We had hoped things would improve with new leadership, but it seems litle has changed, and our children are left out.
I am not sure about the experiences of others, but this is not a satisfactory placement for disabled children. Challenger staff have little time, training or inclination when it comes to disabled children, and we ended up with very serious problems when all was said and done
I am on the PTSA at Challenger, have been here for 4 years now, the best thing about Challenger is the teachers. They are absolutely awesome! They have a great seminar program. The only thing the school is lacking in is extracurricular activities, they have little to none.
Our experience with Challenger was very bad. Bullying issues were not addressed, and they lack any meaningful programs for disabled children. I could tell some of the teachers tried, but were overshadowed by poor leadership. We certainly did not feel our son was safe in school at any time.
Both my children went to Challenger and it is a wonderful school. I never had a problem wiht any teacher, classowrk, or administration. Everyone was always extremely helpful. There is a homework helpline and website withc the daily assignments. All the teachers are very accesible and cooperative. The school is so clean it looks new. I highly recommend this school. It has an outstanding gifted program and even the mainstream classes are providing a good educational challenge. They are strict on the dress ocde and violence is not tolerated. The only downfall is there are no sports teams but plenty of tutorials. Thank you
The academic rigor at Challenger is great. The school is founded on a solid community atmosphere and the teachers really care about the students.
I am an 8th grade science teacher at Challenger. Compared with other schools with similar demographics, Challenger is at the top.
Great school, fine teachers, needs to add art to accomodate student interest.
Outstanding Staff, sensitive counseling department, high academics, Safe environment for students
