Our kids have had great teachers and have enjoyed their years at Battle. One has loved art while the other has appreciated being in e3, the program for gifted students. As parents we've had many chances to be involved in their school life - from chaperoning field studies to helping at the annual fall festival. Having our kids near our workplaces instead of at their zoned school 20 miles away has made it easy for us to attend parent events and even to drop in for lunch on occasion. We're always impressed with how many parents participate and with how well behaved the students are. The school just feels like a special place with student art displayed everywhere and happy faces on the kids AND the teachers.

We chose Battle for our child because we wanted him in a stimulating and diverse environment. Battle offers its students a variety of learning experiences so that every child can learn. Students attend art, music, PE, Spanish and library weekly. The multiple intelligences theme means that different learning styles are respected, and the School Wide Positive Behavior plan encourages kids to make good choices. We think our son is prepared not just to move on to middle school academically but to continue to grow and learn. His experience and ours has been overwhelmingly positive.

This school is HORRIBLE. If you are considering sending your child to this school, think again. Most of the students that go to this school come from disadvantaged homes and are children of gang members, thugs, and drug dealers. Profanity is used frequently and the teachers will call Child Protective Services at the drop of a hat. This is all personal experience from sending my daughter to summer child care at Battle. She attends Normal Park during the school year and has had absolutely no problems there, but a couple of months at Battle and she's learned all sorts of profanity and picked up bad habits. Disgusting. Can't say it enough... THINK before you pick this school for your child. You WILL regret it if you send your kid here. Take this as a warning.

Progressive, highly committed, caring teachers make the difference at Battle. Plenty of after school enrichment activities. Great facilities. Strong ties to the community.

We have three students at Battle and find it a great place for them to learn. Any issues I've had I've been able to address candidly with the teachers or administration. My wife and I are consistently impressed with how are children are being challenged and cared for there.

I have experience different levels of experience at Battle Academy coming from a private school. I have a Kindergartener and a Second grader. My kindergartener has had a wonderful experience at Battle and my second grader has a yearning to go back to the privated school in which he came from.

I am a parent of a special needs child. In February of 08 my child had a very limited vocabulary. After spending the year (thus far) in Kim Hays's room, she can now hold a conversation. Where once I thought her father and I would never hear her truly speak, tears come to my eyes and happiness in my heart for Ms. Hays and her program that gave my child a voice! It's truly amazing what Ms. Hays can do and we will always be grateful to her.

I am very pleased with the quality of educational instruction my child receives from Battle. When speaking to each of my child's teachers, I feel that each one has developed a personal relationship with my child as an individual. They are interested in nuturing the individual which is very important to me. Furthermore, our child participates in music, art, Spanish lanuage, and physical education classes. These extras create a well-rounded individual. Every couple of weeks workshops are offered which create a learning experience where parent and child develop a relationship centered on education. My wife and I are very please.

Battle Academy is a wonderful place to work! I love the children and their very diverse families. The staff is super and everyone goes the extra mile for the kids. We realize that each child is unique and strive to foster growth and development in each one. I have taught school for over 15 years and I have NEVER worked in a school were each teacher truly LOVES where they are and what they do! I not only work here but I also bring my children here as well. I would encourage any parent to check out Battle when trying to decide where to send their children.

Battle Academy offers all learners the opportunity to learn the thinking skills needed to meet the intellectual and social challenges of the new millenium! When you walk in the buliding, you can notice a difference in the physical and emotional environment (bright, clean, friendly hallways filled w/student displays and noise level in classrooms is positive and productive!) Furthermore, when you look in classrooms, students are engaged and learning through integrated lessons and activities. The student achievements at Battle are so multi-faceted that reading above grade level is a given for most and attainable by all. It seems there are no children left behind. This is reflected in the faces of the students and the increasing test scores. My daughter is more of a well-rounded intellectual in kindergarten than I ever imagined possible!

The academic program at Battle is exceptional! The children are provided the opportunity to participate in many activities that typically are not available to all schools. They are a NASA Explorer school, Multiple Intelligences Magnet, and an all around excellent place for kids. The staff is warm and welcoming. The school is bright and open. I am so greatful for a place like this to send my children. It is an even better place to work! I would tell anyone to check this school out when deciding where to place your child.
