I am currently the PTO President and want to say this has been a great year with a great community of parents and teachers! Our children experience school on a personal level that exceeds any other public school we have attended. Mrs.Molloy has given my son the confidence to excel academically. We are not the exception family but a result of the high standards and individualized attention each child receives.
Ventana School offers so much more than an education. This school teaches character building in such a positive atmosphere. The teachers really know their students needs and care about their growth. The academics are taught above the average grade level and children are allowed to work at their own levels. If you want a change, this is the school for you.
I LOVE teaching at Ventana! When you step foot on campus, you will get the feeling of happiness. We are a small school who offers small class sizes so we can reach all our students. The faculty is my second family. I have never felt the support as I do at Ventana.
I attended Ventana for 10 years [Preschool- 8th grade. (Presently they no longer have a preschool or pre-K class)] I was promoted from the eigth grade at the top of the class. Once in high school I realized that without the help and individual attention that I recieved from Ventana I wouldn't have been able to achieve the great grades that still hold me at the top of my class.I was even accepted into the National Honors Society because of my academic achievements. Ventana offered me a chance to become a great student and I fully grasped that. The teachers were and still are amazing, the class size is small (20-22 tops), and there were a variety of extra-curricular activities to join. I give this school a 5 star rating. (Over all I'd give my elementary school a 50 star rating, but the rating bar doesn't go that high.)
I went to Ventana for 5th-8th grade. I had straight A's while I was there and loved having the personal one on one attention with teachers who really care. This school is very supportive and encourages their students to strive for the best. I am now in 10th grade and attend a college prep high school. I believe that Ventana has strongly prepared me for this school and my grades reflect that. I have now been accepted in the National Honors Society because of my academic achievement. I strongly recomend this school for all students who want to succeed!
Ventana has a perfect learning environment. They care about all of their students and try to help them become well educated, well adjusted contributors to society.
Ventana Academy strives to put the student first. Staff members work very hard to structure programs which will benefit all students and to keep up with current research. The principal and board are committed to small class sizes small (cap at 20). This enables us to give individualized attention to each student.
I have worked at numerous schools throughout Phoenix. Ventana is a great school with Teachers who are not only qualified, but care about their students. Students are challenged to go beyond what they think they can do. This school is a wonderful place for a child to learn.
i gave this school a 3 star rating because they were not professional and they were failures either, i feel this school could have put a lot more work into educating the students rather than watching movies every other day! Ventana Academy, you have a lot of room for improvement! A lot!
I used to go to Ventana for 6-8 grade. I absolutely loved it! I was a straight A student who always worked ahead of the class, especially in math. The only problem was, when I got to highschool, things weren't like Ventana at all. The atmosphere is completely different, I, who was once a straight A student, am now a D+ student in 2 classes, a C in another and 2 As and one B in art. This school is great I just wished it had prepared me more.
My son enjoys the students and the staff. Although he is very bright and above grade level, he needs the added attention the teachers give. We are happy with him there.
I believe the teachers and staff at Ventana really care about my child. They understand his needs and know him. It's nice to see that all the students know each other, in and among all the grade levels. It really feels like a community.
My son loves going to Ventana! I have been thrilled with the individual attention he gets and they have fascinating special programs (equine science, gardening, etc.). It has a respectful, gentle atmosphere and the staff does a great job teaching character values and building the children's confidence in themselves.
