Hello fellow parents, I'd like to share my experience at Success Academy Williamsburg. I have a daughter in second grade. I was worried it would be too hard, too strict etc. I have to say, I'm blown away by the level of care and commitment to my child. They not only have shown her how to access her own style of learning but have allowed her to feel a deep sense of respect for herself and others. My son who is entering K this fall. He has a possible neurologic condition and has trouble with stairs. Naturally I am worried how he will manage and keep up with other kids. The Principle, Abby Johnson is so kind and accessible and has a wonderful background on educating the whole child. After our meeting she requested to have a playdate with our son to get to know him so she could make an informed recommendation. At this point we are evaluating the situation. We are looking into a 'Health Para'. Whatever we decide I feel that they are partners with my finding the right solution for my son. My children's individual needs are truly taken care of - I can't say enough great things about this school. Geraldine Bien
My daughter began first grade at Success Academy this academic year and I am so glad to have made the decision to apply. This is an outstanding school where the curriculum is challenging and engaging and the staff are energetic, motivated and seem truly excited to teach every day. There is also open communication between the parents and teachers, which has allowed us to pinpoint my child's specific needs and cater to them. She has progressed wonderfully these few months she has been at this school and I could not be more pleased. I am very excited to have my younger daughter begin kindergarten here in the fall.
This is my child's first year & I am pleased by the teachers & administration. They are wonderful. There is a wealth of communication between the principal, teachers & office staff with the parents. It's great to see that the teachers are caring & enthusiastic about their work. I will update my review by years end.
