My child went to this school and it is a JOKE! It is nothing but a diploma mill and has significant dicipline issues. There was only one teacher at this school that could keep order so that the kids could learn and he is gone now. Now all the kids do is watch movies all day. The administartion has people in the community fooled and scammed. They do not care about the kids, they care about the Mc Kay money. If they cared about the kids they would create a learning environment. Do not send your kids to KLD, they will not get an education or be able to advance to college. The graduate numbers that they share are false and the kids that go here do not have success after "graduation".
KLD Learning Center has been a blessing for our family. Our daughter has struggled in school for the past three years. The public school system would not/could not accommodate our daughter's IEP. She attended 4 different schools, along with enrolling in Virtual School before finding KLD. They have provided a caring and compassionate environment which allows our daughter to remain focused on her work. Consequently, she has excelled and actually is eager to attend school every day.
KLD is the best private school in Brevard County. The school is involved in every aspect of my childs education. They treat each student like their own. She attended other private schools and Never received the quality education that she has gotten at KLD. The staff and teachers go above and beyond what they are asked to do. She is taking classes that will have her prepared to enter college and for her future endeavours.
Wow you can tell this school actually rates itself and that is pathetic! My child went there in 10th grade and learned absolutely nothing! I am livid at the fact that this school portrays itself as faith based and a foundation for our youth, but in fact uses the religious aspect for funding, hence Dancing with Brevard and does NOT put it into the curriculum or classroom. My child left that school with an American Govt credit and did not even take this class, so that is an example of how poor the school is. If she would have stayed there I have no doubt she would never have been prepared for college and that is sad. The other reviews are correct about bullying and vulgar issues also. Disgraceful!
Superb School! The teachers are involved and active. The staff is friendly and willing to meet with you on a moment's notice. The students are nice to each other and to others. There is no bullying, rude behavior, or suggestive dress allowed and it shows in the well-behaved students.
Awesome School! So far, the teacher involvement in my child's learning has been the best in his 8 years of education! Keep it up!
It's amazing how clueless and arrogant these negative parents are. All they do is listen to what their kids may be saying instead of actually checking out their concerns. I've been attending Pillar for the past few years and any concerns I've had were worked out because I actually talked to the principal about them. How degrading do you think these terrible reviews are to the students? The reviews are completely out of control with insulting us students and the ones who see them take great offense to them. Our school is not a bad school. If you don't like it then don't attend and keep it out of your life if you think it's so horrible. Don't drag innocent people down with you.
Are you kidding!? I was told by another parent thats child has attended for over two years about your site and the rating you have giving Pillar.... You are soooo wrong. This school is the reason my student is advancing and even in school. It is an excellent school!!!
If anyone is even considering this school, I have one piece of advice....Don't. Maybe the younger children cannot convey to their parents what is going on, but my son could. Stay away, don't waste your money and most important your childs mind. Parents of students attending, go with your feelings. If they are telling you that this school is no good, believe those feelings and react accordingly. With this post , if I save one potential student or one attending student from this school, than I have accomplished my purpose.
WOW! I warn parents to check out the truth before passing up this school. I believe in its mission, its work with young people, and its effective education. Don't just trust what a stranger says - check it out. I have been there since the beginning and my son is 100% better off than when we started.
This school has been a huge dissapointment in every way it can be. Favoritism, lack of concernity for student's education, lack of safety, constant bullying and fighting among the peers, and vulgar offensive foul language spoken every minute in the school. Lack of communication from the staff and teachers to the parents is another huge issue. As a parent, I am concerned about what is going on at the school, and my child's overall progress at the school too. The environment that all the children are placed in is worse than a rough house, there is constantly negative behavior among the students. There is no discipline at all, the teachers/staff just ignore what violence is going on around them. But one thing is for sure, Pillar Institute needs at least three security guards or more, because the staff is not experienced at all to handle these type of children.
My children have gone to this school for one year. It has been a huge disapointment. The unstructured environment is uncalled for. You might think so what. What school doesn't have dicipline problems, bullying problems, and vulgar cussing? But your wrong, this school's environment is a thousand times worse than an alternative public school's environment. Think twice before sending your children to Pillar Institute where the environment is extremely unstructured and poor. This school's environment will affect your children physically, socially, mentally, emotionally, and mentally in a severe negative way. The academics are also poor, and the teachers don't go out of their way for you like some schools do. You won't find anything Christian, proper, and right at Pillar Institute because everything there is immorally wrong. ~ A Concerned Parent.
Pillar Institute is not a good school at all. Infact, Pillar Institute is so bad that it should not even be a school at all. Pillar Institute does not provide complete primary prevention services for the youth, and is not a safe place for an effective education. They do not encourage or teach students to make healthy positive life decisions. They do not strive on teaching academics or helping any student. This school is not a Christian school, when constant bullying, fighting, and cussing happens. Discrimination and favoritism is also a serious issue there. The lack of discipline among the students is uncalled for. The safety issues are another serious concern. At this school they do not care at all. The environment is worse than an alternative public school environment. The social/physical environment of this school will effect your child physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually in a negative way.
I'm sorry but I have to give this school a below average rating. Its not the best school in the world. There's a whole ton of bullying, cussing, drama constantly, its sickening. I'm not learning anything academically and its not a good social environment. There changing everything this year and I don't like the changes. I'm also disapointed that most of the excellent, well educated teachers are quiting. I'm not staying at this school much longer that's for sure. Count me out for next year, unless they change the way their doing things fast. Pillar Institute is not a Christian school, neither is a good school.
This school is unsatisfactory. There is constant bullying, cussing, and inappropriate behavior among the students. This is not a Christian environment and a positive atmosphere for any child to be educated or socialize in. I am disappointed because the first headmaster ran the school perfectly, but when he left the school went downhill like a flash of lightning. I am disenrolling my children right away. This is no atmosphere for my children to be in. The environment at this school is like the environment of a alternative public school but worse. Do not send your children to Pillar Institute, they will pick up bad stuff and not learn anything.
I dislike this school. It is not a Christian environment at all. There is inappropriate behavior, cussing, and horseplay. This school is worse than an alternative public school. I was happy the first year, but once they got rid of the first headmaster, I remained unhappy. I am disenrolling my children right away. Although the teachers are well educated and care more than anything, that will not change my opinion on the environment my children are in. There is constant bullying, favoritism/discrimination, and there is nothing 'Christian' about this school anymore. Do not send your child/children to Pillar Institute, or you will be making a mistake that you will regret.
I do not like this school. They say that this is a Christian school when it is clearly not at all. Let me explain why. First and foremost, a Christian school does not have inappropriate horseplay of any kind, vulgar cussing, constant bullying, and lazy students that don't care to learn or put forth an effort for anything. A Christian school does not allow constant fighting, disruptions during classes from students, cheating, stealing, lying, or inappropriate physical contact of any kind. A Christian school does allow vulgar gossip and rumors. Christian schools do not allow students who constantly disrespect their peers, fellow classmates and teachers and staff and allow them to get away with it because that student or students are labeled teacher's kids. That is favoritism and discrimination of others and no Christian school allows such behavior. Pillar Institute allows all of what I said a Christian school doesn't allow.
awful school: cussing, inappropriate physical contact, horseplay, scamming, bullying, inappropriate disrespectful behavior, lack of discipline, favoritism, discrimination, lack of safety, and they call it a Christian school. This is not a Christian School at all. Pillar Institute is an awful school. Do not send your children to Pillar Institute!
