My son will be starting his 4th year at Tower and I am extreamly happy. His education is far beyond other kids his age. The school is pretty small so not much goes on that a teacher or staff member doesn't find out about. They are watched and cared for well. One month we were low on money and were not gonna be able to make tuition ,I was already planning to transfer him to a public school when the principal brushed it off and said " we will worry about it later". Needless to say they all care about the kids . My son is at home when he is here and I never have to worry about his education , getting into trouble, getting bullied or anything unpleasant happening to him.

Owners work very hard and care about their students and parents all year round. They give 100% everyday.

My daughter, who has attended 2 years of preschool at Tower Academy loves it here! She has learned so much in the past two years. I am grateful and impressed with the dedication of the teachers and the administrative staff's involvement. The owner and principle of the school is a devoted teacher. His heart is on making the educational and social experience for the students the best it could be. He is consistently looking to introduce inovative academic and social programs to enhance the educational experience of the students. The administrative staff is composed primarily of immediate family (this was part of the transformation last year). Far from deterring in any way, this has only enhanced the quality of the school. They are vested in the schools success and are all very professional, pleasant and respectful. I highly recommend Tower Academy.

My son attended preschool here and is moving to kindergarten this year. This school went through a lot of changes in the last year. The result of those changes can be seen in the staff dedication towards the children and school. The Principal and the Director of the school are very involved and any concern that was brought to their attention was resolved quickly. I saw my child learning in every area whether it was academics or social development. They hosted so many fun events that he did not want to miss any day at the school. Above all the school boasts for offering the cheapest tuition rates in the area and it is true. We are getting way more than what we are paying. I'm looking forward to keep my son here for the elementary and bringing my daughter here as soon as she is fully potty trained.

My son attends Tower and it has been a great experience for him this far. However they have gone thru some changes with the adminstration staff and hope this is resolved soon. He is now in Kindergarten and is learning lots of new and fun stuff. I like his teacher she keeps things fun and hands on learning. I hope to see his education improve this year before we make judgement on Tower Academy.

Tower Academy is currently going through a lot of changes. Some good, some bad my daughter has been with Tower for 4 years. I saw a great deal of growth during her Preschool years, in part because her Preschool teacher was awsome! During her Kindergarten year, they brought in new teachers (not experienced at all) and saw the quality of my daughter s education decline. I m sorry to say, I m now very disappointed in the school

After having our daughter in the preschool program for a year now, my view has significantly changed. She has learned so much in this year, and her social skills have gotten a lot better. I can't believe the things she has learned already. However, it takes a good 2 to 3 months for the transition from day care, and it could be easier with a little more encouragement and sympathy from the teachers.

My son attends Tower and it has been a great experience for him. The education he is receiving is top-notch. Tower is dedicated to not only education, but also instilling values that will help my son throughout his life. From singing the National Athem and the School Song every Monday morning, to the class performances, my son enjoys every minute he spends here.
