Sandy >Challenger School
Watch out for the Pre-K! Ms Aubrey is horrible and the Directors at the Sandy campus are useless. Ms Aubrey, in particular, specializes in preaching instead of teaching and has absolutely no patience. She’ll go over the concept one time and if the kids don’t understand (which is every time) she will write a note on their paper saying the child wasn’t listening. So the parent ends up teaching the kids at home. Now, I can understand every now and then, but this was happening every day! What was I paying $1,000.00 a month for? Ms Aubrey made my daughter so miserable that she was single-handedly turning her first learning experiences into a nightmare. I had to wait a full year to write this review, because the Teachers and Directors retaliate against the kids if you bring up any problems. I don’t understand how anyone could treat these cute little kids the way Ms Aubrey does and the Directors are so defensive they can't see what is, so clearly, a big problem. Definitely a boot camp. :(
I was so excited when my son got into this school but I realized that it is not really a school - it is a slave house. They do not want a 3 year old to be a 3 year old - they even suggested that my son has ADHD because he was active (like a normal 3 year old, my pediatrician confirmed he did not have ADHD). They pull the paper out of the kids hands if they paint green instead of the teacher suggested blue. They said my son does not get intimidated by the 6'2" headmaster and hence they have run out of behavior management techniques. One of their problems for my son was that he was chatty and it takes him sometime to actually get to the chores and that if he is let to be himself, he will turn out to be a rebel unfit for the society. Again, my pediatrician confirmed that my son is a normal 3 year old..
They made false accusations that my son hit, "tackeled" (thats how the teacher spelled it - not a typo it was handwritten), bit kids, just in a matter of three days to force us to pull him out of the school. When i asked them if I can see the bite mark, they said he was "almost" going to bite the other kids. I felt like my kid was blackmarked and ostracized.When I was pulling my son out, I asked them for a report on him. They gave me one and it was a joke - they said he does not know numbers but can count and add.
Well if your kid in inquisitive and chatty, this is not the place for your kid. If you kid likes to be a mindless sheep and gets intimidated by tall men, ofcourse then it is THE PLACE!
