School Notes

  • Our curriculum focuses on the foundations of knowledge: language arts, math, and logic. Early mastery of these basics prepares students for advanced studies and learning at an accelerated pace.
  • Breathtaking Results - Our uniquely structured classes yield astonishing results in young students. Challenger students achieve scores well above the 90th percentile on the IOWA Assessments. This means that our average student outperforms more than nine out of ten students who take that test. Challenger School offers preschool (starting as early as 2 years, 9 months) through eighth grade programs. Our students learn to think for themselves, and to value independence.  The results are unmatched at any price!

Teachers genuinely care and are very involved.

I've only attended Challenger for four years of my academic life, but cannot express how much I wish I had gone longer. Though expensive, the education and experiences I've gained have been worth it. The private homely environment feels safe and the teachers make learning to excite and fun.

Not only will your children learn curriculum advanced above other schools (my 6th grader is learning on-level eighth grade material), they also will gain the challenger values such as self-reliance, integrity, and hard work. They create a competitive environment preparing them for high school and their future in general.Teachers are very involved individually and really care for their success. 5/5 recommended.

As a middle school student, I've been through much of Challenger's competitive environment. It's hard to keep up with their advanced curriculum and workload, but it's instilled values in me in which no other school could. The small private environment allows for a lot of individuality with the teachers in all grades and encourages learning without much distraction. The student population in general is very friendly and welcoming, so the school is easy to adjust to.

Recommend their preschool program especially. The high tuition rates may seem daunting, but I assure you, as a parent of 4, the education and experience your child get is worth it.

I have gone to challenger all of my life; it has become a part of me. The education is amazing, learning at a high school level starting at 7th grade. The teachers are very involved, and the students around me are friendly and open to many new students!
