I personally like this school (Grand Prairie campus) my son attended 6th grade last year there. He made commended performance on his math and did well in his other subjects. Because it is such a small school I feel that he gets the attention that he needs. However I feel that discipline is too lenient. Which in a couple of years maybe cause the school to have a down fall.
I have a son going into the 5th grade. The teachers at Waxahachie Advantage Academy have been a wonderful role model for him. He is ADHD. The teachers and staff have worked with him and are very understanding. This last year he was commended by the state on his TAKs reading test. I believe that the school is on the right track towards building champions!
I cannot praise this school enough! My child is being challenged academically and her social skills have improved greatly. This is her second year. Last year there were some issues and the staff went out of their way to get it resolved in a fair manor. We are just sad that Ms. Smith is gone this year. :(
My daughter is in Kinder and has been at Eagle since Pre-K. I wanted to thank Mrs. Lozano for the awesome job she does. She goes that extra mile, she cares for each student's education. She is now learning how to write her name in cursive. She can also read! She's also learning sigh language! Thankyou Mrs. Lozano! Oh must I add the staff is all very polite.
My children went to Eagle Advantage for two years and they learned so much and love going to school every day. The whole staff there is very caring and loving toward each child. I moved and took my children out thinking for convince everything would be fine, but I didn t feel that they were not learning that much and fell behind at there new school, so now I am going to be driving that extra time to have them go to Eagle Advantage because of the entire outstanding job that every one there does and I will continue to take my children there no matter what drive.
that's a great school and i believe that they are building champion's
I have been very dissappointed with my childrens education at Cornerstone Eagle Adv. this year. There is a lack of communication between parents and teachers, and the teachers to administers. I find the whole school full of confusion and disorder.
Lets just say that I was not Pleased with this school that I put my 2 children in another school and my 6th grader is now so far behind that she is already struggling. She didn't have a permanent teacher last year for Math. And she did not get the tutoring that was promised to me. She even felt that the teachers did not care. I also had a child in Pre -K and he learned a lot last year. But he did not go to this campus. He went to the campus on Shelly Street. I don't think there is enough teachers or qualified teachers for this school.
Eagle Advantage do not show a great deal of concern for the students (jr high & high school) academic learning. The school needs to focus on a teaching/learning level instead of high ratio of enrolled students so that more federal funds are granted. The teachers need to take mandatory workshops throughout the year, so that they will be able to teach the courses that are essential and balance or better than surrounding school districts. They do not have PTA or anything of sort so that the parents can be more involved & active @ the school. The school needs to offer accelerated learning opportunities to the high school grades, that have yet to become available.
The academics were great, however there was no discipline guidelines in place. Also, they were somewhat unorganized. But on a academic level they were great....
My sons glasses were broke and nobody cared. Theres nobody helping the students or anybody. Its a big mess. Classes are too small and they have to many kids. The teachers cant handle the kids. I called the principal and he told me it would be okay. Be careful.
Eagle Advantage is on a higher academic scale than the public school system. The areas where the school is lacking would be in sports. As with most Charter and Private schools, the school is challenged in that area. Be prepared for a lot of parent involvement. If asked whether I would send my child back, Yes I would.
This year the school is crazy. They have children as young as 6 through 9 changing classes every hour. These kids think they are in a circus. This program will not work.
I like this school alot better then the other bigger school my son attended because they are smaller and offer a more one on one atmospear.
I am very disappointed. My children have been at this school for 5 years however; it seems that the last two years with giving more enphasis on this year the school has definately lacked in several policies/procedures such as; discipline, uniforms and tolerance. There are a lot of discipline problems and feel that the fact that students are not being screened as passed years. When there is a concern and it is brought to the authorities attention it is swept under the rug. Now it seems that Eagle Advantage officials have a mentality of 'more kids, more money', not caring of the academically, appearance and reputation of the school.
I wanted my daughter to get into a magnet Highschool. She was sick the day of the benchmark test. A representative in the office told me she could take the test. She went back they didn't give her the test. They told me it would not affect her report card,then told me it was not a major part of her grade,then told me it was 25%.This will ultimately affect my daughters future. I feel very bad about the unattention and disconcern given to my daughter's situation. Not to mention the many times my calls and messages were never returned.
I was disappointed with Eagle Advantage Charter School. My daughter became lazy with school work and her study habits dropped dramatically.
My overall experience is fair, with the understanding that the school is still in it's growing stages, I am hopeful that they will increase the efforts of parental involvement and the tolerance towards students with learning challenges. I have also experienced some teacher's growing intolerance to more provide one-on-one attention those with learning challenges because they are dealing with an overwhelming amount of children who exhibit disciplinary problems on a consistent basis.
I would love to see the school improve in the area of discipline. There seems to be a low tolerance for challenging students. I was given no other option by Administration to withdraw my child. As a result I had to pull my other two children who were doing academically well. Overall the school is great, but lacks a fair discipline structure.
I am very pleased with the performance Eagle Advantage Schools is having on my children. They have an excellent Accelerating Reading program to help your child develop their reading abilities! My son have learned so much concerning technology in the Computer Technician Mentoring Program.
