We love this school. We switched from a public school 2 years ago, and chose to go the charter school route and we couldn't have picked a better place for our kids. They love their teachers, and classmates. Our kids seem to be doing much better now that they are happy. There AIMS scores have improved significantly and they just seem to be thriving on the whole environment. Thank you Alta Mesa!
I thought this schol would offer small classes, close community atmosphere, and a great place for my kids to excel. It doesnt. The teachers are lazy. Lessons plans and papers from the internet are being sused. The kids raise their hands to go to the bathroom. No more lining up and going as a class. I bet a lot of kids hold off potting. The kids are in and out of the doors unattended or escorted. Its a strip mall! The lunches are over priced, but who cares. No one makes sure they eat anyway. They have "Reading program" i painted on the doors.
Wow, I'm really surprised by some of the reviews. I brought my children here from a top rated school district. I wanted smaller class sizes, where they could get more one on one attention. I love the "family" feel, that nearly everyone knows my children by name, and will take a moment to check in and let me know where they're succeeding, or where they may be struggling. The staff couldn't be more helpful if they tried. The teachers are top notch. Oh and guess what? My children absolutely thrive in the smaller environment, where they're more than just another body filling a chair - they're actual people.
An over-all HORRIBLE school. The teacher is lazy with a capital L. The principal is a shrew and the idea of "performing arts" seems to have been lost. If you are looking for an alternative school -- that about sums up this school. Tried to leave mid-year that's how horrid it is. The parents singing it's praises must come from super bad neighborhoods and subpar schools if they think this is great.
I am a new teacher at LFPA Alta Mesa. There is very strong leadership and teacher collaboration. The teachers are very committed to their students, and it shows through not only in the classrooms, but also in the staff meetings. The teachers discuss better ways to help struggling students and have even spent their own time creating a "student lounge" for the older students to have a more welcoming atmosphere. I am very pleased to join the LFPA Alta Mesa teaching staff!
My kids have gone to this school for three years and love the teachers and the principal. I was shocked to read a couple of the ratings, but I guess you can't please everyone. My oldest even left and went tried public school at the start of ninth grade and didn't like it as much so he ended up going back. So seeing both sides my kids get much more attention and one on one help. The teachers always e-mail me right away to keep me informed and although my kids have never been in trouble and I don't know the principal on a personal level she is always very nice and I always see the kids running up to her and excited to see her at the end of the day when I pick up my kids. I love this school.
I was told my children could take the bus no matter where we lived, but when it came to school time; "ohh we are full, sorry about that". 8:10 rolls around and there are 2 vans sitting out front of the school. Maybe my kids could ride in those vans? Very misleading, will look for a new school next year
There is a very bad learning environment at this school. The teachers are great, but are not allowed to teach to their best abilities. Students are not all treated the same, and there is a very bad spirit amont the teachers due to an over bearing principal. I would not recommend any one send their children there. They will not get a good education.
I am very impressed with this school, I have seen them take my barley passing child and turn them around in just a few short months, where a 10 school had not.
I LOVE this school! Ratings aren't everything because I transferred my son here from a school rated 10/10. This school is small enough that they really get to know the students and parents. The students' best interest and education are the priorities at Learning foundation. My son went from hating school to excited to learn. I am so appreciative for this school and their staff!!!! Thank you for doing such a great job!
I love this school. My oldest started last year when we lived just down the street-but now we moved further away, but the school is amazing that we are keeping the kids enrolled!
My child had been in a public school for 1st & 2nd grade, he was unable to comprehend basic literature. ! year at LFPA & his Aims tests were remarkable! He is going to stay as long as we live in the area.
I have two children attending LFPA. I have never seen them so excited and motivated about school. Many kids in this school have had a hard time with public school and come to LFPA and really shine.
I have two kid's that have attended this school since they opened. I am very impressed! Both of my children have grown and learned so much, their grades have gone way up and the staff are awesome! They have performances quite often, and we haven't missed a single one. I am so proud of my children, and this school! Way to go Alta Mesa!
I have been working at LFPA for the past two years. I love working there. It is the first school I have worked for that really cares about their students best interest. Education is very important to them. They are always willing to provide me with the necessary tools to educate my students to the best of my abilities. I am also impressed in how much I have seen students improve and become successful since coming to our school. It gets an A+ rating from me!!!
My two children attend this school and love going to school. My Kindergarten student is reading and math at first grade level. My third grader is reading at 4th grade level. The teachers are great. The principal is fantastic. I highly recommend this school.
This has been an amazing school year for the son in the 5 grade at LFAPA. The teacher has excelled at his job. My son has improved his reading level by 2 grade because of his teacher and this school. The staff makes us feel at home and welcome anytime. The Principal is amazing and care deeply about every student. Great Place to be
My child has gone to this school since it first opened last year. I was amazed to see the transformations this year. Everyday she is so excited to go to school. It is such a warm caring environment. You can feel it in the atmosphere. The teachers really give her the one on one support that she needs. We love this school!
