I believe that this school s environment is not emotionally healthy or emotionally safe for children. In recent months, I have had dealings with the teachers that I found so disturbing, that my husband and I withdrew my child although tuition has been paid through the end of this academic year. I do not recommend sending a child to this school unless there is a change that includes additional staffing and regular oversight from another agency.
Chandler Academy is such a special place. The students and parents are so nice and supportive of one another. It is a true community where everyone including the staff, help one another. I love teaching at Chandler Academy because I get to see the light bulb go on everyday as all my students come to that moment of understanding and learning. When I taught in public school, I felt lucky to get that feeling once or twice a year. Also, I get to spend one on one time with each of my students every day; that never happened in public school. I also love the fact that I can get and use different textbooks and materials for each student to accomodate individual learning styles and needs. I really enjoy the multi aged classes and see the benefits of learning and community building with the different aged students daily interaction. The students and staff also get to interact with nature every day through interacting with the horses, ducks and organic garden on the campus. This is truly an unique and special place of learning.
Chandler Academy has been wonderful for my children. I would recommend this school through the eighth grade.The teachers really care!
Our two children disliked school before they went to Chandler Academy. In their former classrooms full of thirty students, they felt "lost" and "stupid". After the first few weeks at Chandler, my then sixth grade son said, "Hey Mom, I actually like going to school now!" The individual attention makes all the difference. Each student also has to take responsibility for making and meeting their weekly educational contract goals. They've even been asking to attend the summer sessions!
I have had two children attend Chandler Academy. One is at Georgia Tech on a full scholarship and the other is still a student there. I could not ask for a better experience. They both love school and learning, they both worked at their own pace and on their own ability level so they were never bored or frustrated. I would highly recommend this school to everyone.
Both of my daughters have been at Chandler Academy for two years. I could not be happier with their education. Each student has an individually created curriculum and they receive a great deal of tailored attention. The building is located in a beautiful area, with plenty of fresh air and space to play. There are two horses located on the property and the children plant their own vegetable gardens. I feel that they are building a strong foundation for the future in both skills and in a lifelong love of learning. My girls look forward to going to school every day. I see that some information has been posted that is critical of the school; I believe it was posted by a teacher who was let go, and suggest that the ratings posted by parents (both positive and negative) may be more reliable.
Working at this school I realized it wasn't a place for me. Students were not on any type of schedule and just did book work. This school holds traditional teacher directed instruction with little adjustment to curriculum. While I was there I also noted they were using outdated textbooks and workbooks. I would not recommend sending students to this school
Our son was failing third grade two years ago and we were desperate to find an environment that encouraged him to learn. We considered home schooling but due to our work schedules that was not an option. We were apprehensive at first, to enrol him into Chandler Academy, because it is a very small school on a farm, with only four or so kids per class. But that is exactly what worked so well for our son. When he started, Mr. Hudson tested him and designed a curriculum to suit our son's needs. Within just two months he went from a second grade to a fourth grade reading level. He is now in his second year at Chandler Academy and is on level and above in all subjects. The individualized attention and teacher's dedication make this school a true gem.
Excellent Teachers! Stong Principal! Challenging Academic Programs. I would recomend this school to anyone that is interested in a wonderful experience.
My son is a student of the very excellent Chandler Academy. When my husband and I enrolled him into the school, he was failing four subjects and was on the road to failing for the current school year. Chandler Academy's headmaster/curriculum expert immediately began testing our son and identified where the current system of education was failing. Our son was put on a tailored curriculum to address his individual strengths and weaknesses. We are happy to report that our son is confident happy and excelling. It won't be long until he is above his grade level. Chandler Academy is focused on getting your child from where they are, to their full potential. My husband and I wished we had found them sooner.

My children attended Chandler Academy. They received wonderful personalized attention. My son is Gifted, with ADHD and dysgraphia. He had been formerly hated school and writing. At Chandler, he reclaimed his love of learning. I would recommend this program to anyone.
