This is my first review I have ever done, and it is very honest. My two children are attending Clearwater Academy, and they are very happy. The academic program is great, both of my kids are actually retaining what they learn! There's no bullying among students! I highly recommend this school YOU!

Making the decision to put our 2 daughters in this school has been the best decision! Our girls are happy, they love their school, and don't want to leave at the end of the day... that says a lot of a school. Teachers are great, and you can tell they have a genuine care for each of their students. The best part is that my kids are getting the respect they deserve, all while getting high quality education which they can actually apply! -Happy Parent :)

My daughter has been in Clearwater Academy ever since we moved to the US 5 years ago. She is now 9 years old and I dont see her in any other school. It's like her home. All staff are extremely nice, the whole space and atmosphere of the school is incredible, I dont see any kid fighting with others, My daughter has never been sick and that tells a lot of a school. In this school kids are encouraged to be creative and the amount of artistic related activities is great. No better place for a young kid to start his education. Federico Lorente

"School is the basis of life. A good education determines more than you can imagine. I see the students who graduate every year, and I see how competent they are. I have many dreams, and those dreams being achieved means that I will have to acquire real competence. I believe that I will gain competence and I will most definitely be a great success ."
