Skinner North follows a great academic program, their materials are a whole grade ahead. Teachers are approachable and informative. They send out weekly emails to update families on their upcoming week activities and assignments. We have been here since Kindergarten. Since day one, SN is made known it is zero tolerance for bullying. It is a diverse and inclusive school environment with a huge parent community support/presence.

This school has gone so far downhill it''s sad. The administration is awful, and they will tell you that bullying isn't an issue, but it's a HUGE problem in all grades. Teachers keep leaving every year, which speaks volumes about how the school is run. This is NOT an advanced education. You'll have to pay for private school for that. Hope your kids like watching You Tube videos, because that''s how the teachers teach here. Principal is in WAY over her head. There are also almost ZERO fun activities for the kids here. Very limited sports and clubs.
