27 Parent Reviews for Le Jardin Academy

This is a wonderful school. The teachers are into the program and invested in thed kids being the best they can be. The IB program is fantastic and prepares the kids for a real college environment. They don;t need to knock the schools on the other side of the Pali as they are equal if not much better. ...  Read more

Our family moved to Kailua 2 years ago. I toured a number of schools and was very impressed with Le Jardin. I have been a pediatric occupational therapist for many years and have a very strong belief that you learn through "doing''. Memorization of material and worksheets are not the best learning ...  Read more

I am a former student of LJA. It's strange to read reviews that give glowing marks to LJA, but feel the need to bash the other schools "over the Pali". Maybe they are so insecure with their little, isolated private school, that it makes them feel better to "know" that they are not wasting over $17,000. ...  Read more

I am truly impressed with Le Jardin Academy and the PYP. My daughter began at the school four years ago, then we transferred internationally for two years and were SAVED by the high level of IB readiness into another PYP school, and returned for 3rd grade. As a fourth generation product of Punahou, ...  Read more

I attended Le Jardin from 7th grade through 12th and graduated with an IB diploma. Reading some of these reviews is truly disheartening to me, as I loved my experience at LJA. While going through the IB program we all had our struggles with adjusting to a new curriculum, but ultimately it was for the ...  Read more

I attended LJA from JK all the way until 8th grade, just before the IB program was instituted. I'm glad to say that I got out at the right time. JK through 5th grade was actually very good. However, in middle school things started to change. LJA was transitioning from a conventional school to an IB school. ...  Read more

The education is no different from a public school, they offer little to no creativity for children. many teachers are flat out grouchy and the staff (teaching and head master included) have no problem gossiping to parents about other parents. Unless you are a parent that wants to drop your child off ...  Read more

We have two sons who have attended LJA since kindergarten and are now in grades 6 and 10. The IB program is challenging both for the kids and for the school in terms of implementation. My boys can memorize and take tests just fine, but when it comes to reflecting and communicating what they have learned ...  Read more

When out with my son at a childrens museum in Honolulu, I ran into Le Jardin students who were on a field trip. Although the students were well behaved, I felt the staff (who were identified by badges) rude and some what snobby. They acted as if they owed the museum and no other children should be near ...  Read more

Our kids went all the way through LJA and I would say from pre-K to six grade was excellent. It was from 7th grade on that I gave the school the low grading. The headmaster was horrible but had the support of the board so nothing got done. The IB system was too complicated for this school to take on ...  Read more
