Anthony - J 200 in Math


Anthony is a diligent 9th-grade student who does not give up easily. So proud to see you get to J200! Our next goal is for you to complete all of the high school levels of the Kumon Math Program.

Dean - one of our youngest student


Kumon has been one of the best choices we have made for our son.  The staff members in North Haven are wonderful! They are very knowledgeable and go above and beyond to help make our son comfortable in what he is learning.  They are continuously individualizing the program based on his needs so that he is able to move through at his own pace.  We want him to be confident so that he knows he is capable of doing anything. Kumon is helping us instill those skills and showing him that learning can be fun."

"I like Kumon because it is teaching me how to read my Magic Tree House books and because I can read to my kindergarten class friends.  I like the sticker chart for my homework pages too because I can earn rewards!" 
-Dean, age 5

Brandon reaches a significant milestone!!


Congratulations Brandon!! By reaching “Level G by Grade 4” — two years ahead of grade level — Kumon gives students an edge when they need it most. Getting ahead does not happen overnight. It usually takes many years of sustained effort — but it will really pay off!

Brandon joined Kumon in January of 2014 and has been very consistent in developing his foundation skills with Kumon. Brandon says Kumon “lets me stay ahead in my class, and helps me better understand things related to math and reading."

"Kumon is a good way to keep kids occupied and have them learn at the same time, it gets them prepared for what's coming ahead," says Tommy, Brandon's dad. Tommy enrolled both his boys, Brandon & Austin in Kumon about 2 years ago and with their dedication and perseverance they are doing Kumon work much ahead of their grade level. 

By keeping his skills sharp, Brandon will be able to complete the Kumon material for high school Math in 6th grade - Kumon recognizes this milestone as Level J by 6. Way to go Brandon!!

Lily G by 5

Lily G by 5

Congratulations to Lily for completing the required work skills in Pre-algebra by 5th Grade and reaching her G by 5 status.

Including excerpts from her School teacher -

In Math, Lillian is still holding her own with an A in Math just past the mid-point of Term 2.  Lillian has done an excellent job on the first two unmodified chapter tests from our textbook series, Math in Focus.  These tests are based on the concepts in each chapter, but extend the thinking past the computation or concept of a skill into application and problem solving.  Lillian holding an A average here is fantastic!  
Lillian’s effort remains outstanding!  She is focused, energetic, motivated and really a wonderful student in Math class.  I am really pleased with her progress to date! 

Joel G By 5

G by 5 Joel

A very well deserving student - Joel! He exhibits tremendous dedication and concentration with his Kumon work. He earned his Level G (Pre-algebra) by 5th grade award this summer. Congratulations Joel! We look forward to your program completion! 

A thank you note


I wanted to personally thank you for all you’ve done for my children.  About 2 years ago, we noticed my daughter was falling behind in math.  She was 1 full grade level behind.  Now she’s ~6 months ahead of grade level and made the honor roll with a 92.5 average and an “A” in math.

My son is also doing great!  He’s ~6 months of grade level and working with 5th graders (as a 4th grader) at school in math. 

You and the Kumon model have really helped the kids so much!  Thank you for all you continue to do!!

Thank you,
