If you are looking for a school that will do more than just house your child in a building while you work, THIS IS IT. My daughter began in this school but a few months and she was coming home saying words in French, doing sign language, sounding out words, using a broader vocabulary, teaching me what she knows about History, Geography, Math, Penmanship (As she would say) and so many other things! More importantly, she loves attending!!!To me that means that education is more than just learning but the teachers make it fun and continues to grab the children's attention. I would recommend WKA to anyone I know hands down!!! They are enrolling now for summer so if I were you, I'd pick up the phone now!!!!

What can I say about WKA? I love the warm feeling that my child receives EVERY MORNING. The teachers a great! The kids learn so much at the school. They teach the children so much from book knowledge to how to be successful in school. They take time out to work with the kids personally. They have a wonderful staff and I really can't say anything bad about them!

I love this school! My daughter started in January and has learned so much this school year. I love that she is learning how to properly conduct herself in the classroom and that she is having a great time. She never wants to leave and can't wait to go back to school. The teachers and staff are excellent and I feel that my child is safe and well cared for. I planned to send her to public kindergarten, but she begged to stay at WKA for kindergarten! She has done so well could I say no!!!

WKA is definitely the best kept secret on the Peninsula. If you want your child to have a sturdy foundation and be more than ready to read by Kindergarten, then Warwick Kid's Academy is the place for your special gift. They love, nurture and teach your child while preparing them for what lies ahead.

My older son has been in gifted pull out programs since Kindergarten. This is due in part to all the hard work and fun learning he did at WKA. My younger daughter is currently attending the school. Let's just say this. It brings tears to my eyes most days because I know that they love her and that she is nurtured. My babygirl was very reserved. Now, in just 4 months of attending the school she is developing an extensive vocabulary, has been exposed to colors, shapes, etc. She has learned several songs,the staff all know her by name and are very interested in her success!

Warwick Kids Academy laid the groundwork and foundation for my daughter's education. She started there as a 3 year old and flourished in their curriculum. She was more than prepared when she left the school to start first grade. The preparations that she received helped her to score in the 96th percentile in all subject areas tested in the Stanford Achievement Tests. WKA is the best kept secret on the peninsula. I am just sad that we moved from the area and my son will not be able to attend and get his educational foundation there.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
