The 90-min a day paragon (hands-on social studies) curriculum has the most daily emphasis. I'd rather see emphasis in Language Arts, Science, and the subjects that are expected in High-School & College. I feel my little one is falling behind. But she does enjoy going to this school, but as a parent I'm a bit worried.
I visited many schools before settling on BLRA. I am amazed by what my daughter is learning in kindergarten. She comes home excited every day to tell me something new she learned.
Me and my Husband looked at many different schools, since are child was starting Kindergarten. We wanted the best education for her. My child has been challenged at this school and loves it. teaching. Everyone in the staff is very nice and helpful. Next year there will be more opportunities for the students regarding sports and extracurricular activities. I like the idea of a uniform so, children can focus on their education instead of who is wearing what. They really care about our children's education. This school will only get better with each year.
I have a daughter who is in her second year at BLRA & her sibling will be joining her next year, as we are very excited! For the school opening just last year, you couldn't tell! I too was previously a cargiver at a couple of elementary schools around town & was very picky when 'shopping around' for a school as my 'baby' was entering Kindergarten. I just have to say, you always have to worry with a 'starter school' but BLRA has never let us down. They take your feedback/ideas seriously, have a great parent-participation/PTO, curriculum, & an excellent staff who genuinely care about your children. My daughter is excelling in each class so we are very proud. She loves to go to school each & every day, (with a smile on her face) & that is what is really important! Keep up the awesome work, BLRA! :)
The office staff are VERY unprofessional and rude. The school doesn't offer a good education. My child ended behind in classes. I wish I would have kept my child in regular public school. I do not recommend this school.
This school is going into it's second year. This school is very well for children who need an extra push. They recognize the need of each individual child. If they are behind they will offer free tutoring after school. If they are excelling they will meet the needs of that child. My kids are learning so much. Thank you BLRA Staff! I look forward to the future of this school!
BLRA is a first year school who has had a great start. The teachers had to take an entire student body, identify and assess their needs, and then teach accordingly. I was impressed with their love for the students and doing what it took to help them learn. The music program is still growing, as well as the sports program. I think it is worth the wait and will stick with the school.
For a first year school, I am very impressed. My child has been challenged and loves it. I like the fact that the teachers are young and not burned out. They have an excitement for what they are teaching. I give the admin. and teachers a high 5. Next year there will be a lot more opportunities for the students regarding sports and extracurricular activities. I am very happy we made the move from a public school to a charter school. The children can focus on their education instead of who is wearing what. They really care about our children's education. This school will only get better with each year. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our children.
