South Orlando Christian Academy Reviews
The Past is the Past and Now Is What It Is
I am a person that I reviewed everything before making any decision. SOCA maybe was good school but not longer is. The Administration fired people just because they ask for a salary increase or teachers do not oversee behavior challenges and give everyone a good grade even though the student is not performing well. The Administration does not have any appreciation for teachers efforts. They want to think they way they do. No materials for teachers, no curriculum. Teachers need to over work without any gratification. Let see both sides of the coin before praising.
I am surprised by some of the negative reviews. My children went to SOCA several years ago when we first to moved to Florida from Ohio. We thought the staff and curriculum were amazing. My daughter was 3 when she started at SOCA and they taught her to write and read at that early age. My son was 9 and he learned so much as well. They take the time needed individually with each child and they move them ahead based on performance. Both of my kids are really fast learners and are generally bored in mainstream classrooms because teachers have such rigid lesson plans to follow and have to maintain a slower pace to accomodate large classes. I put them in regular school by middle school in order to participate fully in sports and clubs. But I could not have asked for a better foundation than the one provided by SOCA. My daughter graduate early and is now in her second year of college and my son is in his last year of college. They both aspire to work in education because of the influence of their teachers at SOCA.
This is a horrible school, let me start by saying that. Administration's concern is solely money, never the welfare or best insterest of the children or their future. As a "Christian" school, I expected a lot more than what is offered. This school gets state fundings for special needs children, however, this environment is one of the worst place for them. They are not cared for at a high standard, the Principal does not even abide by their IEPs, whether or not it is required but as a self proclaimed "Christian" I would expect her to stand at higher moral standard. Teachers have absolutely no right & from the outside looking in they get no respect. I've heard children disrespecting teachers without any consequences, the last time I've checked school is not only for academics but the children should learn life lessons & become prepared to be productive in society. It is very disturbing to see the amount of young girls there that have been pregnant, I would blame this on their interaction with the staff's infants, it appears to be an "open" nursery in a school that advertises to be K-12.
This is not a good school, my relative is in their and we just find out that his teacher was fired, reason unknown. What kind of people fired a good teacher. I asked to my relative, if was something wrong with her teaching method. And any answer was found. I know that school have a lot of negative reviews but I never expected to fired a good teacher because they feel like to do so. Way of Go SOCA.
