Greg Augustyn, Vice President

This is our fourth year at Barnard and we have been very happy with our experience. Our son Gregory is in third grade and our daughter Isabella is in second grade. They both enjoy participating in after school activities as well being involved in basketball, swimming, gymnastics, taekwondo and ballet. In addition to Mandarin, they both speak Spanish and Isabella also speaks French. Our family enjoys traveling during school breaks, opting for the cold and snow during December and someplace exotic during the Spring.
