Seek Academy in a new member of Team Academy Charter School in Newark. Just so other can understand the help we are receiving for Seek Academy is that, this school was founded on a “we are the CHANGE we Seek…” so all are welcome. Seek Academy have a "Work hard, Be nice. Be the CHANGE" approach. This school embraces children with individual learning needs. Each child learning and attention issues are different. I can only speak for us and say we are getting more help then what is required on the assessment. After school active, notes on what services was giving for that day and how it went, recommendation on what to work on at home. My scholar is learning sign language and speaking much better. We are also getting pictures and words slash cards on what sound need to be reinforced at home and all of this is just for the IEP work, school work support is different. We speak to the specialist are a teacher every day. This school is just in the 2nd trimester of its first year the staff is great and easy to work with. Seek Academy will improve in many more area the more it grows.
This is one of the best Charter Schools in Newark. The teachers are student friendly and if you child is struggling, they are on point to help. The children love Team Academy and every morning these children are outside an hour before the school opens and the school opens at 7:20 a.m., that is how much these kids love this school. Someone previously on this review didn't like the Saturday sessions, I don't know what happen in the past, but the only way your child would go to school on a Saturday is if he/she earned a trip. There are no classes on Saturdays on trips and events. I am a Parent and I love Team Academy..
Team Academy is 100% committed to helping kids achieve their best potential with a profesional faculty and staff.
My son have been with Team since the fifth grade he has developed into a fine young man.The teacher are always there for them in there academics as well as there every day growth.I tip my hat to the staff job well done, keep doing what you are doing.
As a former student of TEAM i have to say it is one of the best schools in Newark. They make learning fun but also easy. They become more than a school they become family, you actually want to get up and go there. I remember in 5th grade by October i can honestly tell you i had memorized my times table, the same times tables that i had tried to memorize sine 2nd grade. An extrodinary school i recommend any parent who actually wants thier child to be something to enroll them in TEAM imediatly!
Wonderful school what can I say. Its an college prep school. Its setting up my child for success .
I strongly dislike theyre sister school(Rise Academy) because it is way to strict. Just like all Kipp schools including team. The kids have to gop to schoo, on Sat. stay untill 5pm,and they will not allow my child or any any of the others to skip grades when evry day my child comes home to complain that he was taught things he learned 2 yrs. ago and was sent to detention for going ahead on work.Also the way he was sent home with a homework notice for foggetting a period on his heading. i understand the choices of Kipp schools to helo our childeren and im not saying 4 them to change evry thing just to simmer down on the strictness
I'm a 7th grader at TEAM Academy and although i strongly dislike the school often we have fun as a TEAM and family and at TEAM there is a safe enivorment and a staff that you can talk to about your problems not only in school but also your problems at home.i love TEAM Academy.
I m the parent of a 5th grader currently attending Team Academy Charter School in Newark, New Jersy. This is an excellent - top notch school. Team Academy has exceeded my expectations. My daughter has learned more at Team in one year than she has learned in all her years in public school. I have never seen such dedicated teachers. They come early and stay late. Thank God for Team Academy!!!!
I love the school so far even though my son has been going there since this past august it has helped him become even more responsible. He love the school also he knows what he is supposed to do when he walks in the door from school. I am very pleased.
As a parent of a 7th grader. i would like to take tthe time to tell you that TEAM ACADEMY (NEWARK) is an outstanding school. they challenge the children on all levels. The teachers a dedicated and willing to stay late. Most of the teachers have own awards for teaching. You truly Brenda Holmes
I would also like to recommend this school to many parents who are interested in relocating their children;due to the upmost fact that one of their math teachers has won the ' teacher of the year award', and another won the literacy award for the best teacher in the united states. On top of that the school is free.
I would have to say this school is exemplary, from the teachers work performance to their work ethics. TEAM Academy instructors teach their students to be leaders amongst their peers which their performance demonstrates that excellence. TEAM Academy staff members are diligent employees. The students not only learn academic skills but are disciplined in a mannerable fashion.
I currently have 2 children attending this school and I would have to say I have never experienced a school like it before. The teachers are there day and should I add night, for these children. You can call a teacher after school hours to get questions answered. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to give their child the education that she/he needs. I have seen teachers in the school until way pass 7:00 p.m helping students with their daily activities. I want to say thank you to all the staff at Team Academy. I don't [know]where my children would be receiving this type of education if it wasn't for you.
