My daughters r attending this year, & 1 of them attended last year. After reading reviews, I see that they r old, & outdated. My 1st daughter is just barely 5 & doing some reading. She loves school, has been able to work in groups, problem solve, & follow directions for a while now. My 2nd daughter who is 4 & also harder to teach has shown great improvement in drawing, writing, & spelling her name, which is incredible. The school has not only welcomed my desire to be very involved, but has capitalized on it by allowing me to channel my energies into helping out in the PTO & fundraising. If I ever go back to work, I will certainly attempt to work within this school because I believe that once they r settled in the new building in a few short weeks they will be stellar! Frustrations: lack of volunteer training. Communication has also been troublesome, but 4 year olds lose papers. Maybe email would be better? This being said, they r literally weeks from moving so things can fall through the cracks. All in all, this school is awesome, particularly for this area. I will continue to send my children to this school and recommend this school for the foreseeable future.
I have been working at HPA since it opened, and I can say with confidence that it is a wonderful place to send your children. The school is truly focused on academic achievement; the staff works very hard to meet the needs of all students. We have an amazing Learning Support Team for students with special needs, and we offer a well-rounded specials schedule: P.E. three times a week, and Spanish, Technology, and Wellness once or twice a week. Our wellness program has won two different awards! We also focus on developing student character; all of our students take part in service learning projects to help local and national organizations. And to top it all off, we're moving into a beautiful, brand-new building in January!
As a parent, I could not ask for a better school! My son attends preschool at High Point Academy and I am amazed everyday at how much knowledge he brings home. High Point Academy is moving mountains in the area of academics and I am thrilled to be apart of this amazing adventure. Keep up the great work!
HPA has a strong focus on student growth and achievement which follows the school's mission for academic excellence. The school's community, staff and parent involvement has been extremely beneficial to my child and our family. I am a proud parent and staff member of HPA; I'd have it no other way!
I think HPA is an amazing school. It has many great teachers. The office is full of great people who are eager to help. I believe that the way HPA ability groups the students for reading and math facilitates learning in subjects that can be challenging for teachers and students alike. Excellent school.
The administrators at this school are only concerned about there title. Children are out of control and CHARTER means one thing to them, 'BUSINESS.'
Once this school has the ability to move into a longterm facility it will be one of the best schools on this side of Denver.
I have pulled my child out of this school. The administration does not have a clue of what they are doing. Except for 2 people; Dr. Lewis and Miss Wendy in the office, every other person that we have encountered at this school has been less than cordial. The language that the teacher used with our child was unacceptable, and this school is doing nothing but setting our children up for failure.
This school is great. As a parent, I attend PTO meetings, but I do not want to become involved in private matters between the teachers and their bosses. In almost any workplace there are those that do not feel 'supported' in one aspect or another, and some may decide to work elsewhere. There were a few great teachers that left last year, and that was unfortunate. Also unfortunate was all of the gossip and details (about their conflict) that was leaked to parents during that time. It was probably hard for some parents not to get caught up in that conflict. The teachers at this school are terrific and to say that the 'good ones are gone' and discount those parents and teachers who remain, sounds like sour grapes.
The teachers at this school are not provided with the support needed by the administration and many of the best teachers have left. Ask your teachers if they bring their own children to this school and it's a good indicator of the quality of school you have.
This is a wonderful school. My 3 year old now 4 year has learned so much in such a little bit of time. I am now sending his little brother and have pulled my 2 older step sons out of a horrible charter school to send them here. The teachers a wonderful and the staff is pleasant to work with. What a awesome place for our children to be.
This is our first year with The Academy at High Point and we are very pleased. After looking at other schools in the surrounding area, it wasn't hard to realize that this school best represented our values and beliefs of an educational system and a community. Disrespecting other students is not tolerated and is consistent with the general theme of an all inclusive school environment. The teachers and administrators care about the students and hold the students and parents accountable for the success of a well rounded student. This school should continue to expect its students, parents and teachers to share a love for learning , an awareness of ones health and a kindness towards one another. Go Huskies!!!!
We have 2 children at this school. They are both being tested for the gifted program and are doing wonderful at this school. We actually chose this school over private schools that we had our choice of and transfered out of the much vaunted 'Cherry Creek School' district. I am glad that we did.
This is our second year with the Academy at High Point. We love the school and its staff. The curriculum is wonderful - above expectations! Great class sizes and a well balanced 8 hour/day activities. Thumbs up!!!
This is a wonderful school. I am constantly amazed by the curriculum. What a gem of a school!
This school is GREAT! The school day is longer and they focus on Technology and Wellness. They do reading at the same time for the whole school so kids can move up or down to their level. Love this school would recommend to anyone!
This school is fantastic! The teachers are wonderful by really caring about the education that each child gets. The class sizes are great with real one on one attention on a daily basis. We just had an 'End of BASH' that was great. They provided games, face painting, food, and a great environment for the whole school community to get to know one another. Top notch school!!
My child has become a better student in this school. My child has started to enjoy school again and is getting better grades! It is a wonderful school with a knowledgeable and caring staff.
