I transferred my child to Transfiguration believing the experience would be better than her former charter school, but I'm not sure this is true. I've found many of the children to be really rude and when I observe the parents I understand why the children are this way. Broken spirits, mangled mentalities, and misbehavior should not be a daily component of any classroom.
I really like this school. I transferred my children from another private school in which they outgrew. I like the fact that the grades are from pre-k to 8th, that means most siblings can attend the same school. I love the extracurricular activities, especially the sports programs. I wish the sports began prior to 4th grade however, with more activities for girls. Also there are some really great kids. Most are well behaved, from families that value respect , discipline, quality, and value a good education. In short, my kids get prayer, good friends, some sports activities, they both can attend, good education, at an affordable rate.
The school is wonderful the teachers are great. There is a great deal of parent involvement
The teachers at Transfiguration seem dedicated to the profession. My children are very happy with the school. Yet, my concern is more about private schools' test scores and accountability overall. While I know that the basics are being covered, I often wonder whether or not the challenge is there. It would be nice to click on a test scores link for any given private or parochial school, and have the results immediately displayed as done with public schools. This would give parents a much better sense of how their school really performs academically. This information is so vital, especially when many parents avoid the neighborhood public school because of the alarmingly low test scores. It's almost as if one must put all confidence in a rating which is often based on 'word of mouth'. Hopefully, that 'mouth' is a successful product of, or respected participant in the parochial or private-education community.
My son has attended there since Pre-K and has done very well and is continuing to do well. Now that he is close to middle school he needs to be more challenge. The elemantry school teachers seem to be great. It's the middle school teachers that I have concern about, not being focus on there students. The students should be number one priority not you acting or singing carreer. Teachers need to be at school everyday and on time, just like were trying to teach our children too. If the principal will tighten up on the middle school teachers, I believe it could be an outstanding school once again.
The time my child attended this shcool I was not very happy. There was favoritism towards certain parents and teachers. My child started preschool knowing her colors, how to count to 30 and her abc's,we worked on this nightly, I did not receive a report card until the end of the year and the teachers wanted tot take the creidt for what my child alredy knew, so they taught nothing new to her.
