While the first few years were an excellent experience for my child, this year's has changed quite a bit. My child has not been challenged by the well rounded curriculum that is advertised and I feel that the administration change has a lot to do with it. I am glad my child will no longer be attending this school and will be given a chance to be a thinker and not a follower.

Challenger School has a mission to teach students to be responsible citizens, to be honest and respectful of others, to love and respect our United States, but most of all they educate and do so very effectively. Children leave the 2 !/2 year old class reading, and dedication to teach is priority. This is not a day care, a play day, or mayhem in class environment, it is not a Drama, Arts, or Performing arts school. At the same time watching my Grand-daughter perform beautiful winter and fall shows, seeing Art and music incorporated in her curriculum each day and watching her grow in each of those classed along with her other classes makes me so proud of her own effort and determination to succeed. Twice a day she has recess. The curriculum at Challenger School is well rounded and balanced. Not one time has my Grand Girl received unfair treatment and the teachers are always willing to help her if she struggles. This type of dedication is obvious in the environment of the school reflecting directly on the Head Master, Directors, and the Teachers.

I have enjoyed working as a teacher for the past few years at Challenger. I love that Challenger starts teaching phonics at three years old in the preschool program and then continues to build on that foundation well into the upper grades. As a teacher, I have enjoyed watching my students' confidence grow as they excel academically.

The administration people are awful especially the headmaster. They will make you repeat classes just because of shyness or because your son is active in class. they want kids to be robots. Thank God I'm not in that school any longer. Just don't wait your money, if you want your kids to be early reader just take them to Kumon. My advise is don't waist your moneyyyyyyy

Our child's school is Challenger located at Silverado (NV) campus. One thing that is very obvious when one enters a room full of children, a Challenger student stands out. To be more precise overtly they display all the characteristics that a proud parent desires. The first one, that one notices is there overall consideration and respect for there environment. This not only includes other children, but also there confidence in relating with adults and other problem solving issues. Secondly it should be noted, that they achieve proper enter action with kindness and intelligence to the most casual observer. Last but not least, it is obvious these Challenger students are becoming nurtured to be the leaders of the next generation of which we will be proud of!! This summarizes the Challenger way!!

I use to love this school but now with the new directors all they seem to be after is money. They will send you letters and make phone calls to you for a very small amount. One of my daughters is in a Per K class that has 2 teachers but 30 kids in it when we wear told they would never have more then 24 kids in a class. This school has really changed and not for the good.

Think twice on enrolling your child here, and know what you are paying for. The school doesn't allow kids to take home in-class materials. There is lack of culture in the school, a lack of accountability with the teachers (they put the accountability on the student), a lack of parental involvement and there is no PTA. There is no school principle, just a headmaster and good luck on getting access to any school records on your child. There is no discipline on students that act out either; they make students write an apology letter 6 times on what they did wrong. At the end of the year they have their award ceremony. If you child does not receive one, your child is still forced to attend and watch the ceremony. Students start learning basic multiplication in the first grade, division in the second grade and basic algebra in the third grade. Students start learning to read in late preschool. Often students are rushed to eat their lunches. Older grades are always scheduled to eat later than younger grades. Despite the growth of the school, teachers are often coming and going every new school year. Challenger is always hiring. Also, there are no field trips or no school library.

My boys have each attended this school since they were 4 years old. They have always been given firm, yet fair treatment, and they have exceeded all of their peers in academics and maturity for learning. We have been at the school for over 7 years. Through trials and tragedy, this school and their staff have been loving and supportive to our family and have always given our children a desire to learn and achieve and to work independently and challenge themselves. Their high grades are their rewards, they need no other incentives. They are so far ahead of their peers, it's ridiculous. When our friends have conversations with our kids. They always ask "what school do they go to? Challenger?? Keep them there, your boys are remarkable." Another thing I might add, at this school, the cool kids are the ones who get the good grades, the ones that the other kids strive to be like. And they monitor them closely, no cell phones, no texting, no electronics allowed. They leave the school when their parents pick them up. It's a safe and secure environment. I only wish they went all the way to 12.

