    "Paideia has been a terrific choice for our children's education. We have been with the school since its opening in 2005. No school is perfect but the great thing with Paideia is that it strives to be the perfect educational option for families seeking an alternative to the large, cumbersome district schools. Being a charter school has given Paideia the flexibility of trying new and innovative methods of teaching. The early release of teachers, one day a week, allows them to collaborate with each other on how to better help their students so they do not fall behind. Implementing data driven instruction, to find those learning gaps has been a part of the teaching model at Paideia for a few years now. District schools are just now starting to consider it. We have also appreciated the Olweus Bullying Curriculum being taught to our students. Children, while needing to understand reading, writing and math, also need to know how to interact with the world, and the Olweus program, plus other character building curriculum taught at the school, prepares our students for life. We've appreciated the intimate school environment where parents can get involved on many levels."

    "I have to agree with the prior comments. We have had struggles throughout our time. School is too focused on letting teachers get out early on Wednesdays every week and diversity and bullying classes instead of teaching kids spelling, math, organizational skills, assistance with homework incorporating study hall, etc. The school is not interested in sharing the results of all the surveys we complete , so how can the school become better when it ignores the problems that face it."

    "I have had kids at Paideia for 9 years(since it opened). The first couple of years the school was building itself and it's identity. Even though turnover at the Director position has been frequent for the whole nine years, the school was consistently getting better. Until just over 2 years ago. A new dDirector came in and started the decline. Now, just 15 months ago, another new Director came in and was given free hand to turn the school into everything that a parent or student wouldn't want. The culture and identity of the whole school has now been erased and it has been turned into a simple daycare facility focused on studying to pass the MCEA tests. Avoid this school until significant changes are made in the Director position and special education leadership. If you want the same teachers from year to year at the school, this is not the place."

    "Paideia Academy is a great school. Paideia's curriculum is above par. My child was very ready for high school in District 196 after graduating from Paideia, and the younger children still at Paideia are thriving, both academically and emotionally. An awesome school option!"
