As a Loudoun County Public School Teacher, I would say Golden Pond School (GPS) is the best! There is a big difference in the children that come from GPS. The students are very prepared, often ahead of the other children and are well-rounded. They are exposed to a lot of different experiences that other children are not, and their knowledge about Science and Social Studies is impressive! GPS children come to Elementary School reading, writing and knowing many sight words. A mother I know recently told me that it is worth every penny. I don’t know what the magic formula is at Golden Pond School, but it works! I currently have 3 students now from GPS and they are all above average students.