My 3 year old son was enrolled and was accused of tripping a teacher. They immediately "dis-enrolled" him. While my son said it was an accident, even if it was not, a three year old does not understand that tripping someone could hurt them. If they believed our son was not ready for school, or had anti-social personality traits, they should have provided us some guidance (and maybe helped us?!!) in overcoming the obstacle. We did not argue the "dis-enrollment" because we would never want our kids to attend a school that handled the situation in this manner. In short, we can only deduce that they are money driven to enroll kids that are the easiest (and least expensive) to teach and do not want to deal with the "burden" of kids that might need extra help socially (or scholastically).

This school rates poorly in all areas. The curriculum may be touted as above average but that is meaningless if the school and teachers fail. And Challenger fails. There are many public schools in the area that outshine Challenger and I would think there are plenty of private schools in the area that can do better than Challenger in all aspects.

I have two kids at Challenger - a 4yo and a 2nd grade. I can't say enough positive things about the academic achievement both have obtained. Challenger teaches the love of learning in the preschool class and the pride of achievement in the elementary - along with an advanced classroom school work. The teachers have been very responsive when I had a question or concern and proactive in making sure my elementary student fully understood the concepts in class. I can't say enough good things about the school and staff.

My son has being attending the challenger school since he was 3 years old. He is now almost 10 and it is the great school and his siblings will be attending this coming fall. I can not imagine enrolling my children to a different school. The school is very advance academically and they teach to respect each others so there is no bullying.

Challenger school though it boosts of many benefits to its students has some definite issues parents should be aware of prior to enrolling their children in this school. First, the school may have supposed highly developed programs yet it does not communicate with the parents so therefore tracking a child's progress is very difficult. On many occasions my wife and I spoke with our child's teacher asking for more communication, the teacher to explain her grading system (as our child scored a 10/10 on the first portion of a test; on the second portion, which was on the same page, scored a 5/10 yet received an overall 50%, while 15/20 should equal 75%), and updates weekly which were not provided. As a parent who wants to be involved, this school and it's teachers make that more difficult. Second, as many other reviews specified this school is always focused on the results that matter to them, not on developing a child's social skills or interests in experiences outside the classroom. The students at an early age are pressured more, receive more homework, and are less socially experienced than this students in a public school.

My twin boys have been going to the preschool program at Challenger for 2 years now. They started with the 3's class and just finished the 4's class this year. My husband and I have been thrilled with all the things that they have learned through Challenger. They are reading...counting...learning about our presidents....etc. This is a real school...not your garden variety place that is really just a day care. Very happy to recommend Challenger to anyone.

Challenger gets an A+ for academics. Challenger provides a challenging program that our kids love. From the start, children are learning rules of phonics and spelling, grammar rules, poems, speeches, math facts, logic and more all while having fun. From what we have seen so far, a child educated at Challenger will be at least a grade level above public and private school counterparts. Challenger is not a school where every child gets an award or trophy, given so that every child can "feel good" about being there. It is really refreshing to be able to escape the mediocrity that is so prevalent is so many schools today, where standards are seem to have been dropped so that all students can feel great and get promoted to the next grade. Challenger is a unique school and with the good we have learned to take the bad. Some areas that could use improvement are: Parent/Teacher/Administration Communication - The school does not encourage proactive communication from parents. They do not have regular parent teacher conferences, no email contact whatsoever. Adopt Technology - Less paper and start sending emails! Class Sizes - The class sizes have increased by 20%-25% this year.

My child has went to challenger school for a few years now. This school was great intel my child hit the first grade. The classes are as big as public school with only one teacher. The the communication with teachers and parents is very poor. If your child happens to fall behind in firts grade they just keep moving foward without notifying you before its to late. They don't let the childern express there self they are like walking robots, and hope your child doesn't get an altercation because they won't notify you and then all of a sudden your child will be sent home on suspension for even get expelled. What Challenger doesn't understand is first graders are still young and learning in life, they expect them to be perfect and if they aren't they don't have time for it. I use to believe in this school intel my child started first grade and then I realized that all they care about is the money. They make u feel like your child isn't good enough if they have any kind of problems. It sucks that a lot of these private school have become so corporate and really forgot the true meaning of a private school. If you are thinking for taking your child here I would strongly reconsider.

