Our child was in Kindergarten and he is in 8 grade now. We love this school because the teachers all work well and show caring with their students. They are serious in their academic teaching. The principal at this Excel school has a great admiration from the parents and students as well. We love Excel and the staff members! Highly recommend this school to friends and others.
This is a great school if your child can learn in a very generic at your desk all day reading textbook style. One of my sons does great, my other son has struggled with the curriculum and no other learning options are provided. If you want a school that will adapt to your child's needs this is not the place.
Amazing...a true treasure to parents who want private school education but can't afford it! This school is beyond all expectations. The teachers are involved and engaged . The principal is a true leader. The diversity is just what I was looking for. It models the real world.
My son is in the 8th grade now, and has been at Excel since kindergarten. We have absolutely loved this school from beginning to end, especially the moral focus aspect of the curriculum. I feel he is well prepared for high school and for life. The academics have been great, but mostly I feel that Excel has helped shape his character. I have found the staff to be very open to parental input. The community is very welcoming, too. We have a terrific group of families!
My kid go to this school and we all love it. The teachers provide a great teacher/students relationship to make kids enjoy coming to their class. Weekly Agenda let parents/students know what is teaching in the week and teachers will follow up with parents if their sent home notes or student's online posted grade/missed assigments is unresponding back. School always promotes safety place to our children, teacher will be on the playground , at the gate and any concerning to our kids at school will be address at monthly parents/principal meeting and the principal/staff members will follow up. I like to recommend this school to our parents in Grand Rapids.
We were exceptionally pleased with the elementary school, and we sent our kids there for their entire K-5 career. The middle school at Excel is their weak link: the staff treat the students poorly, with little to no respect. The academics did not prepare my oldest child for high school. The moral focus program is not followed by the teachers in the middle school, most especially the 6th grade teachers. It is a tragic truth that everyone knows, but is powerless to change. I would recommend the elementary school highly, and would highly recommend to get your children out of there for middle school
