Socrates Prep strives to be the best private school in Orlando teaching by asking instead of teaching by telling (lecture)." The Socratic Method encourages inquiry and debate until students master topics. The school has made all the difference in my son learning versus taking tests. In Mastery Learning, "the students are helped to master each learning unit before proceeding to a more advanced learning task." (Bloom 1985). Mastery Learning programs lead to higher achievement in all students as compared to more traditional forms of teaching (Anderson, 2000; Gusky & Gates, 1986).

Socrates Prep, a new school for motivated and talented kids, has exceeded my expectations. My son will be in the 9th grade this coming year, and we have had to school hop every couple of years in search of a program and environment that fits. In Socrates, my son has finally found his home away from home. The teachers are wonderful, the kids fantastic, the campus peaceful. Socrates has lived up to the promise of individualized care and attention, working with my son to help him achieve his academic goals, including allowing him to audit college courses for elective credit. If you're looking for a truly special place for your motivated and/or exceptionally talented child, Socrates presents the best the Greater Orlando area has to offer. And I should know, as we've managed to attend 5 schools, all of them good in their own ways, in 8 years :) Socrates stands out above the crowd!
