This is my childs first year attending the Oak Park campus in the pre k program and I must say Iam very happy with the development of my childs learning thus far. I have been told by other parents that the past couple of years at the school had become pretty crazy but from what I have noticed change has happened in a good way this year through them really trying to implement more structure. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THE OAK PARK CAMPUS TO PARENTS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE "I.S.D's". The teachers seem to have a genuine love for the students and the assistant principal Mr. Franklin really is hands on with the students and seems to reaaly want the best for them. Lord knows I hear my childs talk about him daily and I see the other students flock around him all the time , they seem to trully adore him.
My kids been going to AOD for 3 yrs and what I love the best about it is the pk program but it's really messing up there. Oh yeah, it's a parents catcher there so moms watch out.
Vernon campus is trash ......oak park campus is definitely trash..... This is a trash can school... They don't even have a gym ... The gym is where ever the classroom at... The curriculum is terrible .....principle curses u out and wants too fight ... Yeah u know who u are... She's the ugly lady with the twist braids last year at the oak park campus. Mad because your face is ugly too.. That's a personal problem... Yeah I said it....we were about to get in an altercation..she was not professional....this year it's still trash ....low money for the school....do not send your child here.......Focus learning academy ...aw brown ....life charter ...even the school next to academy of Dallas on Vernon campus are all great schools...
all i have to say is that Academy of Dallas (vernon campus & Oak Park Campus) are the best! i have my son there since he was in Kinder garden now he is 4Th grade i being notice his improvement day by day. i have to admitted in the past two year Academy of Dallas is being improving not only with the students also with teachers and dicipline. i love the dress code that the school have now.
I love Academy of Dallas (oak park) my son have been going there since he was 3 he have learned a lot. I love that the teachers work with them and keep the parents in the mix with everything going on with school and your kids. I would refer any and everyone to this school. Thanks a lot.
I can't wait to get my child out of this school! (Vernon Campus) Some of the teachers are just plain rude. They curse (yes curse!) at the kids & they are very insensitive to special needs children. One teacher has even been known to put her hands on the students! They have no problem with embarrassing your special needs child in front of the whole class. They say things like "If you don't get to work I will break your neck." Don't even try to express your concerns to Mr. Young the director. I have found that he laughs off what the teachers do & makes excuses for them. They have absolutely no tissue or soap in the bathrooms (gross huh?) I'm fed up with the unprofessional atmosphere that this school shows. Never again will my child attend here after this school year.
I enrolled my daughter in academy of dallas this past week and i must admit first impression is everything to me. The staff was very nice to me and down to earth. I will be back later to give my full review but as of now the school is excellent and so are the many personalities that occupy the school.
Academy of Dallas ( Oak Park ) I must say I absolutely love this school and it's teachers. My son is in Pre-K and by far surpassed other children we know that are in his same age group enrolled in other Pre-K programs.
Academy of Dallas (Oak Park) is an excellent school. My child has learned so much. Its structured as well as fun activities for the students. Academy of Dallas keep up the good work and keep educating the children!
my child has really progressed and the teacher is one of the best that i have dealt with even with private schools i am glad some there are some teachers out there that still care about the children. Thanks Academy of Dallas
The teachers are better than most private schools my child was at a private school with a so called good reputation for as academics were concerned but the previous teacher did not take nearly as much time to work with my child and now my child has made tremendous progress thanks Academy of Dallas. You have very special teachers!!!!
the food is horrible you rather go to the worst hotel in the country and eat their.then i got in trouble for calling a teacher fat head and i got expelled
the teachers are very rude to parents instead of trying to work with us they are confrontational and at mid semster i am switching schools i thought this school had better instructors this is sad for the children
Two of my children attended this school(PreK-1st)and this campus was the best of the two. The second campus is a different story. My oldest son (2nd grade at the time)was diagnosed with dyslexia and went untreated by the school the entire year. I've never met the counselor or principal regarding my son's curriculum. My son could not read in the 2nd grade! At all. And they just continued to pass him. They never modified his work to fit his needs or took the time as education professionals to counsel me on what to do for him. I hate this school for damaging my son's self esteem and not helping him to reach his potential.
This school is a big mess. The professionalism at the shcool is little to none. The school advertises all these programs that are suppose to be available but once you enroll you found out different information. My son was enrolled and fell below grade level. I pulled him out now he has shown great improvement.
I was at this school before the current one. The company that owns the school, CSAS, is running it for profit. My child suffered because money was not put in the classroom, school, or teachers. It seems like there should be some kind of responsibility on the owner's part to not let the kids suffer.
I feel that this school performance is low, do to poor teacher and staff quaility, parent participation is lacking, principal is not people friendly therefore why are you around children, to many non-sense rules, the guidance is not fully avaialble for the students. Parents not being allowed to voice concerns at meetings, or on one on one. Too many concerns have been overlooked. All this leads to low moral of the students. I thought that it's suppose to be all about the kids. Well at the Academy of Dallas it is NOT!!!!
I feel that this school is overwhelmed with things and duties it just doesn't know where to start. I have my child enrolled in this school and have been trying to find a school that will be able to help make up for the waste of the past two school years. In my opinion the teachers are not qualified to teach all of the subjects that they are teaching.
