We have only positive accolades for Caurus Academy. The entire staff from administration to teaching assistants seem to genuinely care about the students. Academics are top notch and challenge students at an age appropriate level. Communication between the parents, students and staff is encouraged and more than welcomed. The school promotes positivity, kindness, self-motivation and personal responsibility among its students and families. Our family definitely feels a strong connection with the school and our other children can't wait to attend Caurus Academy.
I do not recommend; some teachers are horrible. We transferred our child out of Caurus Academy.
our school is a dynamic school! always in great communication with the parents. my kids love there teachers. The teachers are amazing and I love building relationships with them everyday. I would recommend his school to any one!
This school is the best I have found in the Anthem area. My kids have been to Anthem Elementary, Sunset Ridge and Desert Mountain and by far this school out ranks the others. My children are happy and learning. They are all making A and B's because the Teachers and staff work with them to get them where they need to be. Mrs. Rides is an amazing Principal. She loves the kids and works with Parents to make sure they are in the best learning environment possible. All the Teachers at Caurus are amazing and the Art Teacher, well she is a real sweat heart and an amazing lady. She encourages the kids to be creative and shows them how to express themselves through art. If you haven't checked out Caurus Academy you are really missing out.
Excellent school! Can't say enough about it. My daughter was there for 2 years before leaving at the start of the 2012-2013 for another school she had been on a wait list for. The new school was not a good fit for her and she was fortunate enough to be able to return after winter break. All I can say is everyone from Admin to previous teachers welcomed her back with such enthusiasm. My daughter once again looks forward to and enjoys going to school. Check into Caurus if you looking for a school where everyone knows you child's name and has that special, warm and welcoming feeling.
LOVE this school! I have 2 children attending and couldn't be happier. The staff is excellent and my 4th grader went from always requiring help with homework to working independently! She is challenged and engaged and making straight A's! My other child is in Kindergarten and absolutely loves it! She loves going to school and loves doing homework. It's so refreshing to see my children excited about learning!
My daughter attended Caurus Academy for the 2011-2012 school year. She excelled in all of her subjects. The most important aspect for me was that she had some health issues that required a 504 plan and the staff could not have been more accommodating or genuinely concerned about helping my daughter succeed. Her teacher, Ms. Rides, Mr. Taubman and Meisha (the best front office employee I have ever had the pleasure to know) were all amazing in their support and kindness.
I attended caurus before it even became caurus academy I attended from 3rd grade all the way until sixth my brother attened first grade there and we both loved it caurus academy is an execelent school
I have always had positive things to say about this school and teachers until the fifth grade teacher came along he is an unconcerned uncaring teacher I use teacher loosely because he doesnot teach I would be hard pressed to tell you what my child learned from him this year he is absolutly the worst teacher Caurus has had .I feel sorry for next years group of fifth graders.
I love this school. The best staff! As a parent you want to know how your child is doing and what he or she needs to work on to improve academically and socially. This school works with the child and the parent to enhance your child's desire and ability to work hard to be the best they can be. Only wish they would open one at Carefree and I-17 too! This has been a long way for me to drive before and after work every day but my child is worth it! Excellent before and after care program too! I don't only love this school, but so does my son!
I LOVE THIS SCHOOL! My son have attended for 2 years going on 3. He's had caring teachers that keep me informed of his progress or when he messing up. I like to know that so I can DO MY JOB as a parent more effectively. I would rather nip any problems in the bud then only hear about it during Parent Teachers meetings. My daughter is going to attend this Fall and I look forward to meeting her teacher, my son's teacher and saying hello to a Wonderful Principal that knows her students by Name. AWESOME! I am from NYC public Schools so I Demand a higher educational standard for MY kids here in AZ. Caurus Academy fits that Bill!
I love the school because of the great teachers. I am very involved in my child's education, so I do like receiving calls from teacher advising me of progress. That way come report card time you are not shocked by your childs grade. You will always know where your child stands academically. As for the principal, I dont have much to say.
Caurus Academy's New school in Anthem is Such a Huge improvement! Although my son has had some behavioral problems, His teacher, the staff and especially the Principal Ms Rhodes has been so helpful to us to resolve his problems. He is getting better everyday and I am very grateful to Caurus Academy. Keep up the Great work!
We got a very negative teacher , can't keep up with the kids behavior . If you love calls from the teacher for lack of her leadership and control issue , maybe this is the ideal school . NOT FOR ME .Teacher will call at anytime during the day till night!! no matter for whatever issue . Teacher does not respect the parent, not tactful . ONE NEGATIVE FOR THE K/1 teacher .
Let me put it simply, this school is terrible. I attended for three years and i was failing every year, I'm a freshmen in high school, but right now I should be in sixth grade this school messed me up so bad. My 4th/5th grade teacher was a huge feminist, almost though she didn't want the male students there. I'm telling you, DON'T even consider this school
Our daughter started at Caurus Academy in August 2010 and she loves her new school. Her teacher is wonderful and she learning so much more than she did at her neighborhood public school. I love the fact that there is a classroom aide and that parents volunteer in the classroom.
We have been very happy at The Montessori at Anthem. The teachers are respectful of the children and expect respect from the children. The children become self motivators which is what Montessori is based upon, in turn building self esteem and self respect, all while growing and actually enjoying the day. The teachers are watchful of the children and help them along the way with good relationship techniques and with choosing challenging work. The projects my children come home with are amazingly detailed while also fun. The children are learning so much more than they are even aware of being in the Montessori environment. We are glad to have this school in Anthem.
My daughter is in the k/1 class. The teachers are amazing, the staff is wonderful. Best of all my daughter loves going to school, and is learning so much more then she would at the public school.
I have been at this school for over 3 years and have seen so much progress with the new staff. I am very pleased with the progress and the fact that they have P.E. and also spanish this year. This school is great and the staff really cares about the students!!
This is my sons first year at Anthem Montessori. He is in one of the 4/5/6 grade rooms. He likes it so much more than the public school he was attending. His teachers are wonderful. The principal is great. He does have a lot of homework and he has to do a lot of projects but he is so much happier this year.
