Please remember when reading the disgruntled parent's review that there are always two or more sides to every story. No doubt RPA was too gracious to defend. RPA is the No. 1 school in the area which can be attested to on their facebook site. Enjoy!
We pulled our child out of the school for bullying issues. There was an unbelievable lack of concern from the administration over the ongoing problems that multiple children suffered while attending the school. One other family pulled their child out of the same class at Royal Palm for the same issue and series of incidents and another family pulled their child from the class at the end of the year. It is my understanding that the administration has changed since we were there years ago. In can only have improved since then. If I ever run into the old Principal on the street, I would punch him in the face.
As a grandparent, I am having the honor and amazement of watching 3 grow academically and spiritually at Royal Palm Academy (RPA). These children have bypassed my knowledge in almost all academic areas, and the oldest is only in 6th grade. The quality of RPA teachers and their teaching is beyond excellent and the joy-in-learning effect among students is evident. The children are growing up to be educated, informed, competitive, successful and Christian citizens under the tutelage of RPA. and its Principal, teachers and multi-activity directors.
I have two children enrolled at RPA. One is a 1st Grader (who has been at RPA since PK-3) and another just starting in PK-3. The education that my children are receiving is top notch, as is the spiritual values and moral values that they are learning. RPA offers a challenging curriculum, which places and emphasis on math and reading. My childrens' teachers meet, weekly, with the principal to discuss their individual progress. They do this for each and every student. The individualized attention that they receive is beyond my expectations!! My 1st grader is reading beyond his grade level (public school standard) and is also excelling in math. The school has wonderful art and music programs as well as extra curricular activities. The teachers and staff are second to none!! We are extremely happy at RPA and would recommend it to anyone and
I have been teaching for over 17 years and have been at RPA for 4. It has truly been an incredible experience. I can not see myself working anywhere else. I have learned more about teaching in these four years than ever before. Teachers are required to take an Integral Formation course that is an eye openner. charity is at the very core of our formation. Children are formed within all dimensions of formation, intellectual, spiritual, and apostolic. Classes are small and personal attention is given to each child. We have regular meetings with our principal to make sure that every detail is taken care of for each child. She knows each child by name, which is something I have never experienced before in other schools. Our teachers are truly special. I personally wish my daughter could live here so that my grandchildren could go to Royal Palm Academy.
Great school. I have learned a lot about different subjects. The teachers are very good about teaching their subject(s)
Our oldest child started at Royal Palm Academy as a preschool student five years ago. As a former teacher, I can truly say that the programs at RPA are top notch. Students are not only performing, on average, a grade level above in reading and math, they also gain confidence through public speaking, spiritual activities, and the nuturing environment of the school. There is no other school like Royal Palm in the Naples/Bonita Springs area!
My kids have learned so much in just the last 1 1/2 they have attended RPA... and they love it there!
Royal Palm Academy is an excellent school. Our child's teachers and the Principal of the school are fantastic. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to be receive an excellent academic and spiritual education.
Great School ! I currently have 2 kids there and will have my youngest child attend next year. Can't say enough about the teachers. My Kindergarter is reading at a first grade level already and her spanish is amazing. It is truly an amazing school.
LOVE IT!!! This school is sooo perfect for our child! I love that they educate the WHOLE child!Children experience the highest education,love of Christ, respect of others,community,and environment!All is available at RPA!
Royal Palm is a jewel in North Naples. I have never seen such dedication to Academics and nurturing children to be the best they can be, as I have seen at this school. My 4 year old gets computer, Spanish, Art, Music, and gym classes. Along with a wonderful and caring teacher. She loves the school and I love sending her there!
I have two children in Royal Palm. One in Kindergarten and the other in PreK. I was not really sure whether or not to be impressed by what my children were learning because I had nothing to compare it to. My Kindergartener is reading well, adding two digit numbers and carrying the one, subtracting, knows the planets, and almost more about the Catholic religion than I do. I asked my friends that have their children in public and private schools what their children are doing. They said they are reading and adding and subtracting to 20. I am very pleased with what my children are learning both educationally and morally. All the families at the school are very caring and involved. The downside is that the school needs money to expand their campus. Therefore, there are always fundraisers and pleas for more money. Overall, I'm very happy with the school.
My twin 4 year old go this schol and they love it. Academics are top notched even at the tender age of 4. They come home learning so much, they have computer classes, PE Spanish, Catholic education, leadership skills, character and behavior classes and a lot of music and reading. Extra curricular activities aboud with emphasis on arts and music. Very well qualified teachers are hired and they show their enthusiasm for their teaching everyday. The deep commitment to excellence is palpable from the CEO to the teachers aides that the parents are insired to be so involved in the school. This is one big happy family. We are highly recommending this school to every parent that wants the best education for their children.
The academic level is very high, yet balanced. The teachers we have are excellent and class sizes are small. There is a real focus on each child. Students are taught manners and virtues as well as their Catholic faith. They have music, art, computer and sports programs. This school is the best kept secret in Naples, but it is starting to become known and several classes have waiting lists.
If you want the best education for your children in a professional,safe, loving environment pick this acadmey. The children learn to have strong characters and to be leaders. The personal attention is unmatched anywhere. The students test 2.5 grades above grade level (on average) on standardized tests. It has a cosy family environment. The kids are respectful, creative and have smiles on their faces all day. My kids jump out of the car and run to their classroom each day! They come home nicer than I sent them. They are teaching them to be leaders. their motto is Live , Learn , lead. Call them!
