Reviews

  • When my older child was 2, she went there Monday through Friday for 4 months. She started speaking Russian after that. Then starting at 3 she started Saturday program, which is fun and intense at the same time. She learns a ton and always asks to come back.

  • The academic program is phenomenal. My daughter learned so much for the time she is going to Metaphor and improved in many areas of development. I can see how teachers takes their time in working with kids, preparing them for holiday concerts, how much effort they put into all of that.

  • We do like this school! Our kid could not speak Russian 2 years ago when she first went to Metaphor. Now 2 years later she is practically fluent! This was the whole reason for going to this school.

    Parents

  • We receive daily reports on the conducted activities, class discussions. Report also provides type of food served that day and child’s reception of food. These reports help to connect with child’s day activities and provide insight on their behaviors and traits that are not typically seen by parents.

  • We absolutely love this place! Super loving, professional, educational, fun. The language and culture immersion is done in an effortless way, and will serve as a terrific building block for being truly bilingual later in life.

  • Two of my kids attended Metaphor school for several years now and we absolutely love it! The teachers are amazing! The school program not only has Russian language, it has Math, Art, Theater, Music, and more! Their concerts are so creative and always well prepared. Their rooms and playgrounds are beautiful, the food is great.
