Kingdom Academy exists with the purpose of preparing young children to succeed now and in the future. We base our educational program on a Christian foundation with the purpose of developing character and resilience in our students to face the challenges this world brings. We pray every day for the Lord to bless us with His wisdom and one day be called Faithful . Please visit our website to learn more about our program www.kingdomacademyschool.com.
It is hard to believe that this school year is over. My two little ones will be graduating from VPK and Kindergarten this year. I truly can say that Kingdom exceeded my expectations. My children's teachers have been very supportive of our family by being flexible when needed and welcoming my support as a classroom mom. My youngest one in particular is very shy. He needs constant reinforcement to succeed. He kept saying, "I can't read!" So his teacher made it a point to sit with him and review the weekly words. When he started reading them by himself, he kept saying: "See mommy, I can read!" It was truly a wonderful experience. I can't wait to see what the Lord has planned for my children at Kingdom.
The one thing that I love about Kingdom Academy is their commitment to the families. This week, I was invited to my child's class to celebrate me as a mom. The activity was very touching. I found myself crying and laughing at the same time. I am grateful for the high academic standards, but being part of my child s education is definitely a plus. It is clear to me why my son looks forward to going to school every day because he is going to his second family. Thank you Kingdom Academy for the peace of mind of knowing that he is well taken care of.
I believe the Director had the same vision as Moses father in law (Exodus 18:13-27). She had a dream to teach and raise future leaders at Kingdom Academy, but she couldn t do it alone, so she chose YOU! Teachers and Staff, you have shape-out-of my kids the best in them. As a parent I feel very thankful and happy to know that my kids are in a healthy place for a daily 10-hour shift with you. As a volunteer I feel loved by each of you and enjoy to come every Friday to be around you and the students! It s like coming to a party!! Each of you make the difference at KA, from the welcoming at the front stairs when you salute my children and ask me for my baby, to the exquisite smell, the decorations, the food, the activities, and the songs that surrounds this place, to of course, the time you invest in my children and other students with your academic skills, love, patience, and value you give them. So this Teachers Appreciation Week I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for my children and following the Director's vision: to build a life of knowledge and love in each student so that they can be conquerors!
Kingdom is more than just a school to our family. Since we brought our little there, it has been a wonderful experience. We believe that the education of our child must be complemented with a Christian foundation. That is what we have found at Kingdom. Yesterday was the National Day of Prayer. My child was told the importance of praying and was encouraged to participate in a school while activity. I am very happy with the staff at Kingdom, and I am grateful for their commitment to our family.
When our family arrived at Kingdom, we were looking for a place our kids would be safe and loved. But after getting to know the staff, we found more than that. Our kids are welcomed every morning with a smile, the activities involve the family, and I love Parent's Night Out. I get to go out and know that they are in their school having fun. I am very happy with the school and highly recommend it.
My opinion of Kingdom Academy is the best. Mi son has been going to Kingdom Academy since he was 3 years old. He is in 3rd grade now. The after school activities are excellent. I am grateful for the after school grant. My son is able to participate in early and after school care for free. His favorite activity is soccer. This week all of the students took the SAT's. I was invited to pray over the students and bless them before they started the test. It has been truly an honor to pray for the children.
As a proud parent, I love this school. It is difficult to explain the peace of mind I feel when I live my daughter every morning with loving and responsible teachers. The communication is excellent. The administration is very supportive. They have assisted me to obtain grants that help me pay my tuition. I am especially grateful for my daughter's teacher. She welcomes her every morning with a smile. I wish they had more parking spaces, but their assistance during the drop off and pick up time makes a great difference. I wish they would continue to grow into middle school. I know they say there is no more room, but I'll keep asking!
This school it's just money. Money don't care your child.... I'm agree with the parent they charge me for vpk program when my child was sick
My very out going daughter was very apprehensive to go to school in the mornings. We had an incident where after she was sick for over a week, we kept her home. At her return, I was told that we would be charged close to 200 dollars on top of the tuition. After another incident where the school failed to call me to let me know my daughter was sick, we decided to remove her. My daughter informed me that she told her teachers before nap time that she was not feeling well, and was told to go do her nap time, I was coming. I came to find her with a high fever, and expressing to me how cold she felt and had been trembling during nap time. I went to the school to let them know that my daughter would no longer be attending, and take care of whatever needed to be taken care of. After I left I received a voice message saying they had forgotten to give me the attendance papers to sign, that I should stop by. I received another call, this time the lady threatening to charge us extra and send me to recollection, even though we had already paid the month in full and 2 extra weeks. They are very unethical, it does not seem like they have your child's best interest at heart.
