This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
Our family has been part of the Einstein community for the past 6 years and can't say enough positive things about our experience. The teachers, staff members, students, and families at this school are wonderful people who really care about one another. Since the classes are kept small, the teachers are able to differentiate learning and help each student reach his/her potential. The students are respected by their peers and teachers, which provides a supportive and welcoming environment conducive to learning. The students are challenged here without being stressed out. Our 2 children enjoy going to The Einstein Academy and being part of the school community.
This school is truly one of a kind! The teachers care about each and every student and challenge everyone without stressing them out. Absolutely a remarkable educational atmosphere for academically talented students!
Exceptional teachers who are willing to work with the kids, partner with parents, and leverage each other's skills for the best possible outcome for the kids. The families are great too. Our kids have been at 3 private schools due to moves. This one is a gem and well worth the investment.
I have been at this school for the last six years, and I'm currently a junior in high school. I started at the Einstein Academy when I was in sixth grade, and I am so happy that I have been able to expierence my middle school and high school years here. The high school program is a fantastic program—the teachers are so caring and amazing. The English teacher is excellent, I've learned so much from her than any other teacher I've ever had. Same with the Latin teacher and history/science teacher.
A downside to this school is that we have a very small high school. The high school has a total of nine students, myself being the only junior. But having a small class has become an advantage. I am really close to everyone in my class, and some I would even call my second family. I would much rather have a small class but have everlasting bonds with everyone than be in a huge school where I only know a small percentage of people.
Another factor at the Einstein Academy is our homework. Coming from middle school into high school, I became overwhelmed with how much homework was given. I came to handle it, and now I can say because of the homework I have learned a lot. We have a book report due every trimester in English, daily homework in Latin, and many hands on projects in both history and science.
Another thing I enjoy at TEA is the fact that I am able to interact with all age groups. Whether it being walking the pre-k and kindergarten children down to the creek behind our school for our water testing day, or helping with field day, we are always willing to help and interact with all the younger kids. Another specific interaction is Big Panther Little Panther. Our class came up with an "organization" within the school where we bring our school closer together as a community.
It's coming to the end of my junior year at the Einstein Academy and I cannot believe that the year has gone by so fast. I truly love this school and I am excited to come back next year as a senior.
Every teacher cares about their student's education as much as the child's parents do. Education is a team effort between parents and teachers, and the relationships formed between parents and staff make a double whammy towards the child's success :)
The children begin learning ethics and integrity from age 4 :) Respect is first and foremost- for teachers AND fellow students. There is NO bullying... not only because it's not allowed, but because the students respect their fellow classmates enough that it never becomes an issue.
As you read the reviews, take every "1 star" review with a grain of salt. It's sad to say, but there are spiteful people out there that simply can't accept that a small school could have such well-rounded and incredibly talented students. I work with gifted children, and I can honestly say that watching how the children are taught at this school gives me hope for our academically talented youth. This is an AMAZING school. Truly a benchmark for parents to use as they consider their options for their own child's education. I know FOR A FACT that my daughter would have floundered in any other school, but here she has completely thrived! She LOVES learning, and that alone is worth every penny.
My son has been a student at this school since Kindergarten, with a two month break during 4th grade when I tried sending him to the local public school (St. Charles District 303, supposedly a pretty good district). I don't think I fully appreciated what he was getting at Einstein until I did that. He came home from the first spelling test in 4th grade with 100% right. When I congratulated him, he told me that the spelling word list was the same one that he had done the first week of school the year before at Einstein - and the next few weeks proved that to be true. They were reading a book in his supposedly gifted Language Arts class in St. Charles that he had read in 2nd grade at Einstein. And the week I put him back at Einstein, his assignment at the public school had been to read an 8 sentence "Weekly Reader" article and answer some very basic questions - whereas the assignment that week at Einstein was to write a 5 page "mini book" about the Battle of Shiloh! I had to put him back at Einstein - he was so far ahead of the public school curriculum - even their gifted program - that he was bored to death. He's thriving at Einstein!
I really can not say enough positive things about The Einstein Academy. This school has been a blessing to our highly gifted children and our family. The teachers and staff are extremely caring and the whole environment is nurturing. We used to have to worry about bullying at the public school. But here it is ok to be unique and my children LOVE coming to school and they learn at their own rate/pace which we love. This school is a diamond in the rough!
