This is my third year of having my son enrolled at Paideia and I can`t imagine him being anywhere else. The advancement in his understanding and learning has been exceptional but beyond that, having teachers and staff that truly care, are kind, patient and love their job makes a difference 100%.

My daughter is academically gifted, socially awkward, and quite sickly. Every part of her is accepted and thriving in this environment. Challenging, Loving, and Caring teachers and administrators.

I stumbled upon Paideia in its inaugural year 2006. Both my children attended, both excelled in academics, both graduated from Paideia with a high GPA. One has finished University and was more than prepared for the challenge graduating ahead of schedule, is working and excelling. Another just entered a senior college of Engineering freshman year. He is excelling in his studies. They are ordinary kids, but Paideia prepared them to operate at above average level. I am a big believer in the Classical Model of the Trivium and in teachers and faculty of the Paideia school of Tampa Bay.

The Paideia School of Tampa Bay is a great Classical & Christian School offering strong academics and a wholesome campus culture. As parents we were very concerned with the quality of education within the public school system so we searched for options and we feel our prayers were answered. Take a tour and you will be impressed.
