Not only do they work with paraprofessionals to give the disadvantaged students additional help and support, but they also Implement techniques to help challenge the gifted children which is what I appreciate even more. Sometimes gifted children are left out but at Huron Academy they Implement very unique strategies and approaches to engaging them.
I have met many teachers at other schools who don't go One Step Beyond what they are job description might say. At Huron Academy school every teacher goes above and beyond and I appreciate their commitment to the students.
In general I feel that homework is an antiquated approach to learning. I understand why they do it and their approach to doing it is effective but I would encourage them to think outside of the box and come up with alternate methods for reinforcing principles learned throughout the school year.
Huron Academy is a private school experience with diversity and unique experience that you would receive from a non traditional School. I absolutely love the program, the teachers and staff are amazing, and the personalized attention is unparalleled. My daughter who is a high performer in certain subjects had a custom program developed for her which allowed her to work on content with higher grade classes when needed and returned to her assigned grade level for others. They went above and beyond whenever I raise a concern or question and I just love the school overall. Don't get fooled by test scores alone. The reason why this school's growth score is so high is because they make sure that each individual student reaches their potential. It may be different for every student. But you can rest assured that your students will grow. That's what matters.
Huron Academy has a great Administration Team. The Teachers are dedicated and put in long hours and team teach. Parents are always welcomed to help out at school. All classwork is sent home weekly in a special Monday folder to keep parents informed of the students progress so their is no surprises on report cards.All students have daily agenda's to keep the parents informed of classwork and homework. The Teachers always stand outside the doors every morning and great the students as they come in to class which I think is great! I think most of the Teachers there love teaching and do a great job. My only complaint is the traffic on 16 mile is a nightmare for pickup. The parking lot is small and congested during drop off and pick up.
