Parents looking for the items listed below, may be challenged by THRiVE's philosophy and may feel it is not the right place for their family

  1. Those who treasure social prestige and really prefer a traditional education.
  2. Those who aren't sure their child is ready yet for the responsibility and struggles-and occasional tears-of truly independent learning (and may be right).
