    "I am not very thrilled with this school for the following reasons... 1) Front gate is locked at all times. you need a key fob to get in, even in the morning when you drop off your kid. I never saw any schools behave like this. 2) The parking lot and traffic are the biggest mess I have ever seen. 3) What is the "Montessori Method"? What I see is 4th grade books for 3rd grade students. 4) If my kid decides she/he does not want to do an assignment, nobody makes him do it and nobody lets me know until parent/teacher night. One of life's lessons is that you can not do only what you want to do. 5) Some of the homework assignments do not seem to even get checked by the teacher. 6) Homework seems excessive and interferes with my evenings since I need to help. Maybe this goes back to nobody making students do the work assigned. Sometimes I have to explain everything like my kid never even saw this work before. Based on these things, I wonder what I am paying for?"

    "I have a daughter in this school. We cane from another private non- profit school. When I compare academics, it is very real that Rainbow teaching is far better than the other school we came from. Ms. Dory, Ms. Geneviev are a great combination for my child. I am very pleased with what I see. I am very confident that my child will be very ready for middle school. I am a strong believer in parent involvement and if we support the hard working teachers and guide our children then we can achieve a lot better. The school's fees structure is very reasonable. They accommodate to parents needs and there is always a great support system. I still believe that they should consider some better resource teachers. Spanish teaching is not very impressive and hope they will come up with a better solution."

    "This school can be the one of the best if someone can change management specially director . She is so incompetent to the extent if someone walks in with some issue she just cant handle it. She should be more approachable and the first person to solve any kind of problem. Most of the teachers don't even speak proper English which is the most unfortunate thing. School reputation is going beyond even normal standards ."

    "This is not a school, but a military style teaching institution. The kids have no fun time in school, but only work, learn and work again. There is no craft and artwork, but only writing and drawing, and everything is related to learning. Their curriculum is 2nd grade level for 1st grade and 1st grade in kindergarten. If your child cannot read before kindergarten, then this is not a right school. The kids are not allowed to talk to each other during the day, except during recess. The school encourages bragging about the kids progress and everything is about being the best in class (due to the different cultural background of the teachers and the director competition is desirable). Most of the teachers have very strong Indian accent and are difficult to understand. The director ignores the inputs from the parents, even after having promised to resolve them. Management is incompetent, but very friendly and always smiling. The teachers claim that the kids have fun, but I have never seen the kids smiling or laughing during the day. Having fun while learning is not a concept that this school endorses."

    "This is a GREAT school. One great thing you can pick the class you want. For toddlers I highly recommend Ms Kumud, she is an Indian teacher, she ensures your child eats, is warm and talk to her and she will give you a clear picture of your child's day. In preschool Ms. Sonia you will be amazed when you see your child color, read and know their numbers, and Ms. Elizabeth, your 3 or 4 yr old will be reciting the preamble, the 44 presidents and little anecdotes about them, the original colonies. Just amazing. Kindergarten Ms. Sora, or Ms. Natalie. Your child will gain confidence and discipline too, both teachers are so good at instilling respect. 1st grade Ms. Grace and Ms. Shubhada's combo class. The combo class has REALLY high standard, so be prepared to have a HUGE load of homework but your child will be so prepared for higher grades. But this class can be very taxing if you or your child are not ready for it !! Third grade I have heard of Ms. Preety but don't have any personal experience but although she is strict her students love her. Great school. My only complaint is I wish the elementary director was more visible and more approachable."
