"I came to Knox as a seventh grader and received amazing support to build my English skills. The Knox administrators and staff truly care about every student’s success and are highly qualified to deliver the best education that is possible. My goal was to get into my dream school – New York University – and the education I received at Knox helped me achieve an Early Decision to NYU. My parents want to give a big thanks to Knox for the invaluable education, and it has been my pleasure to be a Knox student!"
