Padua Academy 4

OK, this is a academic school for girls that are academically advanced. Every year the number of applicants grows. My daughter loves this school, however, coming from public school I am not sure how much information gathering goes into "accepting' a student. There is a placement test the girls take and I am not sure, but I think they base placement soley on these test scores. My daughter missed the next level up for class placement by 2 and 3 points and this was not evaluated by the school they just placed her in the lower level classes. So my daughter, who, in her public schoo, was in the highest level classes and the gifted program, is now in low level classes and repeating material that she has already completed. To say she is bored is an understatement! My advice: YOU know your child and what she is capable of, request changes to her schedule if you feel she can achieve more. This will impact my daughters future classes and college acceptance.

The education my daughter received was outstanding. She excelled in college and continues to volunteer. It was money well spent.

I now live else where on the east coast and have my children enrolled in another school, which is FAR better then Padua Academy could ever dream of being. I felt the school's ideal were to narrow, nor was the student body diverse, a very basic education, and rather old fashion for today's challenges.

I can not say enough great things about Padua Academy. My daughter was well prepared for college but also for life. The values and moral principles taught were in line what made her experience so special. My daughter loved the family atmosphere and the belief she is strong but soft still radiates in her life and work. This school is one of the best.
