My daughter has been going for 6 years to Sharp. She has made great friends through it all. The teachers have given her great self-esteem about herself. My daughter struggled in public school but the teachers help her a lot.

Sharp Academy is a God's send and has completely changed our child's life. We were at our wit's end when we found Sharp Academy. Our daughter has severe dyslexia and had trouble keeping up in public school. She always would ask "Why am I different". She is now an A/B student, has so much confidence and doesn't ask that question anymore. The staff is so dedicated and makes sure every child is taught the way that they learn. I highly recommend Sharp Academy for any child that learns differently.

Excellent school, exemplary staff! My middle schooler was riddled with anxiety when it came to school. The structure and staff at Sharp Academy have helped her tremendously! A hidden gem in Lubbock!!

Our son started Sharp as an incoming 6th grader after having been diagnosed with Conversion Disorder (mid 5th grade) and loosing his ability to walk completely. It was attributed to severe anxiety and bullying that he had received in public school. He wasn't physically bullied however as a student who learned " differently" than others he was constantly "left behind" because he couldn't learn the same way as everyone else. So after 4 months of being wheelchair bound and 15 days of in-patient treatment at a local rehab hospital we made the decision to look for a different type of school for him. When we found Sharp it not only changed his life, but ours too. Our family dynamic changed, his attitude and confidence grew and his love of academics began to grow. He is now in 8th grade, has the highest GPA in his class for the 3rd year in a row and loves participating in an sport they offer. His confidence has grown not only academically but also personally. Sharp is a small, but mighty, school that teaches children how they need to learn. They offer different teaching styles in the classroom, tapered to each child's needs. Even if that means teaching one lesson multiple ways in a single lesson. If you are looking for individualized and personalized high level, one-on-one education for your kid, Sharp is the place to be!

Exceptional school. Completely changed our child's life. Sharp Academy has a family atmosphere. The staff is so dedicated to make sure material is delivered in a manner that my child can succeed. Love the small student/teacher ration and have seen such a difference in my Childs confidence now that he knows he can learn.

Life changing! My son went from feeling like a failure to graduating as Valedictorian! We should have moved him before 7th grade! Don't wait, move your child now for the best education available for kids with dyslexia!

I love my job! To see children learn to read for the first time, and high school students graduate with over 20 college hours is amazing. We have a family atmosphere, with talented teachers, that are dedicated to our students success. We have a high retention rate with students and teachers. God has truly blessed the mission of this school.
