    "We have been very happy with our family's experience at Town. The new Head of the Lower School is fantastic. The Head of School sets a warm, funny, dedicated tone for the school and during the capital campaign Town has been doing to fund the new building, he has been appreciative of even small gifts (which we gave) with sincerity which was really nice. The teachers are expert, fun-loving, and masters at engaging boys in learning. We have especially loved the Exploring New Ideas program that exposes boys to mechanical engineering, coding, and exploring design solutions. They boys love it. The community is warm and welcoming and fun. We originally expected the school to be cold, competitive, lord of the flies, and sports obsessed. But, every kind of boy is appreciated - my son loves art and music and it's encouraged and appreciated there. The families are kind. Town is a great place for boys to learn and develop and be happy."

    "This school does not live up to it's reputation. The weaknesses are 3 fold - curriculum and teaching methodology, leadership, and character education. Town teaches the same curriculum as the public schools (literally). There is no hands on learning (at summer camp a counselor was stunned to see my son wonder aloud about the math manipulatives which he'd never seen before) and they actually discourage inquisitiveness. The headmaster has been there for 25 years and is now a fundraising figurehead. The Director of the Lower School has been there 35 years, and the teaching reflects such. They pay lip service to 21st century learning, but there is no evidence of it in the classroom - lessons are taught with a group lecture and worksheet. Perhaps the most unsettling part has been the complete lack of character education. Their claims to "embrace boyhood" are straight out of "Lord of the Flies". My son does not feel safe at school. The only positive things about this school are: a good art program and they're constructing a new building, which will be clean and bright. You'd be much better off choosing another (any other!) independent school, or even sending your son to public."

    "This school is awesome!! Every boy loves Town School! The faculty and staff are amazing and truly strive to make each boy's educational experience phenomenal by allowing them to be the unique and individual boys in which they were meant to be. It is all about boyhood here and when boys are happy they will learn!!"

    "The teachers at this school are so amazing! They truly get and celebrate the boys. In the fall conferences our son's first grade teachers understood him almost as well as we do...and they had only been with him for 6 weeks! They completely got him. It blew us away. It's a pretty academically rigorous program...with a lot of focus on math and reading in the early grades. The after school extras are amazing! The school has a lot of emphasis on sports. (If your child is not into sports you may want to think twice.)"
