The Paladin Program at Chesterbrook Academy in Chantilly got my child back on track.. Not only did he improve 2 grade levels in reading within 1 year but began enjoying learning again as he learned "how to learn". The academics are tailored to each student. Perhaps we lucked out with a highly experienced, wonderful and dedicated teacher.
This school looked like a great place on paper. After getting in and hearing things from my child I regret the year we spent there. We had a first year teacher. That was not a problem, the fact that she was covered in tatoos should have tipped us off though. The academics were unplanned and it seemed as if there was a bias toward familes and children that were there for a long time. The only time the administrators took a real intrest was when it was time to reregister. My child is now in another program
All the admin staff are excellent. Very proactive. Teachers work closely with parents. Small school so everybody knows everyone. We put our daught in mid-year and they all made our transition extremely easy and uneventful.
