My son attended this school for 5th grade only, having been at a different school within the district previously. He grew exponentially in the year that he attended AEES. The teacher that he had was truly invested in his students and amazingly attuned to both their educational and personal strengths. My son was guided in the areas where he needed personal growth and received a sound academic education. The administration and principal of the school are professional, knowledgeable, and interested in helping when they can. Very positive experience. I marked only 4 stars for parent involvement. In truth, I do not know if that was accurate. I did not get to spend much time at the school. The feeling was that there was parent involvement, less so, however then my prior experience where the "parent volunteers" seemed to outnumber staff and ran the school. AEES had a nice balance.
Academy Endeavour is on of the best schools in School District 20. A school full of dedicated staff and wonderful students.
Sure the staff is friendly and everyone has a smile on their face. I'm very disappointed with one teacher who is incapable of doing her job. Mrs. Hough is a grouchy older women who has said condescending things to me and my child. I would tell every parent looking to not go here!!! Now we can't change teachers because the class sizes are too full. If you truly want your child to go to great school you have to live in that same neighborhood to get a spot there. Don't go here!!!! :-(.
Love this school! Staff and teachers are so caring and tons of parental involvement makes for a great school. I especially love the TAG program, which my daughter was involved with for three years. Having a full-time TAG teacher is unfortunately not too common anymore. Ms. Reynolds is awesome, and the students are challenged in a variety of ways. The school has had some growing pains, mainly resulting in quite a bit of traffic at drop-off/pick-up. If more families would walk/carpool it would help a ton.
AEES is a wonderful school, my three children have enjoyed all of their teachers and the employees really seem to enjoy being at school. We switched our children from a neighboring school and could not be more satisfied. Come tour the school they are always welcoming to families being around. Lots of ways to volunteer and participate in your child's education.
We love AEES! The staff are awesome and all knew my son and who I was every time I come in. It's a very friendly school and they encourage family involvement. They had several different events throughout the year for families to come and participate in. The specials teachers are awesome (Spanish, gym, art, library/computers and music) and so is the administration. I really felt like all the staff loved being there and cared about the kids. It was more than just a job for them. I even loved their pick up drop off policy. We bought a house in the AEES area just so our kids could go there and we were not disappointed. Unfortunately we are military and now have to move on, but we'll miss AEES!!
We LOVE this school! It is amazing. Outstanding staff, quality of instruction. Super happy family with this school! Thank you Academy Endeavour!
Outstanding teachers and a warm office staff make this school a homerun for any parent! Thank you so much!
We love this school! They go above and beyond to accommodate the kids and make them feel good about themselves. They are a warm and welcoming school with great staff all the way around. We moved here from MI last year and we came here based on the parent reviews and they were all right. This was the best decision for my kids.
I am very happy that my daughter is able to attend this school. The staff is friendly, professional, and always available. I have enjoyed all the extra-curricular opportunities that has had. Academically, I am pleased with the progress my daughter has made in first grade. She has progressed from basic reading when she entered to a third grade level. Overall very pleased with the efforts and dedication of the entire staff.
This is our first year at Academy Endeavour and I am so glad this is the school we chose for our son. His Kindergarten teacher is fantastic and he is loving school and thriving academically. All of the staff and leadership in the school make you feel so welcome and I am very pleased with the academics and core values programs they incorporate into the classroom.
My daughter has attended kindergarten and first grade there. I am absolutely thrilled with her experience so far! The teachers work really hard with each of the kids and there is a ton of parent involvement. I love the way the reading groups are by skill level so my daughter can learn at her own pace. The staff is amazing - warm and supportive. I would definitely recommend AEES to anybody.
Simply the best staff and teachers! We recently moved from Okinawa Japan & our child had to transition in the middle of the school year, which is very hard. We looked at numerous schools & stopped here! Other schools were not warm or welcoming - from the time we walked in, we were greeted as we were part of their family. The academic curriculum is challenging & demanding but not stressful on the kids as other schools in the local area are known for. This school is about respect, good values, learning & growing into responsible citizens. They have a positive reinforcement program is outstanding & discipline issues are rarely heard of because the principal & vice principal actively engage each student & honestly care for them. Everyone on the staff knows our entire families name & truly cares for our child. We regret that we are moving from such an academically successful school, from teachers & staff that truly care for our child s enrichment & having fun at the same time speaks volumes to the professionalism & support they give. Our child has bloomed in your great environment & has become stronger, wiser & happy because of you & we Thank You! We will miss you AEES!
Our experience with Academy Endeavour has been wonderful. Every time we walk into the office, we are greeted by name. They even know the names of my two little ones that don't go to this school yet! The teachers we have dealt with so far have been amazing. The reading program is very effective. I have one child reading well above grade level, and another in kindergarten that is well on his way there. They have structured their reading program to allow advanced students to work together and give them the chance to excel. They also get lots of computer time and love all of their specials (art, pe, spanish, music), We will be with this school for another 7-8 years, and I look forward to it! I really can't say enough wonderful things about the teachers and staff at this school.
Great school! Our child currently attends this school and we have nothing but positive things to say about Academy Endeavour. The principals, administrators, teachers and the rest of the staff are truly welcoming people who really care about the children. As in the case of a previous review, we transferred our child from a not-so-friendly school within the District and the boost in our child s confidence and self-esteem has been amazing. Our child s teacher works great as a team with us parents and truly cares for our child as a whole individual. Or child now comes home happy and relaxed. Academy Endeavour provides our child with a safe, friendly and caring learning environment that not only understands our child s academic needs but also provides the social emotional support our child needs as well. Their positive reinforcement program is well executed and the support our child gets from the teachers and support staff has made our child feel part of the Academy Endeavour family. Our child is no longer walking on eggshells, instead is learning great academics, good values and maturing.
I love this school! I have two children, one in first grade and the other in fourth. They have been in running club and art club. The teachers are great and the office staff makes you feel so welcomed. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.
I cannot say enough about Faculty and Staff at this school. My daughter is at the end of her first grade school year. Academy Endeavour is a warm and caring school that focuses on the whole child and not just their test scores. From the instant you walk into the office, you feel like you are part of a family. My daughter transferred last year from Academy International which I found cold and lacking in positive enforcement. Principles and Administration were dry and 'showy' with no real empathy for students in my opinion. The difference shows each day when my daughter comes home from school glowing because her day was not only a good learning experience, but fun-filled too. Her confidence has risen incredibly in just one year, and that is what is really important in the early years of school if you ask me.
Our family relocated to Colorado Springs in 2005. We are now in our fourth year with two children attending Academy Endeavour. This is a wonderful school with a warm, nurturing and ethical environment. As a parent volunteer who has spent many hours at the school, I have experienced this same professionalism from that point of view as well. The reading program teaches to each student at an appropriate level and the technology program is outstanding. My children are demonstrating what they learn every day! An added bonus is that this school does provide on-site before and after care which is very convenient for working parents. If I could give Academy Endeavour more than five stars I would. It is a great school!
i love this schoo. my child loces it and it is a wonderful learning enviorment for all
I wish I had more space to tell you all the incredible things we've experienced at this school. Our kids have gone to 3 different private schools in 2 states and we never experienced the professionalism and genuine care that we have at Academy Endeavour at every level. To sum it up, the staff from the principal/asst principal on down truly care about the kids. They make the school feel like a family. The staff seem to really enjoy being there and it shows in their comraderie and how they interact with the students and parents. We've experienced them being proactive when they see a child has a need and deliver solutions to help all. The school also has good test scores but the kids were also taught to think and understand what was grasped, not just score well on a test. This school is the best of the best!
