The teachers don't follow through with the students or parents. They act very interested and caring but just don't follow through. They take kids with problems but have no training in how to deal with them and don't seem to be interested in learning.
This school is poorly ran, they don't seem to know what they are doing, the teachers are not certified, and they don't have much of a curriculum. It's a shame! It is such a quaint little school and a lovely atmosphere, the education just wasn't there.
Not sure why there are only 4 stars... every review comments on the excellence of the school, grounds and staff. If there was ever anything negative to report, that went down the road with the teachers who weren't asked to return. This is an amazing place for not only the students, but their parents. You know they are receiving an amazing education, you know they are safe on the quaint farm grounds and you know this is one of the best experiences they will have in their lifetime. The well rounded curriculum is always at the forefront. Music, Art, P.E., Latin, and Virtues are just some of the new classes now being offered. The adoring faces of the children when the owners are on the grounds speak for themselves. Parents are encouraged to participate in educational field trips.
Excellent school. The teacher is very knowledgeable and is able to give a lot of personal help to each student. The curriculum that I was was great and I could tell she really cares about her students. My only concern is lack of peer models for my daughters age. There were 3 3rd graders, a 4th grader, and a kindergartener with no promise as to how many 1st graders there will be next year. This will be a very hard decision for us as parents to make.
The individualized attention each student gets makes a huge difference to the students. The classrooms provide an atmosphere that helps promote learning and respect among the students. Just two weeks into this current school year I can already tell this is going to be quite an amazing year for all of the children!
I'm so glad we found this school! This is such great place! The staff really cares about the kids and you can tell. The children are all very comfortable with their classmates and the teachers/staff. The campus grounds are filled with all sorts of fun as well as an occasional peacock (which are friendly and used to the kids). I know that our family will be here for quite some time! If you're looking for a great school with small classes and quality teachers this is the place!
This is an absolutely amazing school! They are all about the students. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to make sure each and every child is working at or above their grade level. My child entered this school a shy little person and is now VERY confident. They focus on each individual child, which allows the children to learn and grow at the pace they should. Not every child learns the same way or at the same pace. At Almondale, they make sure every child flourishes! The teachers, staff and the owners are the most wonderful group of people I've ever had the opportunity to know! I'm so glad we found this hidden gem!!! The best part....they have alot of fun too! With fun in the classroom (which promotes learning) to educational field trips, this school has everything your child needs! My child loves going to school now!
My child has been attending this school now for a couple of months. The owners and staff of this school are remarkable. They care enough to ensure each child receives the utmost quality care and education. They provide a safe and enjoyable environment that allows each child to grow at their pace, while building their self-confidence. My child has never been happier. You know this when your child looks forward to school!
This school offers amazing one on one attention because of the small class sizes. It has great field trips and activities that parents can be included in. It's especially great for kids who are behind in one subject and fine in all the rest, the teacher can work with them individually to catch them up. Great involved teachers who communicate, an amazing staff and great leadership!
