Back in the late ‘80s, my wife and I cultivated our search for alternative education experiences for our children. From our search we were able to develop and design programs that fostered a culture of education. In implementing an integrated system of education and environment, we were able to help channel children towards actually loving learning and looking forward to their daily educational experience.
In founding the Brooklyn Preparatory School in New York City, we facilitated exposure to the arts, reading and writing, horseback riding, swimming, museum tours, and technology. When our students graduated, they had been so enriched that they read at a second- or third-grade level. Throughout the past 20 years, our students have scored in the 90th percentile on the Stanford Achievement Test Series.
