School Reviews

My son started this school at 2.5 years old when they first opened for camp before the 2012/2013 school year. He had a total of 8 words. He now has a wonderful insightful and enjoyable vocabulary as he completes his 1st school year in the PreK-2 to PreK-4 program. We are excited to see how enthusiastic our son is and his love of learning I know every child in my son''s class. I love that he has the same teacher for three years. I love that there is nature and that it is organic. I love how sweet the big kids are with the little kids. I am not religious and from my experience, at least 60% of the students are not Orthodox Christian... they learn virtues by example. The teachers are wonderful and the office staff are always right there and accessible. One of the questions I asked was what they teach - such as creation or creativity (I am a science nerd myself) and their response to me was that "we teach everything because in today''s world, you need to know everything." I love that! This will be my son''s school until he graduates and goes to college.

I love that everyone knows my child''s name and that they can balance an academically challenging curriculum with plenty of outdoor activities. And all in a loving, nontoxic, and peaceful enviroment

We feel so blessed to have all of our children at Paideia Classical Academy! If it wasn''t for this school, we''d be homeschooling our 6 little ones! This is the only Christ-centered, Organic, Green and Classical School in South Florida! Our children are nurtured in mind, body and soul! The 10 acre campus is beautiful and serene. My kids love this school! I love not having any junk around to entice them! Instead the children participate in organic gardening and make their own salad from their school garden! The teachers and staff are a true blessing! The children are all amazing!
