    "I think the administration is flooding this site with positive reviews. It's a basic fact that the "Tiger Moms" and private tutors have led to the continual success of students at this school. The students (I am an ex-student with a sister currently enrolled) thought the "Blue Ribbon" award was a joke. It just seems that Catholic school teachers are not as good as public school teachers and I would say this is the case at this school. As you can see from other reviews, there are problems here and Great Schools should not censor the truth and promote propaganda."

    "Transfiguration is a wonderful school, real treasure. The principal, teachers and staff are very organized, helpful and resourceful. At the age of 4, my child was reading, writing and doing simple addition, subtraction, sequencing, patterns and even analogies. My child has learned a great deal since being a part of this great school."

    "As a former student and IVY League grad, I can confidently look back on my Transfiguration experience with great pride. The values of hard work and discipline provided the solid foundation that was necessary for high school and beyond. I credit my 1st Grade teacher who instilled in me a love for academics. My 2 kids are now attending Trans and I find that the same curriculum and attention to detail are still present. Those parents who criticize the school's teaching methods should look at the reasons why the US is falling severly behind the rest of the world in terms of mathematics and science. The bottom line is that there are no shortcuts to success. A good solid core is required and the teahcers at staff Transfiguration are dutiful in providing their students with this very thing."

    "As a parent of a child who started at Transfiguration this year, I am pleased with the school program and the progress made by my child. The environment is academic and the principal, teachers and staff are very collaborative and supportive. I am amazed at the program and the friendly school environment. My child has learned to write and do various activities in the classroom. All the children's artwork are showcased in the corridor for parents to see. There are themes for each month and a school trip to reinforce the learning. Homework provides structure and content, and I appreciate the progress made by my child every day! The parents are very involved in the activities and volunteer for the events. Overall, it is an excellent school, and deserves the recent Blue Ribbon recognition by the Department of Education in Washington, D.C. for its academic excellence and high performing students. It is a gem of a school that is known by the community and the long waitlist to get in speaks for itself. We are so grateful that my child has been given the opportunity to learn here!!"

    "I have two children in the Pre-K program at the Kindergarten location at Confucius Plaza. We are now 6 months into the school year and I feel I can speak from a place of knowledge and experience regarding this school. Academically, this school excels beyond expectation. Both my children are writing, reading, and building an extensive vocabulary base as well as sequence skills. They are digging into math in the form of digits, ordering and sequential methods. Additionally they are keenly in tune to, social, spacial and inner awareness (due to yoga, dance, drumming, and the emphasis on kindness, etc). I am extremely impressed with the teacher/child ratio, the appreciation for elders (in terms of grandparents), the amount of field trips and environmental exploratory work that happens in a 8.5 hr day. We are looking forward to Kindergarten at the Mott Street Lower School location. I will update my review of that location once we've acclimated ... to be continued...."
