We were fortunate to have a great teacher this year, however have been really saddened by what we've seen in the administration. Unless something drastically changes next year, I fear this school will continue to go downhill.
In my opinion, the school has been declining in quality for the last two years. Many of the best teachers have become disillusioned and left. One of the founders, who was a strong asset, has left too. Classes now appear to cater to the lowest common denominator student, with exceptional students failing to be challenged in any real manner. My kids will not be returning after this school year completes.
We were at Milestones for a long time. The administration staff is non-existent when problems needs to be resolved. However, when the school needs money from parents, the administration staff is there with open arms. NOT a top notch school, keep looking.
I searched within a 20 mile radius of Milestones, and thought it was the best school around. HUGE change in admin. Dont expect to see any leadership from administration on any issues at hand. Keep looking, Milestones is not the 'excelling' school it was a year ago.
Have been with this school since its inception. Was great but has lost focus, mission and leadership. Stay away from this school.
Huge change since last year. No extracurricular activies for the kids. Change in administration. The enthusiam that was once there, is now lost.
What started out to be a great school has been an even bigger disappointment. Milestones has lost its philosophy. Academics and safety have suffered. The past two years the school has experienced a huge staff turnover and the new leadership is not promoting the 'sense of community'. The Parent Teacher Team (PTT)is a group of devoted parents whom's interest is the children and have volunteered hours of time and effort are not appreciated or supported by the administrators. I recommend prior to choosing this school, that one should spend a significant amount of time observing.
There is zero leadership at the school, education is not the focus. A change in administration has utimately caused the schools demise.
Ask to observe before committing to school. We were really excited about Milestones and then there were alot of changes midyear.
Leadership is non-existent in this school.Good choice for average kids. Expected alot more.
I researched many public,charter, and private schools. I observed to extent many,many classes and schools for kindergarten. I knew this was the best fit! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and the staff has been exceptional in keeping open lines of communication and genuinely cares about each child. This school is not about being 'worksheet smart', they individualize and provide a more than well rounded education. My son has already made a huge leap in learning just in the first month he has been there. His teacher, Ms. Rosy is not only kind and compassionate, she also challenges their learning. Our family is blessed to have such a fabulous teacher and school that we can support. I feel we are getting more than a private education, at this charter school. We have a son who springs out of bed in the morning, excited for a new opportunity to learn! Becky Lewis
Well as a student milestones it's a very great school! We are well displined, and still have alot of fun. We have an awesome girls volleyball, and girls and boys basketball team . We don't get a lot of homework only because we don't get out of school until 3:30. The teachers are great but can be very strict. P.T.A(parent teacher appreation) is a great way for all the parents to get involed in the school events.
My daughter started the year in Milestones and I have to command you on the great acceptance and help she received and the wonderful welcome. Apart from that the school has shown extraordinary involvement and openness to the need of the children and the communication with the parents. I must compliment you on the fantastic web site that enables us to follow and keep up with all the new activities that take place.
Great school,great involvment, great attitudes. Lots of extracurricular activities.
My two oldest children go to Milestones. They have attended there since the school was at its orignal location. They are doing wonderfully and the help that my son is receiving is fantastic. My kids are learning about community and working together and sharing ideas. They are also learning about personal responsibility and all the required things as well. They are truly doing a wonderful job! Becky Moore
My son attends the preschool at Milestones and I am extremely pleased with how he has excelled, what he has learned and how caring and attentive the teachers are. I love this school!
I have 3 boys that are at Milestones. My oldest has been there since 5th grade, I would never put him back in public school. The teachers here truly care about the students. They have positive discipline which my 8yr old responds to much better than negative. My kindergartner is very talkative and Ms.Gloria loves him just the same. She listens to him and encourages his learning. they are all thriving here.The Priciple in incredible, awesome and loves the kids as well. Signed: an extremely satisfied parent for 3 years
