  • Transitioning from a small daycare to K1 was a very tough transition, with many rules I didn't agree with, but my son still quickly fell in love with his teacher. This year (K2) is even better. The headmaster is a wonderful intelligent woman. The K2 classroom is open to parents, and it is great having the city library and the Pierce House (a historical museum) next door.

  • I am a proud graduate of the Kenny School Kindergarten, that put me on a path to Boston Latin School, Harvard, and a Master's at USC.