My son has been at this school for 2 years now. Though it shouldn't matter, but for this review I need to mention that he does not speak Spanish, nor is he of Hispanic decent. The good: The school is very clean. The teachers seem to really care about the kids. There is a certain positive vibe about the place and my son does like it. His learning has been decent as well... though I'd like to see more progress... his teachers consistently tell me that he scores very high and is doing very well. The bad: A few teachers have a very hard time with English. How are they going to educate my son who does not speak Spanish? Teachers send update emails to the parents. Sometimes those emails have so many mistakes, it's really just embarrassing. EVERYTHING costs money. Uniforms, water day t-shirts, field trip t-shirts, field trips, events, bring this, bring that, bring school supplies, EVERYTHING! Considering their tuition, they really should not be charging for certain things, or at least not that much. I can understand you sell a uniform at cost, but they are making money on them, and a lot of it.
Kingdom Academy is the epitome of learning. Since bringing my daughter to this school, I have seen her grown and surpass any expectations. I have seen her develop wiser, bolder, and imaginative. The school strives in hiring personnel who have a passion for preparing the children for a prosperous future. My daughter's teacher is a wonderful example of how a committed and inspirational teacher should be. Every day she goes above and beyond her requirements for the well-being of the students. She embraces their achievements and challenges them to the next level. She is not only a teacher but a mentor. I can say that after searching for an place with an educational system that embraces my child and makes her a "prodigy of the future", Kingdom Academy is that place.
It is a blessing to have my daughter participate in the Kingdom Academy elementary program. They actually care for the student s well-being a progress. My daughter's teacher strives for excellence in academics as well as discipline and redirection. During her time at Kingdom, my daughter has developed more confidence. She looks forward to go to school because she loves her teacher and is excited to learn.
I am a teacher at Kingdom Academy. During the afternoon yesterday I was in a meeting, so I was outside of my class. When I walked back into my class, all of my third graders yelled "Ms. Acker!!!!" I responded with "hi guys, I was just in here". They were so excited to see me even though I hadn't been gone that long. They responded with..." We know we just saw you but we love you, you are the best, we missed you." I am sharing this to say...no matter what I may go through in my personal life, I can always count on my students to make me feel better and brighten my day. Every morning that I walk in to work I find a sweet message written on my board from all of my students. It warms my heart. I truly love what I do and I am blessed to be able to do it with/ for such an amazing group of kids. I would like to thank each and every one of you parents for allowing me to teach your angels, and Kingdom Academy for giving me the opportunity to teach in such great environment. May God bless this new year!
If you are looking for a school that is truly dedicated to the educational, developmental and emotional needs of your child(ten) .Kingdom Academy is it! They genuinely strive for excellence and are dedicated in every aspect of meeting the needs of all students. My review is long over due as my children have been attending KA for close to 3 years. The teachers, teacher assistants, administrative, staff, and school support staff have positively influenced their growth. One of my children exhibited behavioral issues that was challenging and the principle verbally stated they would not give up on my child. With unconditional love and support from teachers and ALL staff, my child has excelled and overcome behavioral/emotional challenges. They offer a rich curriculum, a variety of extra curriculum activities, and an awesome summer camp program. My children are very happy at KA. Throughout the halls of the school parents will always see displays artwork and educational projects. Words are not enough but if I had to select 3 it would be Dedicated, Passionate, and Loving!
It's a really bad school. The director it's the most impolite person... she never help the parents.... this school it's really expensive. I have many problem in this school it's the worst school in kendall
I am a parent of a 9 year old. My child has been in this school since he was 2 years old. Our experience in this school has been wonderful and unforgetable. Throughout the years, the staff and his teachers have been magnificent with us. I could not ask for a better school that dedicates their time and love like this one. They are very professional and always willing to go the extra mile for us. I don't only see it with my child but with all the other children as well. I am very pleased and thankful to Kingdom Academy.
My grandchildren attend Kingdom. All of my worries about leaving them in their morning program dissipated when I saw the youngest one laughing and kissing his teacher. She is very loving and caring. I though it was going to be a place where he would go to play and have fun. But soon I realized that he also has to do homework! My oldest grandchild attends kindergarten. His teacher is very sweet. She made me feel welcome from the first day. I love the pictures she sends during the week of him engaged in classroom activities. Their hot cooked meals are like the ones I cook at home. I must admit, my daughter did a great job in picking Kingdom. I highly recommend the school!
I have had both my kids in this school and I recommend it. The teachers are fantastic and very caring! My older son learned how to read and write in no time. The teachers always communicated with us how our kids were progressing. My younger one is still in this school and could not be happier. I have never experienced anything negative.
Unfortunately I have not had a great experience at this school. Since very early on I noticed very rude and unprofessional behavior from Teachers and Administrative Staff members. I brought up several concerns I had as a parent to the Administration which only fell in deaf ears and left me very upset and frustrated. It is the worst feeling in the world when you try to give the benefit of a dought to your child's teacher and Administrative Director when incidents happen. But then left with ignorance and complete disregard for the child and parent who is trying to bring light to issues in the classroom. I had to leave this school due to many mishandled incidents and unaddressed problems with their system. My child cried and pleaded every day not to go there and now that he is in a new school has gone into his new class with a huge smile and a happy heart. A child should always be heard and a parents concerns addressed. Not ignored or swepted under the rug.
The teachers at Kingdom Academy truly care about the academic, social, and emotional development of their students. This is a great place to send your child.
