My children are in 2nd and 4th grades at Hubbard Woods School, having started there in kindergarten. Not only do they absolutely LOVE school, but they are thriving. I was skeptical about Progressive Education initially, having come from a traditional background myself, but I have been converted. I have watched this "whole child" approach do amazing things in the lives of my children. They take charge, love learning, feel comfortable asking questions and voicing their opinions, enjoy collaborating with others, have excellent manners, and come up with projects and business ideas regularly. AND, they read well (and often) and are both above grade-level in math. The previous review, dated 2010, is completely outdated. Dr. Ryan and his administration have been in place for 4+ years and have created an amazing educational environment for the kids, and a warm, social, open-door environment for the parents. This school is magical to say the very least.

I am a parent of a HW student. I can attest through experience that the school is broken. Its teachers are out of touch with today's teaching methods, academic excellence is not stressed, and there is no teacher accountability. The only reason the school's test scores are relatively high is that the average IQ of the students is above average and many families use tutors and other external resources to educate their children. These views are shared by many other parents to our great frustration.
