I feel very fortunate to have found this school! The academics are sharp. The atmosphere is loving and caring. The safety is reliable. My daughter just completed Kindergarten, and I have committed to another full year.
Our family has 3 children at Page Private school in Costa Mesa. We and more importantly our children absolutely love it! We feel that Page has done an outstanding job of getting our children engaged in their own education. We can see a strong foundation being instilled in them. It shows in their writing skills and vocabulary. And not only are they doing so well they are hungry for knowledge and are excited about learning just as much as the teachers are passionate about teaching. Which as a parent I am so overjoyed. Our kids love and respect their teachers. We feel the skills both in education and socially that they are being taught will be useful throughout our children's lives. THANK YOU PAGE!
This school is a joke, do not send your child here. My child attended Page from K thru 2nd grade. It is basically babysitting w/ worksheets. The teachers are lazy and the principal is unresponsive to concerns. Finally moved my child to public school, where they had to catch her up in math. What a waste of money.
There is no way the school was worth the money. They use the same curriculum as the public schools. There is an unhealthy air of elitism around the place and some of the new facilities are nicer but some parts of the building still feel like you are in an industrial park.
My child currently attends page and the program is really grea. The teachers are very responive to questions and concerns from the parents. My child brings home projects that she does everyday and a report on what was done in class. I am very pleased with the school
When my child first attended, I was quite impressed. My opinion has decreased over the last two years. There seems to be more playing and less teaching. It doesn't seem like they cover everything that is taught at public school in a given year. The director does not take parental criticism easily. Doesn't seem like anything gets done. The computer class is just a class where the kids get to play non-educational games and surf the internet. I have pulled my child out and don't regret it.
My child attended preschool at this school and I was so horrified that she left after 2 months. For starters, the television was on far to often upon drop off and pick up. The classrooms were dark and sparsely decorated with artwork or toys. The creations she brought home were little more than colored in photo copies from a work book. This school does not fullfill the needs of young children.
