"My older son has been at Genius Kids Palo Alto for a little over a year now as a part-time student. In this time, he has accelerated in his academic knowledge, athletic proficiency, and socializing skills. When he entered school, we were still working on recognizing the alphabet. Now he can read, write, and recite poems and songs. He loves hip hop dancing and Soccer Shots with his friends. It is so hard to get him to leave! Miss Carol, Miss Fred, and the rest of the wonderful staff work very well with each other and with all the kids. My younger son will start going to Genius Kids soon. He can't wait to play with his brother and to spend more time with the teachers and students."

"Really wonderful preschool. My daughter has been attending full time for 1 year and bounces out of bed every morning to go to school. They have a great academic program along with plenty of time for play and fun. Ms. Carol and her staff are excellent teachers, kind, supportive and loving towards the kids"

""Genius Kids at the Palo Alto Campus team has really taught Vishvanath to read and comprehend what he is reading! Today, Vishvanath completed Raz Kids, Level C, a reading program for students in the PAUSD. While he has not yet completed the first semester of PK, he is reading on Level C which is a reading level for students in Kindergarten. After listening to, reading, recording and taking a quiz upon completion of each of the forty four, (44) books he read this month Vishvanath is now on Level D. We are so proud of his achievment and we know that he could not have become such a fantastic reader without the efforts of his teacher Ms Param and the whole team.""

"Your Genius Kid received a lesson on civics, and freedom of speech/civil disobedience this morning. Vishvanath, countered the protesters, on his on accord, by writing his message. We can't shackle a young mind with an opinion. Thanks for providing Vishvanath with the tools to help him express his thoughts through written and oral communication. Freedom of Speech"
