The Souderton Charter School Collaborative is more than just a school - it's a unique community of student, teachers, faculty and parents working together to meet the individual needs of each child. From individual learning planning sessions before the start of each school year to tailored instruction that is appropriate for each child, the inclusive learning environment meets each child where he or she is as a learner. The results speak for themselves! The community is also highly engaged in volunteering and contributing to the success of the school.
I am very pleased with my son's progress at SCSC! As a teacher myself I know what to look for in a school and SCSC has it in spades!! SCSC has small class sizes (8 to 1 in my son's class), warm, dedicated, and caring teachers, supportive administration, rigorous academics, differentiated instruction, and a family oriented environment!! This school is perfect for my family!! I highly recommend this school to all parents. If you are looking for a school that is both challenging and supportive than this is the school for your child!!!
The leadership is genuine. The teacher's are there to teach, to reach kids where they are and help them find and use their potential. Each student has a voice and is heard. Parental input is not only truly acceptable, its expected.
We transferred our son from North Penn in 3rd Grade - it's the best decision we've ever made for him! Our academic and social concerns have disappeared. He was insecure and didn't like school. He was nervous and began stuttering at his old school. On the very first day, he bounded off the bus and said -' I love it at SCSC!!' These are words I never thought I'd hear from him!! He now has a love of learning, has made friends and has completely stopped stuttering. He now loves to read - and his report cards are near-perfect. Most of all - he's happy! The teachers are completely focused on the kids - the classes are small (17) and parents are very involved. It's everything I had hoped for in a school and for my son!
This school has well exceeded expectations! my son used to attend public school, and switching to scsc has been the best decision our family has made. No bullying and other nonsense, but lots of support and encouragement. His attitude towards education has improved dramatically. All staff are wonderful and the commitment of family and staff to this school is superb. Other schools should have such high standards of excellence. We also really like the democratic practices observed in the classroom by allowing the children to help shape their curriculum within reasonable boundaries. This school cannot be more highly recommended. What a wonderful choice in education to have!
Great school with professionals who care, children learn and the traditional problems in schools are not ignored. A perfect balance between mind and heart.
SCSC is a fantastic school! Our children are enrolled and we are impressed by the academics and the child centered approach. There are plenty of opportunities for in-depth study. The teachers are professional and caring. We couldn't be happier.
Academic rigor is evident without a 'teach to the test' mentality. Individualized attention occurs every day. And parent involvement abounds!
Probably not for everyone, but a definite blessing for our family. Our daughter was failing miserably in the public middle schools due to their inability to accomodate some of her probems (inattention, forgetfulness, disorganization, social awkwardness) and work on them w/o jeopardizing her academic opportunities. SCSC is able to place appropriate demands on her so that her weaknesses are lessening and her strengths are blossoming. She's a bright kid with lots of promise and is finally getting the opportunities she deserves. The parents are highly involved, are allowed to participate fully and can have meaningful discussions with the teachers. It may not be utopia, but it's definitely not a factory. Standardized test scores match or exceed the local elementary and middle schools. I could go on and on, but the limit is 150 words.
This is not a bad school, just not as different as they claim to be. The administration and teachers have abandoned many of the features promised in the charter and are using many of the 'old school' methonds. They no longer embrace child-directed learning, and individual learning plans are all but ingored. Parental involvement has been reduced to the usual non-teaching roles found in many traditional schools. The promised collaboration between the community, parents, teachers and students is non-existant. The best thing is that the class sizes are, for the most part, small, generally in the range of 16-18, with one classroom having 23 students. They should go back and revisit the charter to get back on track.
