  • This school has an excellent track record for academics and caring teachers who go above and beyond. The administration does work with all families and provide many services.

  • We have been so pleased with this school. We are thrilled with the staff and the other parents there. We have two children here and are amazed with all that they are learning. My children love their teachers and we have been so happy with their teachers.

  • We have been happy with this program and have been involved with two children over four years. Our twins will start in the fall of 2010 and we couldn't be more excited. The teachers are amazing and the administration really knows all of the children and creates ideal opportunities for each of them based on their needs. Our oldest son was reading at the age of four and our youngest son knows all of his letters and sounds at the age of barely three. We encourage you to scheck this school out for your children. They have the highest VPK rating in the County.

  • We have only had positive experiences with Hand in Hand Academy. Our children have attended for three years and our family researched at least eight schools and visited four prior to making our decision to enroll. The teachers are amazing and we have always been treated warmly by administration. The education is beyond our expectation and the extra-curricular activities are outstanding. We highly recommend this school.

  • What a disappointment
    I have had my child at Hand in Hand for a couple of years now and it has gone down hill! Really a mess. Administration is useless and the new teachers are really lacking - especially in the upper grades.
