31 Parent Reviews for Trafton Academy

We have been at Trafton for many years and will be there for 5 more years when our youngest graduates 8th grade. Trafton has been a blessing for us because it is the perfect blend between public and private. Expectations are high at Trafton but all the teachers and staff are there to help you succeed. ...  Read more

I can not sing the praises of Trafton loudly enough! The teachers are caring and sweet and provide wonderful instruction and organizational skills that will follow the children long after they complete 8th grade. The students are well mannered and if there are any issues with the children, it is handled ...  Read more

I've been a Trafton parent for 8 years & disagree with the Nov 21 post. Most Trafton teachers have at least ten years experience there & provide reliable continuity through the grade levels. They teach time management & organizational study skills that are age appropriate typically resulting in well ...  Read more

Our child went to Trafton for 6th grade. We were sold on the small class size, attention from the teachers to help learn better organizational skills and the nurturing environment. They did very well making honor roll every quarter. In 7th grade that all went away. Under the guise that students must ...  Read more

I am a student here. The other kids are nice, my teacher is good. I don't get bullied. I like that it is a small school so I get to know other kids in other grades.

This school is not for us either. I am 100% agree with previous post. After two years with Trafton Academy, we moved our child to local public school. We do not miss Trafton Academy at all.

Trafton is not for us. Not sure how others define structure and discipline but we saw little of it. Classrooms often chaotic and out of control. Teachers will leave class unattended. Distractions are allowed. I agree with other postings here that teachers seem lazy. I'm sure they feel like they're busy, ...  Read more

Trafton Academy is a wonderful school. I have attended here since 4th grade and I have just graduated and am about to enter my freshmen year at Strake Jesuit. Since my 4th grade year at Trafton I have learned and accomplished a great deal. The teachers are great and I would like to thank all of my teachers ...  Read more

Well, my child has just finished the first school year. He is the kind of child that likes to move around a lot and I wasn't sure he would thrive at Trafton. But he has. His math and language arts as well as his organizational habits have improved tremendously. The discipline and structure, and the kind, ...  Read more

This school is a rip-off. I went here from 5th to 8th grade and it was a terrible experience. I can honestly say that Trafton ruined my childhood. The teachers are incompetent and lazy. I learned no study habits or anything really. Moreover, they do not bother disciplining their students. When I was ...  Read more
