Some subjects have a lot of homework, others not so much. Math can be a bit overwhelming, but I understand the way the program is designed to teach through lots of practice. I think it will pay off for our kids in the long run.
A lot of parents think there is too much homework. I think that the amount is fair and although we do spend around an hour on homework after school, it is easier for me to justify than in some of our previous schools where they homework felt like busywork.
I like the fact that discipline always is tied in to the school's values. Integrity is one of those values, but more importantly, I think that connecting behavior consequences to values builds character and makes discipline less subjective.
This has been a wonderful transfer to Collegiate Academy. My Kids are in 4th grade and 2nd grade. We came from Bradford Primary, let's just say how much my kiddos say that we are at a new school. We love the teachers and the families that represent our school. The Principal and Vice Principal are out every AM and PM with our kiddos. The staff are amazing and REALLY do care about our children and the families! This school is a wonderful blessing!!!
Even though my daughter has only been at this school for about 6 weeks, I have spoken to every one of her teachers and they know her better than any teacher at her past school. They push her, and that's a good thing. They also stay after school to support her when she hits a wall or has questions. There is a balance here I haven't seen elsewhere.
