Mackintosh Academy Ratings & Reviews

"Disappointing. Poor leadership. The school revolves around highly sensitive boys to the exclusion of a healthy environment for everyone else. When they say ""Boulder needs Mack like Harry needed Hogwarts!"" they forget to consider Hermione."

"There are far better private schools in Boulder, for parents looking for an exceptional education for their children. If you are looking for a school to challenge your intelligent student, you may want to look elsewhere. If you are looking for a school to support your child, who may need alternative learning, and 2E support, then Mackintosh may be a good fit. When we interviewed, we were looking for a school that would engage our child, who excelled in math and reading, and wasn't being challenged at their previous school. We were told that Mack is an ""IB school that serves gifted and creative students."" Mack's definition of gifted is misleading. Mackintosh feels to like a 2E school that masquerades as an IB school. The administration seem to go out of their way to cover up the 2E reputation that Mack is developing. Also, if your child needs a daytime place to act out and bully other students with very little disciplinary action, then sign them up. But be prepared to spend a lot on tuition, for a mediocre education. You will metaphorically pay for a Mercedes, but get a used Kia. Bullying and acting out is very accepted at this school. Mackintosh employs a full time Psychologist for a reason. When we switched our child to another school, we quickly found out how far behind they were academically. Shockingly so. Even behind public school educational standards. The good news is that our child, at the new school, is so happy to be in an environment where there aren't constant interruptions in class, with children acting out, and bullying, that now our child is actually learning. I do have to agree with other reviewers, about the teachers, who are compassionate, and supportive. Mack employs some exceptional teachers. You will soon learn however, that there are so many issues with which they have to contend, and double standards that exist within the classrooms. If you are wealthy or influential, and have a child who needs extra help, and don't care if they act up, or are disruptive, then Mack is a great fit. If you are a parent who is looking for an outstanding education for your intelligent learner, who does not need alternative support, then there may be better schools to fit those needs.If the Administration at Mackintosh been honest from the beginning, I wouldn't be writing this. BUYER BEWARE!"

Absolutely amazing. Our family will stay at Mackintosh for as long as we can. We love JJ, Jenny, and every teacher we have met. Totally in awe of Mack. The community is our home.

We are so pleased we found Mack. We wish every child could experience a school like this. The students are so interesting and bright and curious. The teachers and admin go out of their way to provide a safe, supportive, intellectually challenging and stimulating environment. We feel that our older children had the time and space to grow into themselves without the harsh culture in most middle schools. When your kids look forward to going to school every day, life is so much more manageable. Thanks, Mack.

Initially we loved it, but over time there were many issues that became apparent. It’s incredibly small, which means that socially, kids don’t have many options for friends. They do some things well, mainly because of teachers, but the administration is inexperienced. I think they are in over their heads and haven’t put in systems that work yet. They also are not consistent with what they say and we left not trusting the leadership. They are more interested in saving face than delivering on any of their listed values. It ended up not being a safe environment for my child.
