My children were never challenged before they came to Classical School When they started attending Classical, they suddenly lit up with excitement about what they were learning. They received an excellent education at Classical School. The standardized test scores are sky high, showing that the other students at the school are also excelling.
My daughter loves this school. It is challenging and the teachers really care about the success of the students.
I love the curriculum at this school - it is challenging, enjoyable, and definitely fun to teach. E.D. Hirsch's concept of building an educated child step-by-step through Core Knowledge Schools is ingenious; the goal is to create children that are culturally literate (i.e., can understand newspapers, have background information to interpret things on TV, and best of all, can make educated decisions for themselves in the future based on the knowledge they acquire now.) The math used at the school is comprehensive and sequential. The students do very well with it. Learning Spanish, starting to read in Kindergarten, and diagramming sentences in grammar are all big draws. History topics have a world history and American history strand running simultaneously and cover fun topics like the Middle Ages, understanding religions and cultures, and Greek/Roman Mythology. I'd recommend this school or any Core Knowledge school to anyone.
My daughter loves this school, and I love this school. The teachers keep my daughter challenged and the curriculum is great. We feel so lucky to be involved with Classical Charter School.
This is a great school with both wonderful students and faculty. My daughter loves going to school. The academics are high (she is studying things I had in high school and college). The average student is brought higher and the talented student soars. The 8th graders even go to Costa Rica for a week after graduation.
Classical school has been a wonderful experience for my son. A ton of parental involvement is expected, and there is a lot of homework, however, as a parent, you could not ask for a better environment in which to learn and grow. Spanish in Kindergarten, poetry, reading, math and science, all presented in a manner in which the students can grasp and excel. Mastery of each subject is expected. High expectations by both parents and teachers-a concept gone by the wayside in the modern public schools. I am pleased and excited that my child has the opportunity to attend this wonderful school.
Challenges students to work to their abilities. Students are moved up or down in each specific subject area according to their abilities. Average or accelerated students appears to be best fit. A number of parents appear to complain about amount of homework for less than average student as work is required to be completed either in class, study hall or at home. Another downside is skipping grade levels in subject manner. Had to tutor to make up for the missed concepts and understanding when students is moved forward in math. Class size is 26-27 students and have a long waiting list so apply early. It is worth the drive.
