I have two children that attend. Best teaching staff and admin! The children learn so much and retain it. This school is building the leaders of tomorrow.
George Washington Academy has just received the Utah Charter School of the Year Award 2013!!!
My kids have gone to GWA since Kindergarten and it has prepared them for a solid academic life. We don't mind homework - that's why we chose GWA, so they could be challenged. The character education program is great too. School gives a well-rounded education. We love it!
I can't imagine the experience of the negative post from 6/23. It seems they were at a different school. My child just completed her 5th year at GWA and I can't say enough good about it. Her academic level is far above her public school friends - in EVERY subject. And the positive self-esteem and character building focus is amazing. As for bullying...again, I know for a fact that they have and enforce a zero tolerance policy regarding bullying. We wouldn't have our children anywhere else.
So dissapointing!!! I thought it would be better than public school. But, 25 to a class, no professional aide. They are just like public school. Bullies, etc. Just because the math curriculum is a year advanced doesn't mean they teach it well. HOMEWORK, HOMEWORK hours every night. No foreign language. After this experience I put my children into a local private school with16 students to a class with a professional aide, foreign language, afterschool clubs, no bullies. Well worth the money with test scores to prove it.
This school is far better than the school I have waisted $30,000 in private school tuition. This school is so much better. It has all the attention of a private school, parent involvement, and values. The academics and character building is superior. I absolutely love this school.
My child was getting C's, and D's in the public school system. Now my child is getting A's and B's and tells me how much they like their new school. What a boost in my childs confidence. Thanks GWA.
We have been with this school since it opened and we absolutely love it.
Great for students who are academically advanced and need the challenge. They learn so much in the way of math , science, and socail studies. It is a Core Knowledge School.
