About This School
Magnet schools are public schools that offer a specialized curriculum or educational philosophy, often with a specific focus or theme. Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs. See Paideia Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2007, Paideia Academy had 25 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Missouri average is 14 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Paideia Academy Reviews
I have read many comments about Paideia Academy and how horrible it is. I would like ask those persons what did they do to help improve the quality of their child(ren)'s educational experience? How many hours did they spent with their child(ren) outside the classroom with reading and teaching good morals and values. Parent must understand that they are their children's first teacher. They must establish the importance of education in their homes. Parents must set the standards. They should accept responsibility for their child(ren)'s academic performance and not just send them to school and expect someone else to do it without offering any support.
I commend the Paideia faculty and staff for their efforts. If the people who complain about the school were truly interested in the students success, they would have offered help instead of criticizing an institution that worked with the students they were given and they did not give up on them.
I have written letters to the 2009-2010 sponsor and the administration about the school's inability to meet the academic needs of many of its students and the lack of supervision to maintain a safe environment for all of the students on the school grounds and the bus. Teachers have demonstrated a lack of concern about the impact their words have on students when they belittle them in front of other teachers and students. I feel that the schools need to be closed so they will not continue to do what may be irreparable harm to children.
I understand they have a new sponsor. I would like to know what college will be their 2010-11 sponsor.
Do not send your children to this school. The school is a joke, they do not teach your children what they need to know. I transferred my children out of this school and into a county school, and my children were 2 grades behind what they were supposed to be. This school should be shut down for good. They do not watch the kids at all. Please visit the school before enrolling your children there.
