The Craig School Ratings & Reviews

July 12, 2018 Submitted by a parent
I have just had my second child graduate from The Craig School this year. Our journey began 6 years ago when my son joined Craig in 4th grade. He went from a student with no confidence in his ability to learn to someone who knows that he can. This is due to the amazing faculty and the application of great teaching/learning techniques, organizational tools and a caring atmosphere. I took great comfort when my daughter began having trouble with learning that The Craig School was there to change that for her. She joined Craig in seventh grade, blossomed and has graduated. She has gained confidence in her academic abilities as well her artistic ones. As a parent, I appreciate The Craig School’s willingness to find new ways to help the children. The mindfulness program that they introduced this year is a wonderful example. And the incorporation of STEM into the science curriculum over the past few years has been great.Both of my children are now attending The Craig High School - with my son just completing a wonderful freshman year and daughter entering. I know with the help of The Craig School, they will both continue to have success in their academic journey to becoming lifelong learners. I feel blessed to have found The Craig School for my kids!

We attended the Craig School for one year, then moved to another school. Simply put, the Craig School does a great job with its reading education but is mediocre in other subjects and is a terrible social environment. While my child’s reading progressed significantly in one year, the Craig School was damaging socially and emotionally. Academically, the science and social studies classes are very weak. The teachers rely heavily on videos/movies to teach the students. Math is ok, but if your child has above average math abilities the school has no way to push them. Socially, the school was full of bullying. If you tour the school, be sure to observe unstructured times when the students are not in class. For example, ask to see the morning drop off. 100 students go into the gym together with little adult oversight while they wait for first period. It’s a chaotic experience that students undergo every morning as they start the day. Lunch, recess and after school are similarly chaotic and full of bullying. Summer camp counselors are college students not equipped to handle the social issues of special ed students. Social media was out of control. The administrators are out of touch with modern media and did nothing to stop students taking videos of each other and posting them on social media during the day. Ask the teachers or administrators how Craig teaches students to use social media responsibly.If you consider this school, ask how many students stay for 1-2 years in fourth and fifth grades and then leave. I think it’s a shockingly high number and related to out of touch administrators and social problems. If your child might need a counselor be sure to talk with the counselors on your tour. They are very weak. And then there’s the diversity issues. Look around. Look for teachers who are any other ethnicity than white. If you are brave, ask how many non-white teachers have ever worked at the Craig School. This whiteness has an impact on the students. I observed double standards for white and black students and Craig will teach your child that white students get a pass and black students cause “incidents.” Whatever ethnicity you are, this is a serious problem. If your child needs reading help and you are willing to compromise their social and emotional health then the Craig School will work for you. Otherwise, there’s other good schools out there.

I love this school they have great resources as well as a super cool basketball program! For a so called dyslexic kid like me this school uses the multi-sensory thing that I enjoy! and what's right for me.

My daughter just finished her first year at Craig, and it has been amazing. She is a happy girl that has learned to read and has been given strategies to help her write and organize. I'm so grateful for this school, the teachers and the warm community.

This school improved my reading and writing skills by two grade levels in only and short amount of time. I would highly recommend this school to everybody who is trying to get an individualised aprouched to learning. The hole school is just a big family and all the teachers and students new my name, even on the first day of school my teachers and dean knew my name witch surprised me.
