GREAT SCHOOL!, 12/31/2014

We have been very happy here! I was worried coming from a public school that she would be behind. But the teachers are fantastic and she fits right in! She loves that she is learning Chinese and... Spanish in the sixth grade. I love the small class size. The teachers really get to know the students. When I asked her what she liked most about Lyndon, she said the teachers! "Some teachers go by the book. But Ms. Johnston rewrote the book!" That is the Language Arts teacher. She also loves her other teachers but Ms. Johnston realizes her gift in writing and really encourages her passion. There are other private schools out there. But I can't imagine finding better teachers. They are hand picked by the headmaster! They take learning to a whole new level.

Middle Grades Science is lacking, 12/26/2014

We were quite happy with this private school at first. Our child excelled for several years- learning several languages and was being challenged daily. They were opening a middle school so we were... happy to be able to continue the trend. Middle grades Science proved to be challenging early on. Lots of busy work with a teacher that expected it to be finished very fast. Grades that were A's started plummeting. Several parents were concerned for their children so we all just tried to work it through. When you are being told that its on the kid with no ownership from teacher- it makes a parent skeptical. We sleuthed and found an educational background that was lacking a bit in the Math and Sciences and no bachelor's in Education. The Masters degree was in educational technology which seemed very neat at first but the kids can't just learn to do robotics. They needed a more stable Science background. Ms. McNutt (Rebecca Rumrill Collins- I am told as she recently married) is still employed with the school in the same capacity. She would be great with elementary age students but not children in middle grades. Overall a great start for younger children.

Highly Recommended!

My son has attended Lyndon Academy since Kindergarten and it has been a great experience. The teachers truly care about their students and really motivate them to go above and beyond in their education.
