This school is a local gem in Clifton. When my child was graduating from 5th grade, I looked at public and private school options. I didn't want to pay expensive tuition, but I knew I wasn't going to send my child to a public school with 1400 students. Classical Academy was a great alternative because the students are high-performing, the student body is diverse, and it's a really small school. Very glad I made the choice - my child has had a good experience.

this school smells so bad and if a class room smells bad, the teacher will force you to sit in a nasty smelly room with musty children that don't put of perfume or deodorant.
