do lend themselves to warm, nurturing experiences, but I would agree that it really depends on your luck with the teacher. The art program is very good, perhaps due to the consecutive heads of school being former art teachers. For all it small size, I have not found the greater school community to be very welcoming or cohesive. There appears to be a vast gap between board member parents and the 'ordinary' parents in terms of levels of satisfaction with the school which seems to be apparent from the reviews."

    "We love Corlears. It is a warm, creative environment that manages to combine both excellent academics with a supportive, team-based approach. I am saying this as someone who attended a top private school in New York City and attended an Ivy League college. Our daughter is in pre-k and already she is reading and doing addition and understands subtraction. The teachers are conscientious and able to differentiate between students' abilities, pushing those who are ready to learn more, while giving extra support to others. In a city like New York, Corlears provides our family with a wonderful community of families and we could not be more satisfied."

    "Corlears is exceeding our expectations. Our child is both learning and loving school. The teachers are supportive, keep in regular contact, and give regular tips on how to continue the learning process at home. We are so glad that we found the perfect school for our child."

    "This school is mediocre at best. The new head of school has implemented some good changes, but unfortunately the changes have been largely cosmetic. In short, the more meaningful issues with the school, namely, curriculum and quality of faculty remain sub-standard. There is no genuine commitment from administration to recruit the best teachers or to improve the curriculum to deliver more robust and enriching experiences for all learners. The mixed-age classes (which span 24 months) absolutely require teachers with sound ability to differentiate between the different levels and capacities within any given class. Unfortunately, there are precious few teachers at this school who can actually do that."

    "Hello, I am the new Head of School at Corlears, David Egolf. The past few months have been such a pleasure for me, getting to know this terrific community! We are a school for children ages 2 through 10 and we are located in one of the most dynamic, exciting neighborhoods in New York City, Chelsea. Corlears is filled with energy and the sounds of joyful students who are engaged and curious about the community they live in and the world around them. They are compassionate and creative, eager to take on new challenges and to pursue new paths to finding solutions. Our students love Corlears and love to learn. Here are the reasons why: *Our academic program develops innovative thinking, collaboration, and communication skills. *Kindness, respect, and integrity are prized in every interaction at Corlears. *Small size... every child is important at Corlears. *A focus on the early years to fifth grade... setting students up for success in middle school and beyond. Graduates from Corlears are capable, compassionate innovators who move on to one of their first choice schools for middle school. They are ready, eager, and confident they will meet the challenges ahead with success. From their journey here, they have learned about themselves and have important insights into the schools that feel right for them. Please explore our website and discover the richness of our program. Come see Corlears and feel the excitement and energy that our children feel every day. Take a tour; meet our faculty; see for yourself our light-filled, spacious classrooms. I promise you will wish that you had gone to Corlears when you were a child. I look forward to meeting you soon. Sincerely, David Egolf, Head of School"
