Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Class and playground well-monitored in regards to this. Challenging situations are dealt with immediately and respectfully.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
Children work at their own pace. There is no competition or comparisons. Talk to the school office manager with specific needs. Might not be available as resources are limited.


Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
Principal is involved and seen regularly. Exceptionally strong parent group as volunteer hours are required. Very rare to find a school where over 80% of the parents are helping and attending meetings. Somehow this school does it!

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
I love that these young kids get to play and make friends, and not have to be burdened with homework. I like this school's approach to homework...no homework (or very little).



- a
This school has worked well for many families but not for others, and that is why there are so many polarized reviews. Kids who have left, have adjusted well in the regular public schools. Some were found to be behind in some areas while others moved on to achieve a 4.0 GPA and been placed in National Honor Society. Just like any other school, there is a range. Academics are not the only focus at this school. Social and emotional development is also strongly emphasized. Just because it is a "choice" or "lottery" program, does not necessarily mean it is a good fit for your family. Do your research. Know your kid and his/her needs, and find what is best for your family. This school has been great for my kids and my family. It has been a positive experience for us.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Best mannered and respectful kids you will ever find. The school emphasizes this.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
There are only 3 teachers at this school.

I love this school. It is not perfect but what school is. Academics may seem to not be top priority because the school also focuses on a child's social and emotional well-being. It is a small school.of 70 kids in grades 1-5. The 3 classes are split classes. Lots of volunteer work is required but that is how a "community" is formed. Very rare to be in a school where you know all the kids, all the parents and all the staff. The philosophy is very unique - no grades, no tests, no report cards, very little homework (if any). And because of this, this school may not be for everyone.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Definitely. Right now the kids are learning The Mindset model.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
No homework. Only 30 minutes of reading per day. And the occasional special project.
