I cannot say enough about the high quality care and education my children receive every day at Cadence Academy. The teachers are compassionate, creative, and motivated. My children look forward to seeing their friends and teachers each morning.

We absolutely love Cadence Academy. Between the amazing teachers and the people that go there, it just feels like one big family. We knew how great of a family Cadence Academy was when teachers our son has never had knew his name and would say hi. The willingness to be a part of your child’s life just comes naturally to them. They are always more than accommodating for your child’s needs. Our son had a speech therapist and they were excited to have them come to the school because it was a learning opportunity for them as well. When our son had a cast on his entire leg, they had the entire class sign it and even came up with creative solutions on making the cast easier for him at school.

Both of my children love this school. When we first moved to Iowa from out of state, we toured almost a dozen schools in the area. As soon as we walked into Cadence (Apple Tree at the time) we knew in our gut that we’d found the right place. There is a solid focus on academics, and the kids are learning new things everyday. There is also a warmth that is invaluable at this age. Every adult in the building knows my kids’ names, and that includes the administration and the chef. The kids are happy to go to school every day, and excited about the things they are learning and creating. We are thrilled with the school, and know we made the right choice.
