38 Parent Reviews for Paideia Academy Charter School

Paideia Academy is a great school. In the past, it was criticized for having high turnover of directors. Now there is criticism over teacher turnover. As a veteran Paideia parent, I have seen many changes and challenges within this school, but what has remained consistent is the high quality of staff, ...  Read more

My son started at Paideia in the 5th grade when the new Director started. Over the past 3 years, she has destroyed the school mission, values, teacher base, and parent base! You question her, you will feel her wrath!

25% of the staff has quit over the course of the year as of today. think twice.

We love this school! Helpful teachers and staff, small community feel, many opportunities for involvement, small class sizes, art, music, Spanish programs, and uniforms.

Paideia Academy used to be an incredible school, but it is a shell of its former self. The wonderful teachers that were passionate about teaching are gone. They were either forced out by the Director or have quickly gone elsewhere. The teachers left in droves last year and now so are the students. ...  Read more

I have to strongly disagree with the last couple of posts. My family has been at the school since 2007 and prior to the last couple of years it was a great experience. However the atmosphere has changed within the school. It has become a revolving door of teachers leaving during the school year. A 2nd ...  Read more

Paideia Academy has set a high standard of learning for other schools. Our 8th grade student transitioned into Eastview HS honor classes without stress. We recently moved to another state. The transition again went smoothly. The other three are ahead of their fellow students; a grade ahead in some ...  Read more
