This is an AMAZING school. The preschool is by far the best. My 3-year-old LOVES going to school and cries on the days she is not there. Because of the cirriculum she is already reading at a 1st grade level. We have decided to move my oldest to a different school after completing kindergarten. There is far too much homework. She spends about an hour a night on homework, and I have been warned by other parents that it only gets worse as they get older. If you are looking for strictly academics and your child thrives on rules and discipline, this may be the school for you. My oldest is bright and very creative, we feel this may not be the perfect environment for her. The teachers and staff are great and truly care. But I don't feel it is a well-rounded education that develops the whole child.
My son went here for pre school it was great but watching the elementry school gave me the creeps why in the world they want to stress little people out with such an overload of homework and expectations is beyond my understanding. get a good education but hey relax they are kids!
I put my son in challenger 5 months prior to entering kindergarden, he loved it and is now in the 2nd grade. I find the teachers to be good, a little strict but that is because of the method of teaching they employ. Homework can be a challenge and a little over the top sometimes, they could relax it a bit. The office staff is wonderful but some of the parents are over the top. Overall I like the school and feel I am getting my moneys worth (yes it is expensive) but again worth.
my daughter is in pre-school and so far I've been very impressed at challenger. their academics is excellent and always well advanced than their peers in public school. my daughter is 4 and can already read and blend words. their teachings are very methodical and logical yet very fun - always in the form of songs. my daughter loves it! she enjoys going to school every day.
Very academic enviornment bordering sterile and millitant. Excellent academics, poor social structure, very few children have after school activities due to the intensity of the home work, even in Kindergarten! My daughter had to give up all sports due to 1 -2 hrs of home work each day. Unusual culture of people, no one speaks to each other or says hello. All business environment. Incredible academics but too unbalanced for my family.
WOW! My son is in Kindergarten at Challenger and is reading everything in sight. He has all the basics down pat after only 3 months! Swift pace, intense environment, but the results are outstanding and my son can't wait to get to school each day! It is a big commitment but my husband and I feel as though we are getting our money's worth each day. The results are quantifiable!
