This is the best School! Teachers and staff work together to provide the best learning environment .It is like a family.
My daughter went to school in 5th grade here. I would have sent her older sister here also and my 5th grader in to 6th if available. I have never seen her shine like this before. We moved a few times and she knows what other schools are like. She liked this one best and we liked the changes it had on her. She never did this well before. The teachers teach with love in this school. The students learn to love learning at this school. From the healthier lunch choices to the bus driver stopping right in front of our home. There hasn't been another school that has come close. My pre-k four year old goes here now. I was looking for some social interaction and becoming used to a school. It was an adjustment because she is a free spirit. She loves her new school and has to hug every class mate and her teachers before leaving with me. She pushes me out of the door to leave when she gets there. She has learned months, days, alphabet, songs, and much more and we are only a few months in.
I am a former teacher at this school, and I would NEVER send my own child there. The "owner" of the school and management company is a bully to all of his staff, and has run multiple schools into the ground. I have heard his nephew, who happens to be the "vice principal", refer to the school as a business. They are not interested in educating students. They only want to make as much money as they can before the school is forced to shut down by the Volusia County School Board. I assure you, there are many other options out there that are more beneficial for your student.
This is possible the worst run school I have ever witnessed. The management company is good at marketing a concept. But is incapable of teaching children. It is run like a clan. The teachers and parents are intimidated if they do not agree with the management company. When I spoke about problems I was ignored, shuffled and ultimately the child suffered. Do not send your child here, unless you expect them to fail. The paperwork was not filed, the children are not taugher, the plumbing is faulty. The worst part is I agree with the concept of learning and development. It is just it is poorly executed.
I found Boston Ave to be an excellent environment for the students, the teachers and staff all pull together as a team to provide the school curriculum for the students. I have noticed that the teachers and staff also work together to teach the students respect for each other and the staff. I would rate this school as a Great School and an A+
I love boston ave charter school. wonderful staff. very helpful and caring. my child loves going to school again thanks to boston ave charter school. they are rated an a plus in my book. you could not ask for better teachers and staff. they really listen to you and the needs of your child. they also let the kids use the bathroom when needed unlike some of the other schools. i will never understand the big deal about letting a child go to the bathroom. anyways thanks boston ave charter school.
Great community school---absolutely consider the whole child and their learning style. Large focus on community, values and hands on academia. Wonderful principal/s!
New Principal is sensible, diplomatic, and fair to all children. Well trained teachers are very in-tune to the needs of the children, and their learning needs. Children are treated like individual human beings instead of numbers. Especially like their emphasis on a No-bullying environment. All children are taught how to deal with conflict in a rational civilized manner.
I had a rocky start with this school and this school bent over backwards and did backflips to fix all my problems. My children love going to school due to the wonderful staff and teachers. Boston Avenue Charter really strives to do their best with the students and it shows throught the smiles on my kids faces when they get home. I Love Boston Avenue Charter School in DeLand Florida.
It feels like a private school with all the benefits and resources of a public school.
It's the best school in the area!!!! Our kids love going to school!!!
This school has helped my son relax in a learning environment. They serve healthy food choices freshly cooked daily. They encourage physical activity to build up cardio endurance. They promote a casual uniform dress code to eliminate any 'need to compete in dressing'. The staff is friendly and helpful.
They are striving to become a completely 'green' school and it shows from the activities in the greenhouse to lunches served in the cafeteria!
My children love this school the kindergarden teacher is the best with the children great teachers...
