I did a lot of research into various schools before putting my child in Champion School for its great support system, focus on confidence building, and setting up the child for success. At first I just though this was just marketing fluff, but it is not; I couldn't be happier with my decision to come to Champion.Champion School has been an AMAZING experience for my child. Since we have come here our daughter has improved her writing skills, her math level has gone up, and her confidence levels are now sky high. This doesn’t mean more stress for the parents, as they support the child throughout with frequent one-on-ones. I was honestly surprised at how frequent these one-on-ones are. I actually thought of using this concept and hiring tutors for one-on-ones - I don’t see how they make money as one-on-one tutoring costs are astronomical! (~$30/hr)They really do make their students learn the material well and effectively - any hands on parent should be able to see this clear as day. One can also take entrance tests to gauge how well the school does - for example my daughter got 98th percentile on the CHSPE (the California High School Proficiency Examination, the exam you take before applying to private high schools).In regards to administration, I understand why people think of it as a negative of the school. They can be a bit slow getting back to me, but once they do they try to help to the best of their abilities. The reason I don’t mind is the principal clearly would rather spend her time getting to know every student, their level, their progress, and their happiness level. I am simply AMAZED by the amount of care the principal does this with. She even knows which particular concepts your child struggles with and assigns one-on-ones to help bolster these concepts. She is also down to earth and is actively apart of your child’s education. The fact that pretty much all the kids seem to like her a lot is a bonus. In my honest opinion, I would rather have a principal more focused on getting my child the help she needs than one who is a customer service bot. If you want your child to enjoy learning and excel at it to, this is the school for you!NOTE: My child is now in the middle of HS. She is still doing amazing in school and is excelling with ease and much studying needed to be done. We both attribute this mostly to the amazing qualities of the school.
We are extremely happy with this school. We had our older daughter in this school until a couple of years ago, when we moved to public school and last year we enrolled our younger one here. This school is very unique in many ways: Kids get a lot of 1on1 help; there is no limit to how high a child can go - every child progresses at her own pace; lots of teachers, few office staff; very patient with the kids, less so with the parents; great with a child's developmental needs, less so with the clerical stuff..We are confident that our child will be safe, happy and learn at a rate that is unparalleled. Our older daughter is a topper at her school. We think it is due to the strong foundation that she built at this school. If we could afford it, we would bring her back to Champion. We recommend this school highly.
Excellent institution committed to students' education. Highly qualified staff, individualized one-on-one attention, and a well-rounded approach make for an outstanding educational experience. The Principal is in my daughter's class every day. Whenever we meet her, she is always able to provide significant insight into my daughter's learning style, progress, and her needs. My daughter loves her.I would highly recommend this school. More importantly, my daughter loves the school.
