This is our second year at Flint and my son lives going to school. The individualized lesson plans are exactly what he needed. He's encouraged and motivated by all of his teachers. He's happy and eager to learn which is all we ever wanted in searching for a new school. So happy we found this amazing school.
Our children have been at The Flint Academy for four years and it has been an overall wonderful experience. Our eldest was recently talking about how some of her friends at other schools seem to just want to get the assignment turned in with a good grade. While she wants that too, she has really developed a love of learning along the way in addition to the desire for good grades. This is exactly what we had hoped and prayed for when making our school decision!
We are starting our 5th year at Flint Academy. My children would not want to go anywhere else. The staff truly care and value the children that attend the school. Class sizes are small and intimate. The teachers really know what is going on with the student and their families. Teachers are able to individualize the students learning plan while working with all the students in the class. My children are having fun and motivated to learn. Our family feels very blessed to belong to such a great academy.
There is no other school in the DFW area like Flint Academy. It is an all-inclusion, classical, Christian academy. What this means for our family is that our two children with dyslexia get the extra help for dyslexia remediation without feeling different or losing self esteem. While my older son is challenged with a college prep curriculum in a smaller environment that meets his need for less chaos and smaller class size. All of this is accomplished in an environment where my children are valued as individuals created by God in a world created by God. It is a loving and family environment where my children have developed a love of learning.
Flint Academy has given our home new life. We have one traditional student and two with learning differences enrolled, all of whom have blossomed and found new love for education through this school. With small class sizes, personalized attention, individual learning plans, Christian values and interactive teaching styles, Flint Academy has grown to be more than a school for my children. It is their second family.
The teachers at Flint Academy love their students and treat them like valued treasures who will someday change the world. They believe in the students more than the kids believe in themselves and demonstrate that daily in the way they prepare and deliver material at each child's level. My children have learned more from these dedicated individuals than in several years combined at public school.
When my children were in public school, they were given 2-3 hours of homework each night, often including new concepts and subject that was so briefly covered, they couldn't remember how to complete it. At Flint, there is minimal homework, yet what there is involves clear instructions, defined timelines, creative methods and teachers make themselves available to help clarify any questions or needs.
Flint Academy is based on Christian principles which develop ideal student character. They teach how honesty and integrity impact a child's entire life and how being a good person is not based on intelligence or popularity. Being a full-inclusion school, they also teach tolerance, diversity and fairness daily.
