Amelia Academy Reviews
In response to another person's comments, accreditation for all private schools is done through a panel of educators and approved by the State Education Department. The class structure at Amelia Academy is highly organized and customized to meet the needs of each student--that is one advantage of a small school. To succeed at Amelia Academy, students must adhere to strict policies of conduct and character.
This school was such a disappointment to me, my husband and my children! We thought that our children would get more here than at the public school, simply because of the small class sizes. This could not have been further from the truth. The class structure was not organized. When we made the decision to remove our children from the school, they were behind the public schools as far as testing, etc. The teachers at the public schools were so much more professional and equipped for teaching. They helped my children catch up and succeed. Sorry we fell for the private school trap....it was not a good experience at all! When I did some investigation, the accreditation board for the private school was three people who are paid to give the school this "accreditation".
