Washburn Academy 5

I loved the teachers and the curriculum. Both my kids graduated from Washburn Academy. I feel that a substantial part of my children growing into socially aware, caring human beings is from what they were taught at Washburn Academy. Academically Washburn Academy is top notch. Both my guys love to study, have been able to choose what they wanted to do in life and their education is above the level of people their age. The school staff is very much involved with the students and parents which is what I was looking for in a school. The school is also involved very much in community projects and this I feel is very important also because our children our the future and to have a school that really works on that is very important. You get decent, caring, responsible human beings who happen to be well educated to boot.

Loved the environment of the school. When I met this person, she was the deciding factor why I chose it. My children felt the same way. The method of teaching I found was so fun and hands on that I wanted to go to the school also :-)!

Yes. Totally. Respect comes from being able to produce, to give back, to be a contributing member of a group. You become able in looking at others with a view that everyone has their place and worth in the world.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

Totally. This school does many projects with, for examples, food drives, for the less fortunate. Participates in cleaning campaings. Helping raise funds all sorts of causes. Being exposed to other sectors of society where people need help is very important in a person's emotional development. Children need to understand that they build and empower their community with their actions as adults. One is never too young to learn to give back to the community, to lend a helping hand.

Because it teaches what it is to be responsible. It is very involved in community issues and shows kids where they can help in being part of making things better by participating.

Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

During my time there I witnessed many students reading or doing math problems far below their age level. I saw no evidence of history or geography; literature, composition, or political science, civics, social studies or religion being taught. In fact, most of the teachers there are either related in some way or are prior students. I'm not aware of any teaching or educational credentials they have

Washburn Academy
Amount of homework: Don't know

To my knowledge, the school had a no homework policy. My child never had any and the students in the work study program could not leave school until 530pm or later, so it's hard to imagine they had homework
