Challenger School - Strawberry Park Reviews
My daughter has been going to Challenger School since she was in pre-school. I am really happy with the academic syllabus that the school follows. They have a very systematic approach and I feel the kids are learning a lot. If they introduced a second language that would definitely be a good addition.
I'm about to graduate from this school. I've been here for 11 years and I don't regret being here one bit. The teachers try their best to put you best foot forward. Challenger has beecome my second home. It's been a roller coaster ride of fun. I have a special shout out for my AWESOME middle school teachers: Mrs. Stevens!!!!!! You're the best!!! Ms. Boyer!!!! Invite me to you wedding!!!! Mrs. Pazirandeh!!! You made geometry fun!!! Mrs. Mackewicz!!! How's baby Logan?!
Though the curriculum is somewhat vigorous, I think it very well prepares you for the future. We're doing college level vocabulary, economics about the history of fiat money, inflation, and the business cycle, literature in which we read books that should be in high school, and pascal computer programming.
I will never forget this school. Those who criticize the school shouldn't be talking. If you spend time to get to know the teachers and administrative staff, Challenger Strawberry Park will become more than just a school. Personally, I am in Student Council. Mrs. Blackwell, the headmaster, is the greatest! The teachers at this school truly listen. I know that you might think that because this is written from the point of view of a long time student it will be biased. But I'm telling you, this school is memorable. There's no bullying so friends are made easily. I've gone through the days where I didn't like putting on a uniform, but it tells the world where you go to school. It also disciplines you. The teachers can seem busy all the time but at the meantime they are doing things to benefit their students. Don't forget the teachers have lives too. I know that my teachers care about the students and that they love teaching. Challenger School Strawberry Park is the place where I began my schooling and soon will transition to high school. Thanks alot!!!
Challenger is a nice school, though sometimes teachers can be strict, they have good education.
Absolute bloodsuckers! The school is highly deprived of a sensible "Kids program". Too much of stress on both kids and parents. They try to clutter the class to make maximum money..end result..children dont get as much attention from the teacher. My son's first grade teacher never had the time nor the patience.. she would leave bizarre messages on my telephone and when I try to talk to her, she only had the time to talk about her son who is also a student in the same school.
BOTTOMLINE: if you want to reduce 10 years of your life span and the child's life span then Challenger is the way to go"
stress stress and stress!!!!!
