    "Tesseract is currently a bit like a ship without a rudder. The current administration wants to make everyone happy so they often respond to the most vocal parents. Some grades are terrific thanks to some spectacular teachers - preK, Kindergarten, second grade and fourth grade were very strong but first and third grade were disappointing. The lower school will have an interim head of school next year and the overall head of school will be new for the 2014-15 year. Next year will likely be a transitional year as the school seems to be 'cleaning house' but hopefully Tesseract will eventually be stronger for all the changes."

    "My children love going to school each day! The educators care for each child & you can feel this when on campus. The environment is loving & fun. Learning is fun & that is what my children are getting at Tesseract! Having fun while learning above & beyond the norm!"

    "Kindergarten and 2nd grade are strong. First grade however is notoriously a problem year. When paying $17000 a year, every year should be fantastic. The lower school is about to undergo a complete change of administration so maybe it will be better in a few years."

    "We are very happy at the Tesseract lower school and my kids have been there since kindergarten. The projects they do are fun, engaging and very educational and allow children to discover information rather than have it spoon fed to them. They are taking responsibility for their learning, which I appreciate. The focus on public speaking and collaboration is so important for a 21st century economy where facts are all available to anyone with a computer. The ability to work with other people, advocate for a position, concede a point, think creatively and critically about a problem or idea is essential for success today."

    "Tesseract is an innovated school for today's students. The classes are engaging and the students work on many occasions, as a team, on real world situations. The students start learning to speak in front of crowds at an early age, and build their self confidence. All children can play on the sports teams, there is a "no cut" policy. The class sizes are small, so every child knows their teachers well, and the teachers learn each child's learning style. I can't say enough about Tesseract. My child is flourishing and will be well equipped for college in her future. Thank you Tesseract!"
