32 Parent Reviews for Challenger-ardenwood School

Since there is no 0 or -ve star I had to pick 1 star, but this school doesn't deserve the 1 star. The management is horrible with their ridiculous rules and they do not listen to your concerns or feedback. This obviously has trickled down to the teachers. If you have any questions, the middle school ...  Read more

This review is based on my experience with preschool through KG. I was worried initially about the environment being too aggressive, based on the "general impression" of the school but so far it has not reflected on my kids and they love going to school everyday. They are learning a lot and more importantly, ...  Read more

I went to this school from preschool to 8th grade, and I really hope you choose not to send your child here. The management makes some ridiculous policies, the history teachers enforce their political views on students, all the extracurricular activities are a joke (once per week and not nearly intense ...  Read more

I live very close to this school, but send my kids to another private school. Parents feedback about excessive homework, not helping kids who are falling behind, not encouraging individuality and high fees have given me an aversion this school. The feedback on this site tells me I am right!

My son has gone to Challenger since pre-K through 3rd grade. Great school for academics. I like the way they teach Math, Languages and Logic. They need to make Geography more interesting. They have also introduced sports programs during after school daycare. My son would finish homework during after ...  Read more

Challenger is a school for parents who are 100% focused on their children's education and not extracurricular activities. My daughter, finished 4 yr. pre-school and will start kindergarten soon. What she has already learned is amazing. I have no doubt that she is ahead of any 1st grade class at any ...  Read more

I would never recommend this school for any parent. Children are just pushed way beyond their capacity. Teachers don't teach the concept really well. All they do is testing. Every week nearly 5 or 6 tests are held. My daughter is not allowed to talk in the class. Teachers are frustrated and using foul ...  Read more
