Our children love going to school here! They come home so happy every day and talk about their school friends all day long. The teachers and priests are excellent and truly care for all of the children. The academic programs are challenging with customized instruction due to the small class sizes. PCA is a religious private institution which provides a strong moral foundation upon which is built confidence, good self-esteem and strong academic roots that pave the way for the challenging middle school years. We truly love feel this type of safe and nurturing environment is best for our children during their critical early years of learning.
Wonderful school. We have been here for 6 years and have 3 children in school there currently. Small class sizes, excellent and caring teachers, family environment, lots of parent involvement....you couldn't ask for more.
Awesome school, awesome environment! With a small teacher to student ratio (max. of 1:14), each child is given individualized attention. Not only did the 1st and 2nd graders score very high on their IOWA tests in 2011, but all 94 children from 3 years old to 2nd grade were immersed in an Orthodox and Hellenic environment in which the teachers and priests embraced them with concern and love. In the Fall of 2011, there will be a 3rd grade class and plans are in the making for PCA to advance up to 5th grade in the near future! PCA is a family-oriented institution where all are welcome & students are looked upon as individuals, not numbers. No child is overlooked. The teachers know their students' backgrounds, their likes & dislikes, their strengths & weaknesses, their good days & bad days, etc.. It's hard to experience this in a public school classsroom of 30+ students. What makes PCA even more unique than other schools is that they focus on the whole child, not just intellectually, but spiritually, emotionally and socially. We are so fortunate to have been introduced to Pythagoras Children's Academy. It's a hidden "gem", right in our backyard! PCA, keep up the great work!
Incredible school!!!! My daughter is thriving, she's a first grader performing at third grade level in all subjects, including math!!! The tuition is fairly priced. I'm not planning on returning next year simply due to finances but it's a struggle to leave because of the quality of education we're receiving. I'm afraid the quality won't be the same in the public school.
What a great school! My kids a thriving here! Class size capped at 14. Iowa scores in top 5% of nation. Great teachers! Sorry to be leaving. My second graders are performing at the 4th grade level. Lots of individualized attention!
