The teachers care about the students. I appreciate the positive focus on educating my daughter into leadership and academics. I approve of what she will learn in her Kinder class and it is up to my husband and I to aid in this learning by providing learning opportunities at home as well.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
effective in teaching at the low standards that the school has, but not effective in challenging the student to excell

My daughter attended Paideia for three years. I loved the ideals that the school has, but the execution and performance do not stack up. I kept my daughter there because each year I hoped it would get better. But the ideals are not enough when the school is a failing school and has lost it's accreditation. The education is taught and geared towards the under-performing children, which brings the brighter children down to under-performers as well. Do not send you child there if you truely value academics and you childs education future. If you're just looking for a nice building with nice people, go for it. Sad but true.

Develops character: Agree

the core values of the school are great, but academic performance is below average, even for the area



- a
Lowest test scores in the area.....not much more to say except for the high turnover in staff. Will not be attending next year.

7 Habits allows the school to develop leadership and take ownership for their actions without being penalized.

In regards to the 4th grade teacher, she did go over the instructions in class with the way the teacher was to explain it. It was reinforced on the website because the teacher was nice enough to offer that for the parents. Realize parents that you are your child's first teacher and it still is your job to assist your child with homework. As far as class dojo, it actually requires no extra teacher time so as far as not getting to content, that has nothing to do with Class Dojo. It is a behavior management system just like any other requiring the same amount of time, however parents are allowed to see how their child is doing throughout the day and use it because teachers can respond at all hours through their smart phones. Don't knock something you don't know anything about. Lastly this school is the best school for your child if you want your child to have a rigorous education with teachers who are less focused on grades and more focused the learning. Forget get grades and get focused on learning. Good luck at those other schools that say your child is artificially intelligent then can't pass the SAT because their "Great School" gives them an "A or B."

The principles taught to all three of my children (Kinder, 2nd, 3rd) are principles that will carry them through out education and beyond. Dr. Winsor has truly found the key to success that far exceeds the tradition public schools take on education. I would highly recommend Paideia to all parents in the area.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

The use of the app ClassDojo is amazing this allows me to have a peek at what is going on in class, and how my children are behaving, the teachers are in constant contact with me as a parent, which allows me to breath a little easier during my day. Miss Jones (Kinder) has been so attentive to my son and his growth as the first day was not the greatest for those that have Kinder students, lots of tears and fears for both parents and students. My daughter (3rd grade) was recognize early on for her leadership skills which shows how well teachers are able to engage with students

Develops character: Strongly agree

Dr. Brian and his staff truly care about each and every child attending, they worked very hard in ensuring my children have a wonderful experience. They model the behaviors expected from each child.
