We chose Academie Marie Claire because of its reputation as an environment where children were supported, nurtured and loved. My girls are making extraordinary progress because of the teachers, ... the administration: especially Jyoti, Steven ... the leadership of Mr Zephrin: who has never passed up an opportunity to inquire on the status of our family and offer words of wisdom and support to both me and the girls. No matter how busy, he finds the time to address every concern ... finally on Marie-Claire herself: for having the vision to create such a precious environment where children, no matter what is happening outside the walls of the school, can find a loving nurturing home where they feel safe to be everything they could possibly dream to be.

" We made a choice for our children, Académie Marie-Claire in Kirkland, a private educational establishment. Why? Some of us have had a bad experience with both public and others with private schools. Our choice of Académie Marie-Claire was greatly motivated, not due to the fact that is was a private school but, mainly because it offers a stimulating environment for children. The teaching staff and the director integrated elements of the reform all in keeping a well proven and approved teaching method. A method that is said traditional with justified success time after time... In fact, we have realized that our children take more pride in their work and are developing their self esteem in a context that aims towards excellence. " (original letter on file)

" I couldn't have ended this year ..., without expressing my gratitude and admiration that I have... I see my children fully express themselves, having learned French, English, Spanish, Math ... The quality of teaching is worthy of its mentions. My kids learned to write French and to speak it with exactitude. They know the grammar rules more than I do, and I went to public school without to ensure my integration. ... my gratitude is infinite. I hope to see an expansion in your school's future projects."

"I just wanted to take a minute to absolutely thank you for taking the time to meet with me yesterday. After leaving your office, I felt a huge burden lifted ... At the start, I was worried about her entry into grade X, because of the personal dreadness she had conveyed to me ... This is no longer the case ... the teachers she most dreaded have been patient, supportive and even confident in the children's abilities to succeed ... Lastly, I must convey my gratitude for your wonderful "balanced" perspective on any school issues that I have come to you with over the years. You have a blessed way of listening, empathizing and making people feel as though their "issues" are as important to you as they are to them ... many of us (parents) have felt more hopeful and positive in situations that may have otherwise left us feeling helplessly frustrated."
