My son started Kindergarten there. I heard great things about it from my good friend. The teacher was amazing, loving and taught my son to be respectful. The activities are family focused and something to look forward to. The Campus is colorful bright and welcoming so is the whole staff. I highly recommend this school.

Soar Charter School has developed its curriculum to teaching the students to be knowledgeable in studying for the near future and not old school ways. Unbelievable their method is of encouraging students to read and the students actually desire to be accomplished in this area. Special attention is given in all grades the act of respect, and striving to be the best that can be as an individual. The students look forward to their Awards assemblies to see what the outcome of their efforts are. From; A Grandmother of two Boys that attend Soar Charter School.

SOAR Charter Academy is a loving safe environment. My daughter attends kindergarten at SOAR and I have never seen a child more eager to want to go to school. If it were up to her she would go on the weekends as well. Her teacher is amazing and challenges her to her fullest potential. Small class sizes make the school more like a family environment. The focus on character education teaches all of the students to become productive citizens of the community.

Fundraisers help pay for multiple field trips each year. The teachers and administration really care about the kids and do everything in their power to give them the education they deserve. Children of all learning levels and abilities are given the opportunity to learn and grow at their level. Each child is pushed to do better. There is a wait list for entry and siblings of current students get priority. Transferring my son here was the best choice I could have ever made concerning his education. The local elementary school at the district had him labeled as a trouble maker in kinder because of his short attention span. He is now reading and doing math several grades ahead.

Soar Charter Academy there is so much to say about the school. It is a blessing that the 5 founders opened the school when they did.I held my daughter back in 3rd grade and I was scared when she was going to go back to her home school. I found out about Soar and I put her at Soar and I am so glad that I did.The teachers are so caring and they want to see their kids succeed in their school life and beyond.All the teachers know each one of the kids name and their parents.You can go to anyone of the teachers and ask a question they will give you an answer with a smile. Erin enjoys going to school,one time she had a migraine and before noon she felt better and I had to go home and get her and she went back to school.Yes we are a small school but even when the school gets bigger I feel that the school will stay the same and the teachers will care even more. Succeeding is the word that are in the teachers mind and succeeding it what they want to see for Soar Charter Academy.Erin again enjoys going to school and she hopes they will build a school that will go all the way up to high school so that she will not have to leave. Soar Charter Academy:Wants Are Kids To Soar To The Highest.Over all its a great school and they have teachers who care about education and their kids.

Soar Charter Academy is the 'Absolute BEST' school I have sent my child to in his 10 years of life. They really work for the children and the parents. They are 'unlike' so many other schools, 'true, wise, and honest' communicators with the parents in regards to your child's abilities, progress, attitude, grades, and so much more. They keep us parents very well informed 'Daily'. I ask once and believe it is done. Furthermore, they are website available and when your child may say there is 'No homework' you can go online and see for yourself what took place in the class that day. My child has some minor special needs and with that 'UNLIKE' other schools, he was not singled out, or harrassed, they really encourage and strenthen his abilites. They give so many ideas to myself as to what can be done and how things can be done. I am so happy with Soar Charter Academy.

Soar has the most wonderful learning environment that I've ever seen. The parents are involved, the teachers/staff are amazing, and the children reflect that. These kids are happy, bright, and are enthusiastic about school-and that is a direct reflection of their feeling safe, cared for, and respected. The kids are rewarded for performing academically, displaying good Character, and going above and beyond [through the Caught Being Good lunches]. Its not every day that one finds a school that delivers an extraordinary academic curriculum contained in a safe and fun learning environment with a caring atmosphere, and delivers character education-educating the whole child to become outstanding citizens with the ability and desire to reach their goals while actively contributing to their community. Soar is a unique find, especially rare in public education-I know that my children as well as every other student at Soar will be forever impacted by the education and care they are receiving at here. Not long after starting at Soar my kids were beginning to exhibit a desire to learn that I had never seen in them before-a spark has been lit and I hope it never goes out. Thank You and Forever Thanks Soar!

Soar is an spectacular school! It provides children with an amazing learning environment that is full of praise and encouragement while remaining academically challenging. Children who excel in a subject receive independent study which allows them to blossom and feel fantastic about themselves. The kids who are struggling get extra help directly from the teacher, a home to school collaboration, and by having children work in small groups with a t.a. In general, the kids are some of the most wonderfully well rounded little people one can hope to meet-they are responsible, respectful, caring, and helpful-which reflects both on the parents and the school as character education is as emphasized at Soar as academics. Each month the kids know that they can be rewarded for showing their character with the Character Award and by the Caught Being Good draw for lunch with the principal. I... wish I had more space!
