For a school who charges nearly $1000 a month for each child, the way they go about hiring their staff is extremely unprofessional. As students should get top priority, so should the way they handle hiring staff. The teachers are a huge part of the child's development. They lack on responses and overall are unprofessional. They put up a huge front when you meet them while promising candidates out of courtesy an e-mail whether you are hired or not. Do not expect this, they lie about a lot of things. For a school with high standards for their students, they should practice high standards for both their students, the treatment of staff and hiring of staff. If you go on a few other websites, you can read a few other bad reviews on how they treat people. Knowing this about them, I would never throw $1000 dollars a month for my child to go to a school like this.
They put up a great front. Yes, they may care about the students but the way they handle business is unprofessional. With the money that you spend monthly at this school, they should be proper in every way possible. Not just a "show"
Attending World Academy has taught me to try anything. I've done everything in one year that I never thought I would do in a lifetime. Whether it was sports, music, art or academics, I've grown as a person, and going to World Academy was a choice that I will never regret even for a second.
From day one in daycare, my grand child was exposed to sign language. What I noticed is that even before children learned language, they were signing and were not fussy, frustrated or prevented from give and take with peers, siblings and their families. Moreover, their ability to transfer this skill beyond the World Academy doors was amazing to behold. The children learned this early from a skilled staff and for some, it could be a wonderful career in the future. They continue this study throughout the grades and this stimulation makes them better students, more cognizant of body language, helps develop attention skills and is just alot of fun. I learned this in college years ago but to see my grandchild do this as a toddler at this school makes me stand in awe. Thanks everyone,
There is so much right about this school. It is student/family focused and teacher supportive. The facilities/campus are beautiful and the climate and culture is conducive to learning and safety. It is truly all about the children here. Curriculum is continually evolving and new ways of delivering education so that students embrace it are constantly being utilized. I am grateful I work here and that my children attended this school. The public system has formally acknowledged that our students are at least a half to a full year above standard grade level and the success of our graduates speaks for the quality of their foundation.
This school not only has a a great STEM program starting from early elementary but also strong language and music programs as well as after school sports programs such as soccer, track and basketball . Our children started as toddlers and have continued through elementary and middle school here. They are happy and enthusiastic students. We highly recommend World Academy.
My children have been going to World Academy for 5 years and I couldn't be happier with the pace of their learning and the positive environment at the school. My experience is that the teachers are all very capable and caring. They do an excellent job of tailoring the school work plan to the individual child's level and needs. I would recommend this school to any parent considering it.
