My son has been attending Paidea for 2 years. In this time he has learned so much. The staff and teachers have been wonderful. If a parent is looking for a wonderful school that would help shape your child's education, look no further than Paidea Classical Academy.

I worked at Paideia Classical Academy full-time for one year.I felt that The Pre-K and Elementary program was strong with good teachers.I have been teaching for 20-plus years and was excited about starting at Paideia, thinking that it was going to be organic, classical, and Christian... it turns out to have been none of those things. The only green thing about it is a gardening club that meets after school once a week to work on a single planter box. Poor behavior by the students is often ignored by the staff. Most importantly, the curriculum is incredibly lop-sided-especially at the middle and high school levels. High school students have 15 hours of language arts each week and only 5 hours of math, 2 hours of science, and 2 hours of history! I felt that rather than being better prepared than the public school student, these students were actually worse off-especially at the high school level. It's a decent place for the elementary ages, but beyond that I would never send my child here. The administration needs to work on creating a decent and competitive curriculum for Paideia's older students.

I love Paidea's nurturing, loving and academic enviroment for my 4 and 10 year olds. They are advancing academically at such a faster and advanced pace, than my friend's kids who are at other private schools. The curriculum is wonderful in order to let kids advance at their own pace and many kids in the school are skipping gradea and above grade level. My boys love their teachers and are actually excited to go to school!!! Beautiful and serene campus too!!

What a great school for my 3 kids!!! I love that they are in a safe, loving and Christian enviroment. Many academic perks too! Top notch education!! My 2, 6 & 13 year olds , could not be happier there. I would not have them anywhere else, and hoping my husband doesn't get transferrred for his job, because I want to keep them there until they finish highschool there. The highschool kids are already taking college credits and attending college campus, which can allow them to graduate college in 2& 1/2 to 3 years, instead of the normal 4 years of college. Great teachers, they really care about the kids and are invested in making the kids excell at their full potential.

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!

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

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.
