"Our daughter attended SchoolPlus in Queens, NY. We loved the school and so when we relocated to Seattle we were very sad to lose access to SchoolPlus' unique approach to learning. Other enrichment programs in Seattle were not the same. We were thrilled when SchoolPlus announced virtual classes and we joined right away. Together with a school friend in Seattle and cousin from the East coast we formed a small class. Now the three girls can't wait for their weekly math lesson! The teacher is wonderful - she is very experienced and custom designs a thoughtful, engaging and provocative lesson each week. The platform is excellent and gives the teacher and student useful tools while maintaining the natural flow of a traditional classroom. We could not be more excited about SchoolPlus Virtual Classroom and highly recommend it to anyone searching for a deeper learning experience for their child."
“We came to School-Plus in 2013 when my oldest son was 9y.o. and now my youngest, who is 5 y.o. now, proudly joined classes there! As a parent, I would love to give my kids a chance to have an opportunity to accelerate their learning, get a deeper knowledge of subjects and build a complex and efficient problem-solving skills. And School-Plus is covering all those and even beyond! Small class sizes are making possible for teachers spend more time with individual kids. Kids know that they will get help if they needed. Robert took English classes before and improved his writing tremendously. And he says himself that School-Plus Math program is helping him a lot to feel confident in his regular school math class. My boys feel proud of their academic achievements and that is the key to success in general, I deeply believe. And most of the credits for that I give to School-Plus. They have well-balanced Math program, which covers all topics kids are learning in public schools, what helps with grades, but the same time they work beyond the standard minimum and giving chance to learn different approaches. We came through a friend referral. Teachers are amazing not just because of their professional level but for their dedication to kids in their classes I see. My kids feel very comfortable there and highly respect their teachers!”.
"We came to SchoolPlus in 2003, just after moving to New Jersey: our daughter Julie was 11 and our son Mitchell was 3, and we stayed with the program until 2015. It still feels weird not to come there every Sunday like we have done for 12 years! We were looking not for a tutoring program, but for a place that would allow our children to go above and beyond the school mathematics and English classes Needless to say, we met and surpassed our goals! Both our kids moved on to the take honor and AP classes in school and both of them took the AP Russian Prototype exam and passed it with the grade of 5. Our daughter was accepted in NYU and 2010 and graduated in 2014 magna cum laude. Our son was a winner of MOEMs and math Kangaroo Olympiad for many years thanks to the marvelous teacher Mary Marvin. We cannot thank Mary Marvin enough for Mitchell's score of 800 in subject math SAT and for giving him necessary foundations for achieving the composite top score of 36 on the ACT. The classes in SchoolPlus are small and each student gets the individual attention. The math program moves at a good pace and precedes the topics the kids learn in regular school afterward; therefore ensuring success and excellent grades in schoolIt is due to the influence of Ms. Marvin and Mr. Berger that our daughter Julie chose to teach as her career!"
"My daughter (a third grader) absolutely loves her online math class at SchoolPlus! It has been both challenging and fun, and it has made her more excited about math in just a few short months. The virtual classroom is very natural and enjoyable for her, and the teacher has been amazing. And I love the convenience of having such an enriching after-school activity at home!! "
"I have been involved with School-Plus for 13 years, and I have always found it to be a wonderful place where learning is meaningful and fun at the same time… Math classes at School-Plus were indispensable. With them, I was able to get a solid background in algebra, geometry and trigonometry before we covered them in public school. When we got to those subjects in school, I was well prepared."

"We are visiting School Plus for years. We first came here when my daughter was 2. She is almost 12 now. In School Plus we tried many different classes, for example, Math and Drama, Art and Chess. .. students develop different math approaches and solve wide range of challenging problems at these Math classes. As a result, my daughter was among the winners on some Math Olympiads. My son is 6 now and enjoying being there. So, for us School Plus is not just some additional lessons on Sundays. It is rather family quality time. We are very grateful to School Plus for the opportunity to be the part of this community."
“We have joined the School Plus family when our oldest son was three years old. Thus, it the fall of 2006 our son joined three classes for very young learners We loved what we saw - all classes were aged appropriate, with highly qualified teachers who cared for the children and were flexible in their approaches to make sure that little kids learn without losing interest and drive. A couple of years later our twins have joined the school. Now that the children are older, the focus has shifted to more academic driven subjects, namely, mathematics. School Plus teachers are offering in-class support, online work, a variety of assignments, and flexible approach to building the programs of study. Throughout the years, we have seen our children grow and mature. Part of this success definitely belongs to SchoolPlus. We like the fact that the school involves parents in the teaching and learning process, it allows us to be a part of our children's growing up and shows us that all our children are unique and require different methods of teaching (event talking to each of them!). The lines of where schoolplus helps the children and where we do are blurred and that what makes it such a great experience. We all work as a team. Currently, all three of our children take honors classes in mathematics and in science, two of the three are in honors classes in Language Arts. Using their math skills in a variety of ways in and out of class, allowed the kids to think more about what they encounter as they go along in their learning. Participating in various math competitions allowed them to learn that what they do each and every day matters on many different levels. One of them is relying on oneself and working individually to succeed. Teachers like Mary Marvin, who always give challenging unorthodox work to the young make the learning exciting. Kids learned to love challenge and are not afraid to encounter it in their schooling and in daily life. Many of our friends and many of our children's friends are those families who attend or used to attend the classes at SchoolPlus .
We have spent countless Sundays at SchoolPlus. Without events like these, without our friends and without caring administration it would have have been impossible to sustain this regiment for years. We would recommend School_Plus to our friends! It is always on our minds and we invite anyone who would like to experience the joys of shared learning to join us.”
"Our family has spent Sundays at SchoolPlus New Brunswick for the past 13,5 years. A few years ago, as we were leaving home for SchoolPlus, my daughter said “Mom, do you realize that people who see us go somewhere every Sunday think that we’re going to church?” And it struck me as a great analogy - in the sense that just as the church is a community, SchoolPlus is a community of parents and teachers highly dedicated to best interests of the children. Math teachers are working on providing a deep understanding of concepts and challenging problem solving. SchoolPlus helped us to give our children a great early start. A solid foundation in Math in elementary school, preparation and successful participation in math olympiads from 3rd grade on gave them confidence to attempt any kind of challenging problems. One of my children is a math and programming “nerd” while the other one is more science and humanities centered, but they have both benefitted from the math program - my son getting the extra challenge he needed and my daughter getting nearly perfect score on the SAT and not being afraid to go and take challenge of AMC-12 competition in her HS, which gave a panic attack to her valedictorian friend, who was always earning perfect grades, but unable to think outside the box. After so many years, not going to SchoolPlus on Sundays feels strange, as if something is “not quite right” in our life."
