  1. My son (7) goes to VanDamme, and I can tell you from personal experience that both the inductive method of teaching and the no-homework policy (other than a little reading in a book which his whole reading group reads, discusses, and analyzes together) are great. He's smart as a whip, and has an incredibly active "social life" which is definitely helped by his not having to do a bunch of homework. Plus, his friends who are the same age, but who are in the public school system (a "Distinguished School" in fact) are blown away by the type of work he is doing compared to them -- like long division, grammar, literary analysis, scientific experimentation, history above and beyond memorizing disconnected facts which they forget by the next week, etc.
