I have had my children at Huron for the past 3 years. This year I have finally taken them out. Mrs. Fillipi is a qualified Administrator, however, her skills with children and parents are very poor. I found that when 2 of my 3 children were picked on the administration was not open to disciplining the children involved. Also, it's always the same parents volunteering. Mrs. Fillipi will not even discuss getting paid lunch moms so the teachers are very overworked since they are with the kids almost all day with one 30 min break. Other charter schools have paid lunch mom's so the teachers can get a lunch together. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
I did not like this school at all! The work was too easy for my kids, (compared to public schools) and there is no after school activities. The teachers were very good people but not strict at all . The Kids were friendly and nice to my daughter. One good thing about this school was Mr.Chap, the social studies teacher, my daughter hated that subject untill she met him.
Academically, we have been extremely satisfied for the past 3 years. Our 2nd child starts in the fall. Concerns arise with the possibility of several outstanding teachers not returning in the fall. Also, the loss of great, active families due to inconsistencies in the middle school and addition of 9th grade, causes disturbing thoughts as to the long-term plans of the principal. We hope the good experiences continue and the administration realizes that the education of our kids is what is most important.
The education your child will get is excellent.I wish there were extracurricular activities for the children, I believe that would help keep the older children there. The teaching staff is excellent, there are a few stand outs, but all in all the children really do well.
I think that the principal and teachers are very in tune with their students. Academically speaking, my children are doing much better there than in the public schools. I would like to see afterschool activities, and I'm sure that will happen as the school continues to grow and improve. I will always recommend this school to anyone who asks. Personally, I found the principal to be very interested in helping my son. The teachers work very hard with students that are in need of extra attention, but not to the neglect of other students. I could not find anyone in the public schools to work with the children like that. And lastly, I like that there are smaller class sizes to help the children get personal attention.
This school has great academic achievement. The Arts and Gym class leave little to be desired. The teaching staff great!
Academic wise this school is wonderful. I question the motivation behind the principal if the children are her real concern; or is she more motivated in counting heads.
