Challenger K-8 School of Science and Math Reviews

Challenger is truly a one-of-a-kind school! The teachers and faculty are amazing and the test scores prove it. Being ranked 2nd in the state in 2011 definitely comes as no surprise! The standards are set high but there is plenty of help and support for students who may need it. It's great to see how many parents are involved with their children not only academically but also with school functions and volunteering as well. We are very blessed to have our daughter enrolled in such a wonderful school!

This school is wonderful. My daughter started in Kindergarten and is now in 5th grade. She loves this school and refuses to go anywhere else. There is more work requirements and more homework but it will prepare her for the future. It's nice to know she is in good hands. The staff is great and exceptionally smart and intelligent. Keep up the good work.

This school delivers top notch education. The teachers are above average. We were very fortunate to get accepted through the portfolio. This school expects more but so does getting ahead in life. Science fair participation is a requirement. We make it fun. It can be a great bonding experience. Plus the middle school is above avage too. Offering classes no other school does. And the field trips are always exceptional.
