Polaris Charter School Reviews

2 reviews
Polaris is a hands on school whose philosophy is that every child should work to their full potential. With a one to 16 teacher to student ratio and a caring, nurturing administration that can really happen. This school is best for children who are driven to learn but need an alternative environment to really flourish.

As a parent of Polaris you need to plan on being involved and volunteer, the school’s success is based on a “it takes a village” mindset.

The ideal child that fits this school is gifted in at least a few subjects, curious about the world around them, has had difficulty being restrained to conventional education and would be better suited to a hands on environment.
This school was such a blessing to our family. The biggest gift my son took away from his time at Polaris was the ability to investigate and research the world around him.

Love all that my son has learned and accomplished being a student Polaris. This school is absolutely worth visiting and meeting with the administrator. The students are very much the heart of this school. My son loves his teacher and she is wonderful with communication when needed . His teacher is also very informative regarding my sons progress in her class . I don’t get one sentence answers. I get full page well thought out responses from her . I appreciate that extra time she puts in to make sure my son is getting what he needs and I am given all the information needed to assist my child . I highly recommend this school . Smaller class sizes and hands on project based learning allows for your child’s creative side to really shine and their excitement for learning becomes enhanced .
