Despite the mostly rave reviews I heard of Independence before my child attended, I was thoroughly unimpressed with this school. There was no attempt to work with my child, who is only slightly behind developmentally. My child's few weaknesses were emphasized, while a multitude of strengths were barely acknowledged. I heard less often from my child's teacher than I did from the development office asking for monetary donations. Overall, it was a very negative environment, which is not at all what I want for my child. If you have an intelligent, creative child who may require a little extra help, don't expect Independence to provide it. There are plenty of other, better private schools in the area.

The school has been losing enrollment for a number of years, and after having a child enrolled at the school, I can see why. If you have a happy, creative, intelligent child and you want the child to continue to have those qualities, you should avoid sending your children here. The school will react very negatively to any perceived weakness, even if it is something common for the age group, while downplaying your child's strengths. There are many better options out there that have teachers and programs that are actually centered around the children themselves and not some rigid program.

I attend the Independence School and find that it caters to people with all different ways of learning. Although those who attend the school are very intelligent, any that struggle with the education receive help and solutions to aid them. The teachers are always willing to volunteer their time to give extra help and no one is ever without a smile. Extra-curricular activities at the school such as drama, Math League, Odessy of the Mind, and sports all are excellent and provide a broader learning experience for memories that last a lifetime! I would highly reccomend the Independence School to anyone wishing to be challenged everyday but willing to make friends and memories that last a lifetime!!! =)

We found that the Independence School had a very strong academic program and very involved parents as well as nice facilities.
