AcadeMir is a great place to work. The owners are Amazing administrators. They always look after the well being of the students and parents. In addition they truly value their staff. Especially the ones who deserve their respect. I have been part of the school and can affirm that. AcadeMir feels like my second home. I am proud to be led by an admirable group of administrators, mentors, and managers like them. Their leadership and ability to get things done are an inspiration to us all(at least to the ones who really care about this profession) and really help make this the excellent school it is today. Sad to say some people come go to work with the wrong idea and false work ethics. In that case AcadeMir is not the place for you. Last but not least, they have inspired me and many other exceptional educators to go above and beyond the call of duty.

This is an AMAZING school. Your children will learn so many things and more. At just 4 years olds almost every child leaves academir knowing how to read, recognize different money, count to 100 and more. Every single teacher in this school is friendly, Amazing and dedicated, the owners are not. They have VERY VERY little consideration for the employers. Academir has lost so many people because the owners are very heartless. Great academics, great teachers, heartless owners.

I am a parent at AcadeMir Preschool. It is a shame that some parents write negative comments when things don't go their way. The only experience I have had is a positive one. It is true that they are about academics; and isn't this why we place our children here in the first place? It is also true that the owners like to be aware of what is happening in their school. Isn't this a good thing? I think so. This assures me that things will get done. As far as communication, I can only say that memos are sent home stapled on my child's book bag. It is also posted in their website, outside the door, and in their lobby's monitor. I was called this past month to discuss my child's VPK results. The owner and I had a very positive conversation. I was also given the owner's personal phone number at one point when I asked for it from the front desk. So, communication is existence and viable. For the past year I have dealt with the personnel at the front desk and can honestly say that it has been very pleasant and at times enjoyable. I am very happy and I am getting what I expected (love, care, communication, and education). I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS SCHOOL!

My son attended Academir for almost two years. I honestly have nothing bad to say about the teachers. However, there is a huge turnover on teachers because the administration is horrible. The person in the front office is super rude and is not helpful at all. The owners of the school discourage the teachers from having an open communication with the parent. Everything has to go through them and to meet with them was nearly impossible. My son was miserable in that school. As soon as I switched him, he was a completely different person. That school is all about academics and the kids have no time to be kids. It is very sad. As a concerned parent, please think twice before putting your child in this school.

All my nieces and nephews go to Academir and now my older son is attending. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this school. They always listen to the parents concerns and always attend to them as well. VERY EXCITED THAT MY SON IS THERE NOW! I know the elementary school is constantly sending emails to parents with updates, and the preschool sends little memos staples around the loops of the book bags. Lots of communication. GREAT SCHOOL . highly recommended!

My daughter attended Academir for 3 months and I decided to pull her out. She is 22 months old now. My daughter loved the teachers there but I knew very little about what went on throughout the day. They have a monitor system where you can login and view the daycare at any time but the cameras are focused in areas where the kids do not usually go. Once I asked the director if my daughter was napping well and it was hard to get a straight answer. They told me yes she was but I knew from her behavior she was not. After that I guess they fixed the problem because she stopped coming home cranky and drowsy but it was an example of bad communication. They also keep the air at 60-65 degrees supposedly to reduce the spread of germ when a lot of kids are sick. This never worked for my daughter because she was constantly sick and when I picked her up her little hands were icicles. I did like that my daughter learned many new songs and words while she was there. They also put on some really cute shows during the holidays.

Great experience, Academir really cares about your child education. My son has been in Academir since he was 1 year old, now he is 5 and he has learned so much. I took him to get evaluated to another school and he was way more advance than he was supposed to.

My daughter has been in Academir for one year. She has learned a great deal, not only academically but also intellectually. The teachers are good but I am dissapointed at the interaction with the parents. It is very difficult to speak to the teachers. To do so the principal must always be present and so, the level of communication diminishes. Overall, I think it is a good schools, especially for toddlers and preschoolers. However, they need to let the parents in a little more. I would love it if they had a PTA, for example.

I have my daughter in Academir since she was 18th months, she is now 3 1/2 years old and loves the school and teachers. I moved far from the scholl when she turned 2 and I prefer to drive 20-30 minutes every day and see her happy, and learning as much as she does in the school. I compared the curriculum and facilities with many other schools near my house and I still do not find one that is as good as Academir.

I have 2 kids in that school since 2003, and I've never had any kind of problems. I love the school, it develops hands, hearts and minds as well. They are always inspired and motivated. The many seasonal celebrations and festivals nourish the whole community, AND THE PARENTS ARE ALWAYS INVOLVED. They become excited and passionate about learning and develop into happy, confident, intelligent, creative and well balanced human beings. It is impressive the way my 2 child learns at this school, specially this year that they have combined classes. I can't say enough about the teachers and staff. They are patient, very knowledgable, and the children absolutely love them.

Both of my kids have been attending this school since they were toddlers. The owners of the school are very passionate and look out for the best interests of the students. My kids are learning at an accelerated rate and have acquired an excellent educational foundation that will benefit them for years to come. As a parent, I feel priviliged to have my child attend this school and I highly recommend it to anyone.

This is an awesome Private school. I love that I can log-in to the secured web cam and see my children at any time of the day, it gives me peace of mind. The staff and teachers are awesome, they are trained to this school standards which exceed public and chartered schools. I appreciate the personal attention my children & I get. I greatly enjoy all the seasonal activities planned for the kids and that parents are allowed to get involved and invited to special presentations. I admire that no nonsense is tolerated from any staff, parent, or child; this ensures the great quality of the school. My children have been with Academir since 2002 and into the future.

My child is currently attending AcadeMir Elementary. We are very happy with all the teachers and faculty. Parent involvement is always welcome and appreciated. We are very happy with the academics and would not dream of removing our child to any other school.

Academir is the best school my child has been to! She adores going to school everyday. They have a very enthusiastic staff and faculty. It is a refreshing thought knowing my daughter is being taken care of by such a great team! :) AcadeMir is 10 stars in my book.

We had our child in this school for a couple of years.Their acdemic was great!. The teacher last year was awsome could not ask for a better teacher. It was sad to see they lost the best teacher they have ever had. The parent involvment is terrible and the comunication with the parents is non exsistant. I was very dissapointed this year with this school to say the least. We chose to switch our child to a new school and she is still achieving all A's/4.0.They need to improve on people skills. Parents had way to many issues at this school.

Academir Preschool is a GREAT choice for anyone who wants to give their kids the best foundation possible. I have my middle child in their VPK program and I am amazed every day of how much she has learned. She is already learning time and money which are concepts that my 2nd grade daughter is just learning now in public school!!! I strongly recommend this school.

This an awsome school that goes beyond the grade level of education. The goal of this school is to have all the kids become honor students. All the teachers are wonderfull. Deffinately a school to have your child achieve greatness.
