I have had my child in Challenger for 5 years. Up until this past year I have been very pleased with the school and the curriculum. However I do believe that the integrity of the school begins with the Principal and the Teachers and that is where I have been disappointed. I believe in and approve of structure and discipline but not to the extent of overwhelming the kids with homework to the point where they do not have the time to be kids. I have watched my son regress to the point of total anxiety because he wants to do well and please his parents as well as his teachers. I have witnessed more focus on implementing the rules, ie; wearing belts and the right color of blue socks, instead of focusing on the well-being of the student and his capabilities to improve and succeed. I am discouraged and disappointed, but still want the best education for my child and I always thought that Challenger was the answer, until now. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
