    don't care for the school. too many complaints from students .don't like the area where the school is located. On my first visit I thought this would be an excellent school but have since found out it is not.

    Times2 is the best charter school and third best school in Rhode Island. As a parent I am very proud for the achievement of this school. Yes there are some disappointments in the grading system of some teachers but the academic progress is not compromised. I am really a big fan of the mathematics teachers (Ms. Childress Ms. Britto) tough grades but big knowledge for my child. I know the school is facing challenges of academic budget year it will be appreciated if they can find a way to appropriate fund for after school programs. WAL

    The school is truly doing its best in educating our children and working with parents.

    Times2 Academy is really into getting and keeping parents involved in their childs education. They have many opportunities for parents to volunteer and be involved.

    I'm in 8th grade and although T2 has dissappointed me as times I know that I'm learning things that most other schools don't teach until the students go to high school. Even though I utterly failed in 6th grade and came close to failing in 7th grade it wasn't because the school is that way but it is because I was not responsible with my grades and fooled around. Even though I definitely want to go to a different school next year I feel that this school is very encouraging and if you stay on track you can be successful. D

    I was thrilled when my son got into the Academy. I heard wonderful things about the school. My experience there was a bit disappointing. Academically it is OK so far. But there is more to a successful school than test scores and graduation rate. This school has very low parent involvement and very poorly functioning PTO. Administration needs to get their act together and learn to communicate to parents. Any communication from the administration is done not proactively as it should be but as an afterthought in response to concerns and rumors. An amazing resource the web page is underutilized poorly maintained and outdated. There are very few extracurricular activities and no after school programs for younger kids. I hope the school improves in the upcoming year and lives up to its reputation and fame as a great Providence charter school.

    My son began his schooling @ Times2 in 8th grade when the school was just being announced for enrollment. The teachers were involved and the curriculum is superb! I would tell any parent to get your child on this waiting list if you want them to succeed. My son now is in 11th grade and struggling a bit and the teachers are not as involved however if you have a child that would love to have AP classes in 11th grade that Cranston West has in 12th send him/her. The only thing I suggest is to go to parent teachers and really get involved because a few teachers aren't as involved as they should be at this point. The small classes should give not only the student but also the teacher the time to communicate with each other and the parent. HIGH FIVE TIMES!

    My son goes to Time 2 Academy. I must say this school is on par with most of the prominent private schools in the district. The main focus is math science & engineering which is much needed if our children are to compete globally. The teachers have each student's best interest at heart. They want them to succeed. The environment is conducive to learning. I must say they do not have an active sports curriculum or much extra-curricular activities. If this is rectified Times 2 will be second to none and this includes the prominent private schools. The teachers and I have a good relationship.I am always informed of my child's progress whether its positive or negative. Discipline is utmost. Like any other institution some things will fall through the cracks. The faculty staff & parents are always working to make improvement.

    Academically Times2 is challenging and above other Providence schools including Classical. However regarding discipline and dealings with some of the teachers the school needs improvement. Teachers are not always honest about things they say or that transpire in their classes when confronted by parents. This is continued through the administration as they back the staffs word as if the students are always lying. I feel this is a slap in the face of a concerned parent especially when the teachers & administration want parental support when a child has a discipline issue but then are not truthful when it comes to problems they create.

    I think this school is ok academically; however I find the discipline to be similar to regular public school. The school does not report incidents truthfully.

  • (9 years ago)

    I attend Times Squared Academy and i believe it's a good school. It's great because it's small and the students all get along and the students have a great relationship with the teeachers which i think is good because if you're going through something personal and you tell a teacher the teacher will try to understand and they care. this school is Greay!

    I think that Times2 Academy is a terrific school. This school provides students with a great school environment where they are able to work up to their full potential and receive encourangement from their teachers. From a student's perspective it seems like this is one of the best school for any child to obtain all the skills neccesary in order to suceed.

    I personlay thing this school is okay. The things I do not like would be the uniform. The students should be able to wear what they want to wear to express there personality and the way they want to come to school. If they want to come in sweats they should. I also do not like the fact you connot wear what you want to wear for PICTURE DAY. its your own picture wear what you want to wear. Also the sneakers all students should be allowed to wear sneakers at lest black. Students feel comfomtable wearing sneakers then boots. I like the academics and the size but just try o increase the population just a little bit would be GREAT.

    I love this school. It is very academic. My son is learning so much and loves it there. The teachers are fabulous and truly love what they do there. The elementary principal is wonderful.

  • (11 years ago)

    I love the structure of the school the discipline and most of all I like the dress code. Wearing a uniform to school gives children more confidence because they don't have to worry about other children making fun of their clothes or shoes they're wearing so they can concentrate more in class. In general I like everything about times 2 academy.

  • (11 years ago)

    Times 2 is overall a great school. The small class sizes allow the students to establish a great connection with the teachers and staff members. The students become close and create a safe environment for themselves and come together as a community to help each other out. Teachers are able to give students individual attention and help to suit their needs. Times 2 provides a learning environment seldom found in other schools.
