  • Innovative and CreativeParent 03/30/2016
    We were very impressed with the school as we are near completing our first year at The Biome. Not only we were impressed with the philosophy of teaching but how the kids are adapting to what they are learning and how it affects us. The location of the school is central to the city so this attracts families all over St. Louis. The best part is the school accepts learners of any zip codes in the city, to provide equal opportunities of any socio-economic families of any background.
  • A great place for our learners Parent 03/14/2016
    This school is a wonderful place for children to attend. The curriculum taught by the school engages the children and infuses culture as well. The school is well diverse. I am happy with the education my daughter is receiving at the Biome.
