Only negative is some concern in regards to how school is administered. Hopefully new principal and admin are changing things. When it comes to the important stuff - teaching our children, Knova gets an A+. Teachers are excellent, great education program. Although a long day in school, staff balance structured learning time with recess on the new playground, play, and creative activities. Appreciate 2 teachers per classroom and number of bilingual staff. Able to give kids small group and 1:1 attention so that kids thrive!
Not your typical school, but that's why we love it. Have had both my boys there. One started in Kindergarten (thank goodness) and the other in 7th grade. Wish I could've started my oldest out there; his educational experience would've been so different. The staff and teachers know each student and who they belong with so there is a familiarity that can't be matched in a public school. Communication is okay, but that also depends on the parent; it's as good as the parent makes it. Of course the building and location could be way better, but if that's all I have to complain about, I'll keep my mouth shut. The sense of community at this school far outweighs that. When my children's grades are lagging or behavior is troublesome, it's addressed immediately, not punished. The staff takes a team approach. I'm confused why the school has such a low rating when my boys are thriving. We had many experiences before this trying to find the right fit, now I can't imagine them going anywhere else.
My son transferred from a kindergarten class in Spokane, WA to Knova in Portland, OR. My son is very bright and frequently got in trouble at his former school due to boredom. There was poor communication from his Spokane school in methods to rectify his behavior. Since he has been at Knova, they have pushed him academically to succeed, and he has not had ANY behavior problems. The one concern I had regarding his social skills in the new school was addressed that same day by staff and he is now thriving. I highly reccomend Knova to anyone who wants their child to succeed, both academically and socially.
I have two students that attend here, one has been there for K-3rd grade, great curriculum however teachers are strait out of school with a lot of turn over, my oldest has been there 4-7th grades also has an iep school works well with this. My to complaints in the level of communication with parents and teachers with no experience both very frustrating to work with! location is not a safe part of town with no playground there playground is a blacktop!