This school has to be one of the worst private school I have ever seen. They classes are large the teacher don't care if your child falls behind there is no communcation between parents and teachers. They don't let your child express there self at all. If your child mess up at all they make them feel like they are a bad kid. They will suspend or even expel your child for the littlest things. I'm disappointed in myself that I wasted any of my time or money at the school.

My son is in the 3 year old preschool program and my husband and I could not be happier! Our son loves the teachers and staff and will push us out of the class room to leave. We are amazed with the level of education he is receiving in a preschool class. He is already reading at a 1st grade level and asks us to write sentances with him! If I can, I would have him in Challenger until he graduates high school.

Both my daughter and son have attended Challenger beginning at 2 years of age, and we have had nothing but a great experience throughout all of our years there. The teachers are all very nurturing and supportive of the students and their individuals needs. The staff is very consistent with their policies, which made the communication process very seamless. Both of my kids received an outstanding education and social skills from Challenger, and I am forever grateful that their first years in school were so impactful. Although there are costs involved to attend Challenger, we felt that it was worth every penny. You can't put a price on this type of education, especially in the most important years of a child's development.

Challenger-that's my school! I could not dislike this school if I tried. The staff has been so understanding with my sons transition to a real preschool from daycare. He had a rough beginning, but they stayed consistent with their behavior management techniques and hung in there with us. He is now starting to read at 3, he knows his numbers and can sing me a new song everyday we pick him up from school. My wife and I also love that this school teaches about liberty and values. Go see it for yourself, the bad reviews on here must be bitter about something other than Challenger.

Wow. I have rarely seen a posting board full of so many ghost written entries. It is very obvious that either the staff or the teachers have been hard at work writing pretty little things to overcome the serious drawbacks of such a school. The children are like little robots and are not allowed to express themselves in school which causes behavior issues in the home. Worst of all, I am comparing the study/class materials used by Challenger to places like Kindercare and I am regretting my decision to dump so much money into Challenger. I now know that I was keeping up with the Joneses. What a waste.

We love this school. My 3 year old son attends Challenger at Silverado. He is reading and loves to read at home. He can't get enough of activity books that include spelling and counting and even beginning math. The staff is great, esp. the preschool director. We wouldn't go anywhere else. They are teaching him to think for himself and to be a leader. Who wouldn't want that for their kids?

I am a student at Challenger. I absolutely LOVE it there. Compared to all my friends, I am the smartest, because of the challenging acedemic programs. The teachers are great, and friendly, though they teach strongly biased things on the government. The principal is welcoming, and friendly, but also able to listen to a students arguments if they get sent to the office! This school is absolutely WONDERFUL! I highly recommend it, though i go to the LONE MOUNTAIN campus, not the silverado campus! Challenger is a great school that teaches children to be individuals, to respect the rights of others! Challenger is overall AWESOME!

I'm amazed after reading some of the reviews. I have been sending my children there for 5 years now. The curriulm is amazing but so are the teachers. My children love each and every one of them. The front office has always been warm, welcoming and helpful. Yes there is a fun field day on the last day of school but there are also so many other events throughout the year which the children are excited for. The children are so proud when we see them at Western Days, eat with them at their Thanksgiving Feast, sing to us at the Winter and Spring programs. They show us their proud work at the Spelling Bee, Speech Festival, Young Author, and Science Fair presentations. The children receive an amazing education and learn to respect themselves and the rights of others.

Like the curriculm, some teachers are fantastic, but usually they end up leaving, because the adminstration is so bad. I have spend lots of money at this school. I don't regret it because I feel my child did get a good education (especially compared to public schools in Vegas), but if I were to do it again, I would have chosen a different private school. The school is so sterile. The administration is so cold. We have raised our child in a nuturing, loving environment. Challenger does not parallel our teachings at all.

