A Few Words from Happy Parents

“Tessa has been a wonderful experience for our entire family.  We see our daughter advancing on so many levels and get excited about the learning development she is receiving at this school. The staff is extremely responsible, dedicated and demonstrates a strong level of professionalism. We love the teacher to child ratio and the curriculum is far superior to anything else we’ve seen in Hoboken. Our daughter absolutely loves going to Tessa!”

Sienna’s Parents

“We are very pleased with the education Tessa has been providing for our son. We feel they offer an environment in which he can thrive and shine. In the few months he’s been there, his knowledge of Spanish has grown tremendously. We love hearing him count and sing in Spanish! And we can tell the teachers and administration care about each and every one of the students; he is genuinely happy to go to school each day. We are very happy to be a part of the Tessa family!”

Nicholas’s Parents

“The school did a wonderful job helping our son adjust to his very first school and his first experience being away from his parents. The classroom provided an environment where he was able to gain new friends and for the most part he looked forward to school most mornings. He has grown in confidence and we attribute that to the security he felt with his teachers. We are also very pleased with the language program. Our managed to actually pick up new languages in a very short period of time, often surprising us with a new song and even counted to 10 in French suddenly and unprompted within a short space of time. “
