Brand new classroom/gymnasium buildings for Academy students are great. Small class sizes and Block Hours help students better focus with teachers while learning new concepts. Good teaching/mentoring combined with the backing of the school's national accreditation gives my family the assurance that we are looking for when considering college preparatory schools. Update - my graduate was offered admission to University of Massachusetts, University of Florida and U of A as a mathematics major (so yes, the foundation is here at Telesis for your child).
Telesis took my kids in the middle of the school year and worked with them individually enough to pass their classes with awesome grades. My children attend there again this year. They worked with them at whatever level they were on including extensive class participation and sports and have sent them in the right way of not just a good education, but also great life skills that will mold them into educated men. I thank them for the opportunity.
Great school, low class sizes, motivated and caring teachers, sport activities after school programs, small family like enviroment, dress code. Safe, no nonsense, free solution if you don't like the drama at the public school.
Telesis... well, for starters, it is a good school with teachers who care about their students and their education. I am a former student and I am for several reasons; this year, Telesis has changed their ways drastically to where it's not even enjoyable to wake up every morning to go to school. It is small; people are into other people's business in which causes a lot of fighting and unnecessary reprimands. Thirdly, I know the school is on a limited budget because they aren't funded like the public schools, but you'd think after twenty years of operation, they'd be more developed. The school is ran by a rent-a-cop who can be benign at times, but really doesn't know how to run a balanced school. The dean however is excellent. He is a kind man and one who surely cares about students and their education. He makes sure things get done and standards are met and beyond. If anything, he should run that school fully. Telesis does deserve more funds I will say because it isn't all that bad of a school. Just be cautious before you decide to send your child here.
I love the curriculum , the perspective they teach the kids for future leaders, 'Character comes first' 'treat other as you like to be treated' My kids love the size of the classroom and every day they learn something new and move on to the next level even if some times are to young.
Telesis is one of the best schools in Lake Havasu and I think that it is great that character comes first
Great School, teachers give extra effort, very little student discipline problems, administration very involved with daily operation.
Telesis has been an excellent experience for my child. The caring teachers, uniformity dress code, and low student-teacher ratio makes my child's education most rewarding.
Telesis has really rude staff. Not only the office workers, but also the teachers, whom are known to blow up on a moments notice. Don't send you child to Telesis. Believe me I used to go there and I experienced many inconveniences. No one had a graduation organized for me until the very last minute. I would say Telesis is a disgrace to professionalism. Please send your child to one of the many public schools in Lake Havasu if you want them in a good environment for learning.
I attended Telesis several years ago, it gave me some very good experiences and yet the bad seemed to out weigh the good. The teachers were highly motivated and very encouraging, however the schools curriculm had to be dumbed down in order to make the material even slightly reach the students, who weren't nessesarily the brightest tools in the shed. The low budget and the unmotivated and troubled students made the experience too much to handle and I eventually left to persue greater challenges. Personally I believe that maybe in another ten years the school may be close to establishing its goal, but in the meantime the school has much growth and improvement to undergo before it could ever be considered a quality school.
My daughter started Telesis in 1st grade 2000. Her teacher was Ms. Pawlac. She is awesome. She gave Brittanie a great foundation to build her learning skills on. Awesome school. Ms Vosler
I have 3 children in this school. Overall I think this school needs some better discipline and more supervision with stricter consequences. I feel this school does not have high enough standards academically and does not provide a safe environment.
