Himmelstein: Amazing first year at Peak School

Vicki and Richard Himmelstein, Breckenridge

We want to express our gratitude to The Peak School and its incredibly motivating educational program and staff.

As parents of three children who spent their previous academic years at a college prep academy on the East Coast before moving to Breckenridge four years ago, we are so impressed with the knowledge our son has taken away this year from The Peak School. He comes home bubbling with information and excited about what he has learned that day. He is much more inquisitive about the world in which we live, due to the gifted insights of his teachers. He has learned far more Spanish in one year than the seven previous years altogether.

With our son having two older siblings, our family has had many years of experience in both public and private education. Finding a motivating and interesting place to learn has always been a bit of a challenge. Our youngest son has always done well in school, but was never excited about learning. This has completely changed this year; The Peak School has reached him in a way that is incredibly impressive.

The Peak School has far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to The Peak School being in his life for the remainder of his secondary education. We feel very strongly that he will be very well prepared for college and beyond.
