  • My son is in a charter school and we absolutely love it. We have renewed our lease at this apartment 3 times now and will once more so we can stay near this school. Even tho we want to move. If you have one near you, I highly recommend the Imagine Charter schools especially ones with Micro Society.  If you would like to know more about either the Imagine Schools or Micro Society or why I love them so much feel free to message me. Other wise I will end up spamming this thread with lots of positive things about it lol .

  • DD is in 7th, grade all adanced classes, (A's and B's) DS is in 1st grade (O's and S+'s). I'm very thrilled w/ how well they are doing. My only problem is that I feel that education is VERY important, but I also feel that kids are pushed too hard to grow up too fast, and aren't allowed to be kids anymore. It's sad.

  • I have a little one in kindergarten. We just moved across the country, where she was at was great and this area seems to be equally good. She is reading and writing in sentences. I think the schools and teachers are great. i think what they are learning is appropriate not pushing them too hard but at the same time expecting enough.

  • Yep I love my dds school. She is in K but my other 2 went through the same elementary and I love the school. The middle and high school are the problem here.

  • YES! Our oldest is in an academically challenging charter school. Public school was too easy for him and he was goofing off all the time. Now he has to work and is doing much better. This school teaches kids at their level. So if a student excels in a certain subject, they can move to a higher level class, if they need more help in another subject they can move down to a lower class. My 6th grader is in Pre-Algebra and advanced Latin and Spanish. He wouldn't be getting any of those classes in public school, until at least 9th grade.

  • When my girls were little they went to a uppity suburban school that had awards in education....Can't understand why really, they weren't learning as much as when we moved to this area and they go to a very small school. As soon as they started here their grades went way up and they excelled at learning and now my 6 yr old son...well I could not get him to do anything but he started school this year and he is learning by leaps and bounds. I think this small town school has some true gems for teachers!

  • Is your child doing well in school? With an IEP he is doing as well as expected in some areas and excellently in others.
    Do you think that they should be learning more in school? Yes. The first half of the year was very repetitive of last year.
    Are you happy with the class curriculum? I would like to see our curriculum be a little more challenging but the only way for that to work would be if we went to year round school. After 2 months of no school they need that first few months of review.
