Paxtonia El School 5

Posted May 04, 2015

My child studied here in 2nd and 3rd grade. He is always very good studies and therefore got into gifted program here. The Gifted program teacher made them do all sorts of stuff, from writing on different topics to brainstorming some new inventions of their own and documenting it. Apart from gifted, they have this program that if your child is good in any particular subject then he/she will study in the next grade math/reading, which gives them new challenges. Next, they have the EDMODO group, in which depending on the Reading Lexile level of your child they will be given certain books to read and they have to answer the questions online and can have discussion on the book. These details might sound quite common but you will realize the importance of the opportunities provided by this school only when your child will not get this later on in other schools. If you work a little bit with your child everyday then these programs can do wonders. I have seen it. As a parent I will give Paxtonia 10/10 rating.
