    I am a parent of two scholars who are in 4th and 6th grade. They have attended the school since it opened it's doors in my community. I must say my girls are getting the best education!! They are introduced to the most amazing things. They are training these kids to succeed!! The staff is wonderful and are proactive in communicating with parents. There needs to be more schools like this one. If your child gets accepted take is as a blessing you will not be disappointed!!

    As a parent of two SA3 scholars One of which I've recently decided to withdraw from SA I have very mixed emotions about the SA network. While the rigorous academic program is great the school does absolutely nothing to foster the childs emotional development and well being. There is no encouragement to embrace individualism add to that the militaristic approach to behavior this I feel is an unhealthy environment for young minds. This is the reason I've chosen to withdraw my kindegartener. To any parent considering choosing SA for their child I wouldn't rule it out however its something to think about.

    This school is absolutely amazing my son just entered kindergarden and within 2 weeks he has learned so much from discipline to academics. The teachers and staff are so professional and love their job. You have to be very committed to the school bc there are a lot of meeting but is worth it for your child. I love the fact that they prepare them for college at such a young age bc with so many student drooping off this is excellent. Their standards are set really high for the scholars but it great bc they want the student to be the best and to excel and not to berely pass.

    Teachers at Success Academy (SA) schools are dedicated and hard working. They work tireless hours and teach to the same demographic as any public school teachers. The bar of expectations is set high for both educators and scholars being their main mission of preparing children for college. Teachers and administrators strive for this every day including weekends in many cases fostering a fun learning environment for all students. The collaboration from parents educators and scholars is a mandatory prerequisite. Going into partnership (as a marriage) ready to commit. It is important to know there are many obstacles along the way. It is disappointing to see the hostility in other public schools toward charter. Exercising your parent choice is key. I have been on both sides of the coin. I can proudly say I am content with my decision. Inclusive we relocated to Staten Island and chose to remain at SA because of the high caliber of education received. Many parents as myself are road warriors as a result of the unique educational environment as well. If you want dedicated educators supporting you thru the journey of educating your child SA is the way to go. Maria Torres

    My son attends this school and I feel like it is a Great School!!. The teachers are dedicated and my son is doing excellent in academics. I wouldnt want him anywhere else.

    I love the way our child is challenged daily in every class. The classes are split up into groups based on each child's knowledge so they are always pushing their 'scholars' to go 'Beyond Z'.
