We have been part of the Theodore Judah school family for the last 4 years and can say first hand it has been a great experience. The Principal, Mr. Peterson, is very involved and is active in all the school’s day to day activities and events. The administrative front office staff are always helpful and pleasant .
Our child has had amazing teachers in every grade. These teachers work hard to provide a solid academic education for the kids and make education fun and engaging.
Theodore Judah also has a wonderful PTA, run by an amazing group of parents who throughout the year organize, plan and put on a multitude of fun activities and after school programs for the students and their families to participate in.
We are proud to be part of the Theodore Judah family.
Kudos Theodore Judah! Keep up the good work!
I have 2 kids in this school and having been through 2 other schools in town (including one private one), I have found this school to be the best. The reason is not only the Gateway Academy and its advanced curriculum but its dedicated and enthusiastic teachers and principal Mr. Peterson. Keep up the good work!
Theodore Judah school is a great community. The school principal, Mr. Peterson is very involved and dynamic; he knows all students by name, greets them, and always available for questions and comments. The staff in this school is wonderful, teachers are very professional and work hard for their students' success and development. One thing that is noticeable on campus is parents' involvement; parents are always welcome to join classroom parties or field trips. In addition, our PTA is amazing with all the activities they arrange for the school through out the year. Also, my kids had the opportunity to be part of one of the after school clubs offered by the school, chess club. Chess club was a great opportunity to learn the rules of chess and play with other students. Over all, we had a great experience in this school and my kids like to go to school and learn a lot.
The overriding difference between this school and most other public or private schools, is the principal Mr. Peterson makes himself readily available to the children and parents. He knows every kid`s name and personally takes the time to interact with them in a consistent manner. He is in front of the school greeting the children, escorting them across the street, assisting them with any requests as well as repeating this activity in the afternoon when school has ended. I challenge anyone at any school to say their administrator does the same. This professional ethic carries over to the teachers, who are phenomenal in their approach to developing the students desire to learn. They actively prepare them for middle school, the next level of education, by giving them assignments that challenge them by using computers for research, presentations and weekly homework. The Gateway Academy for those students with extra educational needs above the normal classroom standards, provides curriculum above common core with opportunities for group work, and individual growth in public speaking and topic exploration. A great choice for any parent!
Theodora Judah: I am very disappointed in this school. In grades 3rd and lower, the school looks the other way on student behavior. Bulling, name calling, physical hitting and kicking. Teachers teaching academics are great. But physical safety of students lacking. I would never recommend this school.
We just absolutely love this school! It is now our 4th year and we are so pleased to see how it is so fruitful and multiplying by the year! Our principle Mr. Peterson is a wonderful influence and mentor to the kids as well as the rest of the staff. It feels more like a family then a school! We are so blessed to have this as our homeschool and look forward to the years to come!
