Lourdes Public Charter School Reviews

I was so blessed to find Lourdes for my children. The kids have to work hard, but they are given lots of support to learn and be successful! Families are very involved which makes a huge difference in the quality of education the kids recieve, and there is a great community atmosphere. Class sizes are small. This school takes a more traditional approach to learning, which I was initially afraid would not work well for my adhd dyslexic daughter, but the combination of some private tutoring and the encouragement of her teachers, she is now in high school caught up with her peers. I fully attribute this to her teachers perserverance in supporting her. We enrolled her at the beginning of 7th grade after moving to the area. She was very far behind. The staff pushed her to be her best, and she advanced farther than I would have thought possible when we enrolled her. I have deep thankfulness for the staff at Lourdes.

While the school's website claims to meet children at the level in which they are ready, this is only true to the extent the teacher thinks they are mature enough to be with children older than they. The material the child needs is not brought to them, rather the child is required to join the class. This can be a problem when it conflicts with other subjects the child needs. Often, the child will receive instruction only, then need to take the work home, so this impacts their ability to get help. As there is a lot of unnecessary busy work, I wouldn't recommend the school for a child who learns with little repetition of material. The school pushes an excessive amount of parent driven activities, and the majority of the burden falls to those parents that have been active in the past. Most of the parents don't participate. The principal is also the school's 7-8 teacher and is difficult to communicate with. The hierarchy of authority is dis-functional, and grievances go ignored.
We love Lourdes. My student has grown so much here. Not only academically but also emotionally. I would recommend the school a thousand times over
