Review for The Gow School, South Wales, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is the second year that my son has attended the Gow summer program and as expected it was wonderful. He had been applying some of what he has learned during the summer to his current school and it seems to be helping. He is planning on attending again next year. The combination of academics and fun is what makes the program enjoyable for him. His 10 yr old sister wants to attend but was told that as long as her brother was going we would have to find something else for her. Nice that they are fighting over attending school...

Review for The Gow School, South Wales, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has been having a hard time with his ability to focus, organize and be motivated to do his school work. Last summer I was researching some options for us during the summer and came across Gow's summer program. We went to the open house to see if Gow would be a good fit for him. On the drive out to the school my first thought was this is pretty far, after hearing about the program and listening to the administrators talk the next thought was can he start today. The thing that made the most impact on me (and made me cry) was when Mr. Salerano said something like , we want your children to not feel like they are the dumbest kid in class, they are smart and capable. My son loved the program, is doing much better in school and will continue to attend the summer program. THANK YOU GOW!!!
