I think our school is great! The small class sizes are definitely one of the best things about the school and I really love how the school gets so involved in the community! There have been community projects for the local humane society, our soldiers over sea and fun event nights for the entire community. They also have amazing field trips that tie directly into their curriculum. Some things I would like to see more of is extracurricular clubs and typical events a public school would host for the children.
Havasu Preparatory Academy has amazing staff and very involved parents. When the school needs something that is not in their budget to purchase, the familes rally together to help raise money. The teachers are clearly at HPA becuase they are dedicated to their profession, not for the money. I highly recommend this school to any family who wants to see their child taught by caring professionals who go the extra mile to make sure kids come first!
My children have always EXCEEDED the AIMS Assessment tests using a Common Core Curriculum for two years straight. HPA is developing an AP program. AP classes require the type of high-level calculating and critical thinking that you'll encounter in your first year of college. If you can write essays and solve problems successfully for an AP class, you've mastered many of the skills that will lead to success in college. HPA is in year two of AVID. AVID students are more likely than their peers to successfully complete rigorous academic courses, with more than 73 percent of the 2012 AVID seniors reporting taking at least one higher-level course, such as AP, IB or Cambridge, and 61 percent taking the corresponding exam. AVID students complete courses required for admission into four-year colleges or universities at a rate consistently higher than their peers.
This school is small enough for teachers and parents to know what is going on with the children. I appreciate the personalized attention the children receive. The staff seem to work well with each other and parents.
I have two children currently attending this school, it is outstanding. It is a close knit community and parents are very involved. The class sizes are small and the teachers are dedicated to make sure the children are understanding the content. I highly recommend HPA, as I've had a positive experience. Children who have behaviorial problems probably aren't best suited for this school, if the child has 6 problems they're asked to leave the school permentaly. Obviously, it's not minor things that would cause expulsion; being disrespectful to a teacher continuously, fighting, etc. The school has high expectations for their students AND their parents. If you just want to drop your kid off and pick them up...again, this may be the wrong school for you, most parents are involved in volunteering or on the PTSA. The school teaches organizational skills and college prep, which sounds crazy but it is amazing. Give your child the best education possible, get involved in ANY school, but I stand behind this school 100%.
My daughter attends school at Havasu Prep and I have to say that I am impressed with how much knowledge she has gained just in this year alone. Ms. Scott is an amazing Kindergarten teacher, we will miss her next year! I would recommend this school for any parent looking for smaller class sizes and close knit atmosphere.
We love this school. The school leader is amazing as are the teachers and staff. Any problems are dealt with immediately and fairly. They are very friendly and can tell that they are very dedicated to the students and the parents. I am so glad that we enrolled our daughter here.
