Our son is thriving with this hybrid learning model! He has attended for 2 years now and enjoys the stress-free environment very much. Being able to move at his own pace and re-test when needed relieves so much pressure and has resulted in excellent grades. Special education services are top-notch and freely given. Parents are very involved in the school organizing field trips and after school clubs and classes. Can't wait for our daughter to begin attending in 2014!
Great school!! My son started in 6th grade when school opened. He will be starting High School in the fall at Flex. Great teachers and amazing Head of School. There are MANY activities that the students can participate in. The school is new so activities are being added all the time, activities that the students want, like cooking, crossfit or karate to name a few. Students can participate in Music with the San Jose Youth symphony. They offer foreign travel and will be adding Washington DC to next school year. 6th graders go to Science camp and O Neil Sea Odyssey and as with any new school I am sure they will be adding more next year. It s a great school for those students who want to learn!
Good school, My son is going this school and we like it. Teacher and Environment are friendly and motivated.
Excellent School! My oldest daughter chose to come to the Flex Academy when they first opened almost three years ago. She chose it because of the blending learning environment and K12 method of learning. My youngest daughter soon joined her. Both LOVE the school, are thriving in the environment, and greatly benefiting from the curriculum! They both love the one on one that they can get from their teachers and academic coaches, as well as the small group breakout sessions with their core teachers. It s rigorous, a lot more work than the previous school they were at, and they and my husband and I feel that they are ahead of the game! They enjoy the dances, the family events, and many other activities put on by the parent volunteers, staff and PTO. Being a young school we stress to the students and the families that we don t have A LOT of extra activities at the school. The staff as well as the PTO have been working hard every year to add more and more activities for the students and families to attend. More parent involvement will allow us to have more and more activities for the students and families!
SV Flex is a great school. My daughter started here this year and is loving it. She enjoys her teachers, her adviser, and all the friends she's made. Since it's a small school, everyone knows each other. The curriculum is much more rigorous than even I thought it would be. It took a little time for my daughter to get the hang of managing what she gets done when. Since you are given the week's worth of work, it's nice for my child to jump around and tackle difficult subjects first than save the easy ones last which she can do even over the weekend to hand in Monday each week. I can stay on top of how she is doing online as well. The program at Flex is rigorous but with the help of parent volunteers and other students, they try to help each other out so that all kids can stay on top of their subjects. One final point, I think this school does prepare a student for college. In my experience in college, you get the class syllabus on the first day of class and it's up to you to manage what you get done when. It's very self-initiated which is how Flex is setup. Middle School allows for opportunities to improve grades below 80% but High School doesn't just like in college as it should be.
A Great school and a happy student! This school was an answer to our prayers. While my child was overlooked and failing at a previous school Silicon Valley Flex Academy is giving my child all the tools needed to excel and is now happily thriving. The curriculum is excellent and is personalized for students to succeed. The environment is very positive and all the staff are warm, friendly and very encouraging. When my child graduates from Silicon Valley Flex Academy he will be more than ready for college and have the confidence to prosper in his future. This is because of what this school had provided and done for my child.
We love this school! After our old private school closed we were thrilled to find Silicon Valley Flex Academy in Morgan Hill. With individualized attention as needed by the students, it's the next best thing to a small private school. The students work in a modern environment that truly prepares them well. Each class not only has teachers but also additional academic advisors to assist the students when they need additional help. Students are able to work at their own pace knowing their scheduled work for the entire week in advance. The active PTO presents many extracurricular activities, including dances, sports, teacher appreciation events, and family get togethers for everyone. Music lessons are available after school weekly as well. There is a reason Education Week (www.edweek.org) lists SV Flex as one of their "35 High Schools Worth Visiting".
We've seen this school grow from a small startup, three years ago, to the great place it is today. Our son has been thriving here academically; he has found a great group of friends and gets along with students from all grades. The teachers are very involved, and the head of school is a no-nonsense, involved and passionate educator. The curriculum is rigorous, but allows the student to work at their own pace, which is great preparation for college. I like that I get a weekly update on his grades, and that the teachers are responding quickly to questions. We're really happy here!
This is our first year here at Silicon Valley Flex Academy. My twin brother and I really like our teacher and advisory. They're both caring, helpful and kind. We enjoy many of the events at our school such as Science Camp, Monday Mile walks, dances, soccer and volleyball. We also enjoy after school programs from the San Jose Youth Symphony and Bretheren Crossfit. I think this school is awesome and you should come here!
DON'T SEND YOU CHILD HERE! I can not stress this enough, this school DOES NOT prepare you child for any other high school, the teachers and adviser are not help full in any way the rules here are bad the students can not express their personality in any way possible. most of the staff don't even do their job they just hang out and don't help the students when they raise their hands. over all this school is bad and the system is horrible. i will not be sending my child here next year.
Not your average school. This school is "different" then other schools manly bacause use of the learning system. I just want to point out that this system was used for home schooling and they tried to put it in a pulplic school. If you are sending your child here don't exepect any activities or things like that for your child. Also if your child wants to got to a different school after flex it will be hard for them to adapt back to a normal school system. I could go on and on about how unorganized the school is and how the computers are terrible and the unhelpful advisors but, just take this advice from me I've sent my child here and took them out after a year I do not decrement this school
This is a wonderful school. The staff is amazing. The first day I walked in I asked the counselor- Do you know all the students' names?, and he replied- I know way more than just their names. I feel very confident leaving my kids in a school where every teacher cares about them and know them as individuals. Their environment is set for no bullying at all, everyone gets respect. I can not praise it more.
This newly formed charter school for middle and high school is a great alternative to a very expensive private middle/high school in Morgan Hill. The school offers an expansive number of core and elective subjects that far surpasses other schools. The principal is very informative and switched on to the needs of this age group. The students are polite and friendly. The teachers are great and approachable. Parents are very friendly and happy to chat with you. There are clubs and sporting teams to join. The method of curriculum is brilliant, it prepares the children for the rigors of college. Your child could be struggling at school or could be at the top of the class, it accommodates all types and allows them to excel to their full potential. It is a system that allows good focus and direction for learning. The personalized learning is also a great balance, if you have a child who has a lot of extra-curricula activities and trying to fit everything in. As a parent you have the ability to continually monitor your child's progress day by day online. This is a good school. My child is thriving and making so many more friends.
This is a wonderful school, my child is thriving there, the principal is great and the teachers and learning coaches really care for the students. The kids really take ownership of their own education here, they learn how to manage their time and work on their own and to communicate well, with adults and with peers. I'm really grateful !
