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
