I have a 7 year old son who started going to this school in the 2nd grade. I am absolutely happy that he got accepted because his behavior and attitude towards work has changed drastically. His teacher Mrs. Stevener is a dedicated teacher who pushes him every step of the way. They are academically challenged everyday and they have a great structure in place. Great school to attend. Parents who are involved in their kids schooling will love the interaction between staff and themself.
We are new to the area and I visited all available public as well as private schools for my fourth grader and decided in Niagara Charter. It turned out to be the best decision I could made for his education. The teachers and administrators are amazing and the quality of education is better than previous high priced private schools!
This school is based on the Expeditionary Learning model from Outward Bound. Having just completed its first year, the whole school is new. All children have music, art and physical education. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Choir, Drill Team, as well as many clubs are offered during enrichment time. Individual academic reinforcement is provided to assist students to reach grade level. Parent involvement is increasing. A Family School Association has been formed, and has supported events like: The Black History Social, Spirit Week, Ice Cream Social, and the Kindergarten Graduation. Two parents have also been elected to serve one year terms on the Board of Trustees. Overall it is a wonderful school, a place where I'll send my kindergartners, first grader, and my other two children when they are ready!
