This school exceptional. My daughter has learned so much at the Pre-K level. She has learned to add, read, and all in one year. She has superceded her expectations and has amazed us by far. The teachers are firm but caring. The education is top notch and would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in their children's education.
Parents Beware Rise is one stop from bootcamp. they offer an awesome learning curriclum but put way too much stress on students. They are unrealistic when it comes to a child and this can cause great damage to a child self esteem. The Rise in Newark particularly is the worst. they have some idea of 'these poor kids' when most our children were intelligent before attending this school and just need to be in a school that supports the mind capacity. After seeing that 19 yr old kid commit suicide online i think as parents we need to reconsider some of our expectations and the pressures our children face. be sure to talk to your kids dont assume this is a good or bad school because of what you read. thats how i found out
I absolutely adore Rise Academy. The fact that we don't have a cafeteria couldn't compare to the education and the fact that my child is aiming for great success. He will go far and beyond what we as parents did and it's because he believes that mediocrity isn't an option. That's awesome!
Rise Academy is a great school. Its teachers'dedication to their students along with the heavy emphasis on academic excellence makes it a success. I expecially like the accountablity and zero tolerance for parental negligence.
My son is in Kindergarten at Rise Academy. I am so impressed with what he has learned in Pre-K and Kindergarten. He is more advanced in Math and Reading skills than his friends and cousins that attend some of the 'best schools' in Lubbock. The teachers we have been blessed with at Rise have made huge impacts on my son, most importantly, teaching him that he is responsible for the decisions he makes and the consequences of those decisions. I believe that Rise Academy is the best school anywhere in this area. This is due, in part, to the wonderful children there. But most of all, the teachers and support staff feel a responsibility to the children and parents. I am thankful for Rise Academy and the teaching that goes on there everyday! You have a choice in your child's education, choose Rise Academy!
My kids have been attending Rise Academy since they were old enough to go to school. I think that Rise Academy is the best school as far as academics are concerned. Some parents don't agree with me because their are some drawbacks to the school. For example we do have to pack lunch averyday, but I consider this to e a very small drawback when it comes down to my child's education
