    "My son has been at RDS for five years now, and he has had a great experience. He loves school, loves his teachers. They appreciate what makes him unique while helping him grow. One great perk is that through third grade there is a full time teacher and a full time intern in the classroom. Every intern we had was great, and having two adults in the classroom made all the difference. If one child is having a bad time, he or she can have the full attention of a teacher while the rest of the class smoothly continues - everyone is being taken care of. There are also great "specialist" classes. My son gets to go to art class, music class, Spanish class, science class, PE - all taught by experts in their fields, while his main teachers get a break and can get ready for the next lesson."

    "Our daughter has completely come out her shell at RDS! She wakes up excited every morning to go to school and we couldn't be happier as a family. What we appreciate most about RDS is how thoughtful the teachers and administration are with curriculum. Rather than being in a hurry to demonstrate mastery of different skills, careful attention is given to building a solid foundation in order to make sure there are no gaps in student learning later on when more sophisticated concepts are introduced. This understanding of how important foundation skills are to future success is apparent in the different ways new concepts are brought into the classroom and previous concepts are reinforced. Students are more thoughtful with their approach to their learning, instead of simply looking for right answer. The teachers also pay very close attention to each student. Our daughter's teacher notices everything about our child from her academic strengths and weaknesses to her idiosyncrasies that only our family usually notices. Beyond the classroom, the parent community at RDS is loving and supportive. We are so thankful that our daughter is growing up in the RDS community."

    "We ve had 2 sons at RDS for 6 years. It's wonderful. But, because our older child in elem. school is inspired by math & technology and scores well, when he was in 4th and 5th grade, we considered and fully researched other MS/HS options we *perceived* to be more academic. We thought a change would be the best to build self-esteem -on his strengths- and get him positioned for HS. We decided to stay at RDS! We grew to appreciate what we didn't appreciate we already had! The exersize was an eye opener. Other than in language choices, the other schools weren't more academic. The curriculum , expectations and the teaching styles were similar. RDS had more connections *between* subjects. Besides sports, it has more extracurriculars. RDS's STEM program is inspired and rigorous. The Health strand for middle schoolers is awesome (sex, drugs, identity, nutrition). Kids aren't perpetually nervous (few bite their nails). RDS teachers are clearly at the ready for students. Middle schoolers are impressively grounded and have all kinds of chances to shine. Dig into the data about at RDS. Listen to the concepts and questions the faculty and students are articulating. Impressive."

    "I want to BE my children ... and my greatest wish is for every child to have the opportunity to learn and grow in a place like Redwood Day School. Thank you, Redwood Day, for helping all kinds of learners -- and all kinds of people -- come together and become the best that they can be."
