Harambee Elementary School Reviews
When we were looking for a school for our daughter to start kindergarten in, we knew we didn't want just the run of the mill school for her. We searched and searched for what we have found to be the perfect school, for her, and for our entire family. Harambee is a year-round school. It is an Environmental and Community Cultures School. They instill the values of no person/race/sex/religion is better than any other, and everyone is accepted - period. They conduct a teaching method called "looping" where the kids are with the same teacher and classmates for two years in a row. K-1, 2-3, 4-5, then they move onto the middle school. Our daughter has just excelled at this school, and loves going every day!
