Mis hijos estudiaron en Kujawa ( 2013) y mi experiencia ha sido muy buena. A pesar de que mi idioma principal no es ingl s en la oficina siempre me trataron con mucho respeto y cordialidad. La se ora Rodr guez es una excelente profesional e intenta ayudar tanto a los padres como a los estudiantes. La se ora Thomas (Principal) y su asistente, la se ora Pace, forman un gran equipo d trabajo. La escuela siempre se ve organizada y mantienen buen control del comportamiento d los ni os. Mis ni os nunca se quejaron d abuso ni de discrimen. Sus maestras siempre estuvieron disponibles para recibirme y mantuvieron comunicaci n conmigo sobre el progreso de ellos (Mrs. Johnson y Ms. Terry, ambas excelentes maestras). Mi nica observaci n es q deber an enviar informar al padre con anticipaci n los temas que se discutir n semanalmente y las fechas en que se ofreceran los ex menes de todas las materias para as los padres darle seguimiento en el hogar y garantizar un mejor aprovechamiento acad mico. Las actividades y las excursiones enriquecieron la experiencia educativa. Permitir a los ni os cooperar y participar en plantar y cuidar de su jard n ha sido grandioso para ellos.

The teachers at Kujawa Pre-K are exceptionally wonderful. My daughter absolutely loved coming to school every morning. She had nothing, but wonderful things to say about her teacher and peers. However, the front office staff are very rude and unprofessional. The Receptionist and Secretary attitude towards parents is borderline disrespectful. If this had happen on one occasion I would have chalked it up to them having a rough day, but majority of the time I visit the school they seem to be on edge. Very short tempered/

I took my nephew in, and started him in this school a few months ago. I have been absolutely amazed by this school. They really go above and beyond the call of duty. His 2nd grade teacher communicates very effectively through the Monday folder, and works hard to ensure open communication is maintained with the parents/guardians, even after the school day ends. The office staff made what could have been an extremely trying situation for me as easy as possible. My nephew is learning so much, and is so excited about it. They reward the students well for good behavior, and hold them accountable for bad behavior. My nephew has struggled to keep up with the new curriculum, but they are working hard to get him up to par, offering him after school tutoring, and summer school. Great school, can t wait for my daughter to start next year.

Aldine Academy is a wonderful Magnet School. The Principal Ms Hagood and Ast. Principal Ms Mays along with all the Teacher and Staff are totally committed to bringing out and supply the best education and environment for each child. The school itself is absolutely spectacular. The children have access to so much information. They are allowed to participate in French Fairs, Drums, Houston Rodeo's writtin and art contest. The school is designed, where in some of the classrooms, they have exposure to public speaking, archaeology digs and so much more. The parents are allowed, as well as encourged, to participate in daily classes and activies. The communication is between Partents and Staff is second to none. This school is wonderful and you know from your first visit that the goal is Aldine Academy Students will SOAR through life.
