I feel so welcomed every time I visit The Sloan School. I am not a parent, but an aunt of a student there, and I love seeing how happy my niece is when I come to pick her up. The teachers and office staff are always super nice and helpful, and my niece loves to talk about what she is learning! I am thankful for The Sloan School =-)

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
I know they take it very seriously - they want the kids to feel safe and the parents to feel good about leaving their kids there.


Supports LD students: Agree


- a
The school does a good job working with parents to meet students needs.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Biblical principles are instilled from the very beginning - not just in the curriculum, but also with the love the teachers show and the way they teach students to treat each other.



- a
Both of my children attended The Sloan School from 2yrs old through the 5th grade. We had a great experience. They received a great education and enjoyed everything about the place (teachers, staff, program). Everyone knew their names and it truly was a home away from home for them and us.

I could not disagree with the previous review more! This school has the most tenured staff I could find when I visited schools in the area. I was on a waiting list to get in which tells me their enrollment is at capacity. I asked the Sloans about their other school and learned it is co-owned by them and another couple and each owner is at that school one day a week. I see Darin or Christy most everyday-I don't know of another school whose owners are more hands-on.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
All you have to do is ask each teacher as you take a tour how many years they have been there to learn how happy they are. Happy teachers=happy school. In this environment of love and happiness, the sky's the limit on what the children are capable of academically, socially, physically and spiritually. Some of the afternoon teachers attended the school when they were little. Lots of love here!

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Homework is directed from the curriculum, not the teachers or administration. Respect for family time is a high priority of the owners of this school.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school has a strong mission statement and purpose. They seek to develop excellence in the whole child. The foundation of love and high character creates an environment where children can learn to their fullest potential.



- a
This school is not what it used to be. Enrollment is down considerably, teachers change every year and the front office is very difficult to deal with. They are really not preparing your child for the world. It's not wonder not many families in Irving are sending their kids to this school anymore. The Sloans bought another school and are more concerned with the profits of the schools now than the real one on one personalization they used to have.