My daughter has been at Challenger for going on three years now. She loves it. I am amazed daily at what she learns. Her teachers in the elemetary program have been phenominal. They truely care. I do have issues with Challenger policies. For as much as we pay for the education, you would expect the staff to 'hear' parent's views more readily. It is the Challenger way or the highway. The senior office staff seems to be above all. They don't really care for parent involvement. I also feel that they try and instill certain values in my child that I do NOT agree with them having the right to instill. They have no library. They have no field trips or anything truely fun until the last day of the year. I feel that the kids are missing out on some of the fun of being little.

This is my daughters second year at Challenger. We love it. We took her out because we relocated but have re-enrolled her because we were so disspointed in the other private school we put her in. I agree that they are very structured and by the book, not allowing the kids to really express themselves at all times, however I think all the other benefits out way this one aspect. They are taught to follow rules and I expect my child to do so in a classroom enviornement. I have never had an issue with the front desk staff as I've read others having. They are super friendly, professional and helpful. My daughter is 4 and came home telling me about constanants and black holes. There is no pefect school out there, but I feel my child is safe here, facility is clean, staff has been friendly and curriculum is impressive.

I chose this school for my children because of their excellent academic curriculum. Kids here are certainly doing work a grade level above their current year. Although the work is intense at times, the teachers manage to keep students focused and active in the material presented. Homework is at times excessive, however, well worth it, as you look back into the school year. Parents are always encouraged to communicate and to stay involved with teachers. My kindergartener is an excellent reader and my third grader loves to write stories. They feel confident and proud as they compare themselves with other kids of the same age. Mrs. Seitz is one of the most dedicated teachers I have ever met. She genuinely cares for her kids and their performance, even when school's out... You would be so lucky to have her as teacher! Haven't found the perfect school yet but this one is close!

Academically, Challenger delivers what it promises. We have withdrawn our child from Challenger because of the teachers' and administrations' inflexibility. Because of their rigid adherence to their curriculum, philosophy, and strict time schedules, they just don't use common sense with children. When we disagreed or asked for an accommodation, our child was slighted in the classroom. The curriculum works, but beware, you may end up with 'Stepford' children.

The school does exactly what is expected of it by teaching independence, self-reliance, and 'logical skills'. Our son is 4 years old and is already reading to us.

I find it appalling that people complain on here and yet still send their children. GO see for yourself and meet the incredibly dynamic administration, the friendly front office staff and the wonderful teachers. (Many of whom have been there for the 5 years my children have been attending.) In fact, the only time my preschooler had a new teacher was because his previous teacher became deathly ill. This school teaches responsibility, independence and high levels of academics. My children's biggest complaint is that they don't want to leave extended care! You hear it all the time. This school has been a rock for my family. Many valuable members of our community send their children here for the same reasons my husband and I do. See it for yourself folks..Go and take a tour! Hands down-the BEST education in the valley. Thank you Challenger!

This is my son's 6th year at Challenger. We have been at the school since he was three years old. We completed the pre-school program and he is now in third grade. I also have another child now enrolled in pre-school. The curriculum is phenomenal, the teachers are amazing. We have had great years and one year that was not so hot. There have been complaints about the staff turnover or lack of extracurriculars on campus. That being said, every school has a bit of administration issues. The curriculum is what really sets Challenger apart. We are paying a lot of money to send our kids to a school that is focused on results, personal responsibility, choices and hard core academics. The school is highly successful there. We can get the sports, music and art outside of campus and our family does. This is the best education we've found in Vegas.

Both of my children are enrolled in Challenger. They are enjoying the school and their teachers. We have been very impressed with how much our children are learning. Our kindergartener is reading at a second grade level. The only problem is the staffing issues. My son has had five teachers the last three years, of which three have left. My daughter has been with the school five weeks and already has lost a teacher. 2 kindergarten teachers left last week, as well. Is it the administration? If they are as difficult for the teachers to deal with as they are the parents, I would say 'yes'. There is a lack of concern on the adminsration's part when it comes to the parents. As a parent, I would do anything for the betterment of my children, but I have found Challenger's policies and lack of respect from the administration tough to take.

