I believe they would rank much higher if other languages than Latin were offered and they need a larger building! This is why I can only rank it at 4 stars. I love that zero tolerance for bullying is not just a statement. I have witnessed the time the staff takes to teach appropriate behavior. I love that the children are taught how to behave appropriately. I have seen some behaviorally challenged children either conform to the norms of the school, or leave altogether. I appreciate the administration staff who are great listeners and responders. They truly have the best interests of the children at heart. I appreciate the fact that they worked with me and my child individually to make sure their education was personally catered to challenge them. I love the fact that they address issues head on until a solution is reached. I love the fact that they are approachable and personable. There are OUTSTANDING teachers at every grade level. I love the commitment, dedication, and genuine love for the children. I love the close attention to the academics needs and what is necessary to move the children forward in learning process. I certainly recommend this school to and do.
Good school. I could really see the difference in my kid over the last two years, he has been at Huron Acdemy. The teachers are very good at giving feedback to parents on the child's progress.
HURON IS A WONDERFUL ACADEMIC COMMUNITY, and they continue to progress by remaining current in their continued goal of offering their students the most current curriculum approach to learning; through daily Character Education, News Paper Club, Science Olympiad, The Art Club, Sewing Club, Recycling Club, etc. Not to mention over 300 hours of free before and after care to all Huron Academy Parents. I drive 25 minutes past several schools each day and it is well worth it for the sake of my children who absolutely love school and love learning from the wonderful staff at Huron Academy!
I find it sad that a parent would resort to name-calling because they are unhappy with their child's teacher. (It makes me even more sad to think that one would feel it necessary to single out one teacher by name. I don't really think that was necessary). The teachers at Huron Academy are dedicated professionals who care immensely for their students. I have been extremely pleased with Huron Academy. The entire staff (administration, teachers, parapros, lunch, janitorial, etc.) wants the best for the students and in the time we have been at Huron, I have been able to see how hard these teachers (as well as the rest of the staff) work to create the best possible learning environment for the children. As someone else said, the wait list speaks for itself! Thanks Huron staff for all you do!
A caring highly academic environment with a character education program that my kids love! Great teachers and administration too, and welcoming to parents too!
I love the small class sizes, the curriculum, the uniforms, the character education, the parent community, the PTC and the GREAT teachers. Perhaps that's why i've stayed for 11 years!!!
Teachers are the best. They are caring and truly want all of there students to succeed. Our teachers will do what ever it takes to get there students to do there very best. All staff in the school are all here for the same thing the students and helping with there future. enc
GREAT SCHOOL!! Academic programs are awesome, teachers and staff are the best!!
The education is outstanding! Not only are they teaching our children the basics at higher levels, they are also teaching character traits such as Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Kindness and others. These teachings reinforce what we teach our child at home. The PTC does a great job of keeping the families and children involved with the amazing staff as a community, it takes a village and this is what we have.
Huron Academy is the best school ever because it has a dress code and smaller class sizes it makes it so much easier for our children to learn. Our school is a coummuinty, everyone is friendly and you pretty much know all the parents and students. You can help out at the school all the time and it is not frowned on. We are so happy with the school and I highly recommend this school to anyone that is not happy with their school or who are just looking for other options!
Best principal ever! Amazing teachers! Great values! The list goes on'
I am extremely satisfied with Merritt Academy, a true answer from God. Public and Private schools are second to what Merritt Offers. With smaller class rooms, teachers focus on students individual needs, and are able to work more of a one on one basis. Though uniforms are worn, they offer students to wear jeans once a week. Character building is taught, progress reports are sent home, and extra curricular activiites are part of the offerings at Merritt. Teachers are upbeat, truly concerned on the success of each student, and will go out of their way to see the student learns. If President Obahma reads, this, PLEASE, OFFER ACADEMIES, MORE FUNDS, to continue the excellent job they are doing, and do not compare them to public schools, when doing budget cuts. LONG LIVE MERRIT ACADEMY. Mr. & Mrs. Nepa Now, Teachers, are Terrific. They
We are in our 2nd year at H.A. and love it! They are everything that public schools are not. The focus is on academics, positive reinforcement, small class sizes, self-acceptance, responsibility, respect for others and individual attention for all and distractions and disrupptions second. In public schools, you always have to remove the distractions and improper behavior before the academics can even come into play. My 1st grader is performing at a 3rd grade level and loves school! The administration and educator are incredible, they go the extra mile, which something else that is limited in public schools, they can only do what the school system allows.
Huron is a wonderful school. Out daughter was transferred from a private school into the kindergarten. The school is wonderful with special needs children and treats everyone with respect and dignity. Their all day K doesn't waste time with naps and she is happy, learning and catching up. Latin is a wonderful addition and even though there is no gym, my daughter loves her PE class and constantly raves about it. The special Ed is second to none. Everyone works for your child to succeed. There are constant rewards for good behavior. Her teacher is wonderful and very helpful in the transfer from her previous school in the middle of the year. We love Huron!
In my opinion this school does not compare to our local public school. My children attended Huron for 5 years. The kindergarten and first grade are the best you can find, but the older grades can not compare. My chilgren were lost when they changed schools. They were behind socially and academically. Now they are were they should have been from the start. Huron needs to catch up their curriculum to be competitve with the public schools.I now feel my children are getting the well rounded education they deserve.
My son attended Huron academy for 4 years then I had to switch his school. I was very nervous at first since he had never went to public school. I was relieved after the switch. The public school has so much more to offer then Huron did. My son was behind in math and reading but with hard work and dedicated teachers he has finally caught up with the rest of the class. I never new what he was missing I am so happy with his new school.
Huron Academy is a nice safe school. The school is well run and the staff are very professional and helpful to all and everyone. Very strong curriculumn
Huron has been a blessing for us. We came from a private school that we were unhappy with and we were not sure what to expect from a 'charter school.' Let us tell you, Huron has exceeded our expectations in many areas. Do we 100% agree with everything? No. But in general, you never agree 100% with anything. All that matters is that the important issues - academics, teachers, discipline, respect - are handled the way that we would like for our children. Our children are SO HAPPY at Huron that we can't imagine going anywhere else (we wish it still went up to eighth grade). We feel that they treat all of the children equally, special needs or not. We volunteer on a regular basis and see the smiles on all of the kid's faces - the kids at Huron LOVE Huron!!!
