I have a child that attended this school for 3 years (1st - 3rd grade)and one who attended K and 1st as well. I believe that this school is okay for children who are accelerated in learning, however, if you have a child who may be needing extra assistance or learns with different modalities this is not an appropriate placement. As expectations are that each child keep up with the class and there is no room for slow/different learners. Academically, they use top notch materials. However, extracurricular is severely lacking. There is no form of arts, other than what the teacher can work into her lessons. There is a music program that is below standard as well. The learning and appreciation of music is not there. Parent involvement is average. Children eat OUTSIDE in the heat.
If you are looking for a sound foundation for your childs education, look no further. The administration and staff are extremely commited to providing the absolute best education hands down. This is my childs second year here and I cannot say enough about the strides he has made in reading and math. The campus is nice and small, very clean and has a great community feel.
This is a wonderful school. It is a back to basic type learning. Classes are small too.
This school is the best thing to happen to my children. I had 2 children attend Challenger last year, one in 2nd grade and one in Kindergarten. They are both reading at higher levels and their lanuguage skills are through the roof. Also, they enjoy the small, safe environment of the school. They will be attending this year and we are looking forward to it very much!
I have two children in this school. They were in Kindergarten and 1st grade this year. I couldn't be happier with the teachers and administration of the school. They were all warm and friendly, as well as organized and committed to education. I would gladdly recommend them to any parent.
