“The way AGS seamlessly picked up where it left off before March Break has not only been impressive, but extremely beneficial for the children to give them a little bit of normalcy in these unprecedented times. Our experience is only at the JK4 level, so I can only imagine how grateful the parents of older students are. How everything has transitioned and played out has been wonderful for us and I will genuinely be sad when this school year has come to an end. So, an extraordinary job well done to everyone for making this such a positive experience.”

- Kim R., Parent of Junior Kindergarten Student

“We find it amazing how well Aspengrove organized the switch to the online program. The students are engaged and the teachers are amazing! Kudos and a big thank you to all the teachers and admin staff.”
