Wings Of A Dove Christian Academy Reviews
I was referred to this school for my son for kindergarten by my previous baby sitter, and I will say it is a good placement for him. He is making strides academically and spiritually. He loves going to school. The teachers are excellent and are genuinely interested in the welfare of each and every student. The curriculum I would say is advanced for kindergarten, but I like the challenges it provides the kids.
When we did our first visit to the school he wanted to stay and told me he thinks he will be very happy here and it has been 3 months now and he is still of the same opinion.
Very good school! Thanks and appreciation to the teachers and the rest of the staff there at Wings of a Dove Christian Academy!
Sooo Thankful for Wings of A Dove
I read the review of the March 22nd person and am quite shocked. My son attended WOAD from the age of 7 months through first grade. He not only excelled in academics but he is a tremendous person. The thought of someone calling the director and teachers babysitters angers me. The director and teachers are excellent. They not only academically educate your child. They also spiritually educate your child. If this is not what you are looking for then by all means don't enroll.
I am what the state considers a "highly qualified certified teacher" in the public school system and my child attended Wings of A Dove. The only reason I removed him is because I have a new baby. In the fall she too will attend Wings of A Dove Christian Academy.
When you enroll at Wings you are told that they use the ABEKA curriculum. ABEKA is a good curriculum and it is taught. Public schools are taught differently. If what your child is being taught is not up to your standards or is not challenging enough for your child, YOU should take action. Which means invest YOUR time in YOUR child. No school can do it alone. YOU the parent have to put in the extra time with YOUR child. whew...Sorry, I went a little to the left there.
I said all of that to say. Your child will be an engaged and loved learner at Wings of A Dove. I can honestly say these teachers love and care for these kids. Mrs. Sharon is a wonderful leader/Director and I am sooo thankful for them.
I am very pleased with my child's progress.
This is the school my child attended to 3rd Grade. The only reason she did not continue was that they did not have a 4th Grade. Even as she went on to another school, she continued to excell, and is consistently on honor role. Her current teachers always comment on my child's excellent behavior, and academic achievements. I strongly believe that Wings of A Dove presented her with a firm foundation to build on. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to see their child strive academically and socially. However, all the parenting cannot be left to the school, parents have to play their part. Don't allow your child to be spoiled and unruly at home, then expect schools to perform miracles.
Thanking God for guiding me to this school
I can’t believe the review I read dated March 2014. The first thing that popped in my mind was this has to be someone who is bitter about something and this was their way of getting even. My son has been in this school since he was just 1 ½ years old. He is now 9 years of age. I become sad when I think about his time at this school coming to an end. Anyone who knows me and even strangers I have met would tell you how much I love Wings of a Dove Christian Academy. I pray one day that Wings will be allowed to go all the way up to 12th grade.
My child attended one other center prior to Wings of a Dove. Needless to say, his stay at the other center was very short. Unlike the other center (which has several locations) Wings of a Dove does not have a high turnover rate. As a parent, I found this to say a lot about the school. It says that staff are happy being there. It says the children will not have to be introduced to a new teacher every other month. It says the director carefully picks who she hires to look over the children in this school. This is not the case at many schools both public and private. We see this way too often on the news.
The owner is very much involved in everything. She does not just sit at home or at her desk and hold a title of being an owner. have yet to see a director more involved and so hands on with the children of a school as Ms. Sharon. She treats and loves these children as her own. The vision that God has given her, Ms. Sharon has been totally devoted to.
My favorite thing to share with people when I talk about Wings is this has never been a school about money. They are not in this to make money. Yes money is needed to keep the business up and going well but that has not been the objective for the owner and staff of the school. If this was the case, a lot of children would have been dismissed a long time ago and the school would have closed a long time ago. I know firsthand that the school will do all they can to help a parent/child who come into financial hardship and unable to pay as originally agreed. They are more concerned about the children and what they need.
They are taught both academically and biblically on a level beyond what is expected. My child knew all the books of the bible before he finished Pre-K. When compared to children in the same grade level at other schools, my child and other children of WOAD were being taught on a more advanced level. The teachers aim to help your child exceed what is expected. They are challenged so they too can see what is possible. My child will be going into 4th grade this upcoming school year of 2014-2015. When he finishes 4th grade at Wings of A Dove, I know I can say he spent the first 10 years of his life in a school environment that taught him well, kept him safe, loved him, taught him, and made sure that his time in this school and money spent was not in vain.
Please do not be fooled by reviews of parents or people looking to block the blessings of this school. I can honestly tell you that you will find a lot more families who love this school than those who don’t.
Would never put my kids back in this school... Run away... Not worth the money... More like babysitters instead of teachers in my opinion... If I could go back I would have saved my money put my kids in public and invested a much smaller amount in a tutor to advance my kids.
My son has been at this school for 2 years and he has made great strides in social and academic growth. The Director and the teachers are very kind and nurturing to my son. He loves going to school. I am very satisfied with the curriculum and how it is taught. I have seen tremendous results.
