School Reviews

I`m actually the grandparent of a 2nd grader Aldar Academy. Before my grandchild began attending Aldar, school was a major source of stress. My grandchild attended 4 different schools, both public and private, for kindergarten alone. It was the same old routine at each of those schools; calls from the principal, asking us to come pick the child up after there`d been some sort of incident, then suspensions, and eventually being sent to yet another school. My grandchild was frustrated and stressed, and so were we.That`s all behind us now. Aldar has been a true blessing for our family, especially for my grandchild, who now likes going to school, and is thriving, both academically and socially, in the learning environment Aldar Academy offers.
