School Reviews

We have attended Thales Academy for 2 years. We have a 4th and 6th grader. The school has met and exceeded our expectations on multiple levels. Academically our children have both excelled. At times they are challenged and have needed help, but they always receive help right away if they are falling behind. It''s a great sized school with under 500 students. There is a lot of personal attention given. The communication with the teachers and administrators is so fluid and prompt. The drama, chorus, and band programs are excellent. We''ve been very happy at this school and highly recommend it.
