My daughters have attended Thales WF for 6 years. We've been pleased with the academic rigor and small school environment. The leadership at the WF campus is excellent, and the teachers are caring and knowledgeable.

Our son is finishing up his Pre-K year at Thales, and we couldn't be happier with the school, teachers, and administrators. We have been so pleased with our son's progress throughout the year. The teachers and administrators do an outstanding job of keeping parents informed. We also love the fact that character development is a high priority at the school and has never worried for a second about the school environment for our child. Our youngest son will be soon follow at Thales and would highly recommend this school to any parents.

My son just started attending Thales-Apex this year (6th grade) after going to a public school in Wake County. We were very unhappy with the new cc curriculum that NC, along with most other states, adopted. My son always made straight A's until this new curriculum was introduced, at which point he started to really struggle. There was no structure in the public school and the lessons were very unorganized, nor were the students allowed to bring text books home so that parents could help. We finally made the choice to move to a private school and we wanted one that was small where my son wouldn't be just another face. Thales is the perfect size and they are very much like a large "family" where they welcome new students with open arms. The direct instruction is wonderful and very easy for my son to follow and he is back to making straight A's. He has a few struggles from time to time but the teachers will always stay late to help the students or pull them aside during electives for help. There is a lot of homework, which at times can make it hard for him with trying to juggles sports and downtime, but I think it is really good for him. I also love the structure that this school brings, teaching organization and having actual due dates, etc. is very crucial for you kids. We couldn't be happier that we found Thales!
