    Current Parent/Guardian/Year Graduated: Current student

    Please share a few thoughts about your experiences with The Storm King School: Could not ask for more as a parent of a creative student athlete trying to prepare for college and life! The campus is set on a beautiful mountain. There is truly a feel of community at this school and my child is flourishing. The individual attention and small classes has helped my child excel. There are plenty of sports, arts and school activities to choose from so every child can find something they like. Great community service opportunities as well. Best decision was to send my child here!