After removing my daughter from 2 schools in 1 year, the 1st another private school, the 2nd a public school that was suppossed to be better than the rest. They lost her physically 2 times, without any worry. I pulled her. I took 2 months checking out many private schools. I finally found Challenger and placed her. She has been learning some amazing things and she LOVES school! I am disappointed in the after school, or non-extra activities, they are very expensive and not worth it. However, my experiences with the front desk staff, not always good, but the teachers she has had, have been wonderful! I admitt it is a problem once she gets to 3rd grade, then were do we go? Overall, I love the learning environment, but the price is going up yearly and the staff ever changing?

Excellent, academically-focused school that stresses self-reliance and logical reasoning in its curriculum. If attendance is declining it is because the school refuses to lower scholastic standards to ameliorate the objections of malcontent parents.

As a Challenger parent, I have found that it is sometimes necessary to tell the administration if my child's homework load is excessive. I understand that homework should not take more than an hour at Challenger. If it takes longer, you should talk to the teacher or the principal. Also, if my child focuses on completing his homework, and doesn't watch tv, play games, etc, he is able to finish much faster. This school is not for everyone, but I'm so happy my family chose to go.

It is so hard to find a school that delivers on its promise; a solid education for our nations future. Public schools continue to fail parents, and private schools are too often carbon copies of those failing public schools. Challenger provides an amazing education! Challenger focuses on delivering the foundation children need to be successful later in life; thinking skills and a desire to continue learning. The emphasis is on achievement! The Silverado location is doing a great job of keeping true to Challenger's mission. I highly recommend touring and signing your child(ren) up at this school! Sincerely, A very satisfied and relieved parent

Challenger's priorities are not in the children who walk thru the door for their education. It is the funds their parents bring to the school. Never have I seen a more unorganized, mismanaged staff. There are a handful of great teachers there who really do care about their students which makes it unfortunate to have incompetent Directors, Principals and front desk staff representing the school.

My child has been attending Challenger since preschool and I must say that it is the best school hands down. Even though there are not many extra curricular activities, my child and I can go elsewhere for the 'extra's'. No other private school in the valley offers the academics that Challenger does, and no one teaches the self reliance and discipilne like they do. They never stray from the mission. If you are a parent looking for the 'social' aspect of school, you can go to the competetion, but if you are serious about education, this is the route to take.

I chose Challenger for the academics and fun learning environment. My child loves the learning and has actually learned to do his homework on his own. He brings it to me check or if he has a question. His confidence and maturity are direct result of Challenger.

They have wonderful curriculum, but they don't have good Principal and teachers. They try so hard to get more students in Kindergarten classes. They don't care about parents. They don't care about students. They do care about collecting more money.

Husband and I agreed that giving our kids a solid foundation for their education would be a great start. We decided to continue sending our son to Challenger after kindergarten because we were very pleased with the experience.Big mistake! I was highly dissatisfied with his teacher from the beginning but decided to stick it out. My son had a hard time adjusting this school year and class assignments were and continue to be very unclear. Much frustration came after meeting with his teacher only to watch her play with her hair and look into space without offering any suggestions to help the matter.and the chaos while picking my son up after school is rediculous. Is there a reason that Challenger doesn't offer the music, art and gym classes without the extra cost? The PreK program, administrator, and teachers are great but personally and unfortunately it goes down hill after that.

The preschool program is phenomenal and the preschool administrator is sharp. Challenger gives a great foundation for any child, but beyond kindergarten, I would not recommend it. Up until this year, we have loved the Challenger program. My child has been in it since age 3. However, the program is only as good as the teachers and the administration. It's a shame that a previously great experience has been ruined. I am not sure what we are paying a premium for anymore and will also be moving my child to another school after this year concludes.

My daughter has attended this school since prek. It has been great until this year. She is now in in second grade and the quality has gone way down. They just can't seem to get it together. Her teacher doesnt grade her work/homework and after discussing this with the principal I am told he is not required to do so. The homework is simple additon. She mastered this at the begining of first grade. For the kind of money we are paying it is not worth it. We are considering transferring her to a public school with gate classes. Anna
