My son has attended Challenger now for two years and is currently enrolled in their full day kindergarten class. The teachers are exceptional and the environment is amazing. He is reading at an almost second grade level and does math at a first grade level. They just completed their science fair and the kindergarten project as well as presentation were amazing. The kids here are cared for and have such high esteem thanks to great support from all staff. We'll definitely continue at Challenger. They teach to a much higher standard than the public school system and the kids thrive!

My son is in his third year at Challenger. He loves it, and has made great progress. He is in the first grade, but probably reads now at a fourth or fifth grade level. He is already adding and subtracting two digit numbers, and solving math problems with understanding. Almost every school day he informs me of an interesting item he learned in science or geography or another subject, often something that I did not know myself. He has gained much confidence in his conversations and relationships with people. All his teachers have been excellent, in my opinion. The administrative staff at Challenger, from the headmaster down to the custodian, have been nothing but professional and competent, and always friendly and open to parents and students. The school is well organized with a calm and safe environment. It has my highest recommendation.

This school treated my son like an animal. He ended up getting very upset one day (4 yr old, he had a tantrum over a toy) and they did nothing to protect his safety. He nearly sustained a concussion when he fell to the floor in tears. Totally untrained in early childhood development. We will never step foot in this school again.

My child has attended Challenger for 3 years and is now in Kindergarten. They foster independence while providing an excellent education. There is not just a focus on reading, but also math, science, geography, history and music. The teach how to be a great American. The classroom runs smoothing and the teachers and the headmaster care about the students. The headmaster knows not only the students names, but also the parents.

Challenger Preschool is excellent, lots of fun and very instructive. Challenger teaches preschoolers independence and encourages them to learn how to do it themselves. Our experience in 3 year old and 4 year old preschool have been great. The school has a nice community and is diverse which is such a bonus here in an area with not a lot of diversity. High standards and a great activities and challenges make Challenger standout.
