Triumphant Learning Center Ratings & Reviews
While many in the community believe this school is no longer run by the founder, it still is. THis is a terrible school in most areas. Safety is a big problem in class and on the playground. They have cameras, so classes are often left unsupervised for meetings. Untrained parents and aides monitor "most" of the playground. Parents run PE. The only thing they do right is regular tutoring after school. The staff hand picks all students in a screening system. They put kids on a waiting list, mostly because they are small and do not have enough room to accomodate (not because they are a great school). This school attracts a strange crowd of helicopter parents, but does have a few good families attending. The principal gets rid of kids not making the grade or high test scores since this makes them look bad. Due to the overly conservative rules, she can use anything to drop them (hair color for example). Interestingly enough, even with the students and adult's questionable ethics, they were still outscored by the local middle school this year in all areas.
I disagree with the last two post. My kids have been going there for 5 years and I am very involved in the school and here are the facts. Yes, the budget as a charter school really limits the facilities and the amount our teachers can get paid and that can cause turnover. This is also not the place to send your child if you want their life to revolve around sports. And the principle is not your typical administrator. But she is the founder of the school and has her doctorate and expects kids to actually behave and be respectful! In response to "the kids run the school", well in some respects they do. They have duties like preparing the Thanksgiving dinner, sweeping up the lunch area and cleaning the kitchen daily. There is also a buddy program that gives responsibility to the older kids to help mentor the younger students. They have a lot of duties and take a much larger role in the success of their school than other Safford schools. And parents are often involved with helping out in class because they want to be there and it helps the budget. There are no busses and there is not a cafeteria. This again requires involved parents. It isn't perfect, but it is the best in Safford!
As the previous reviewer stated, all new teacher's again, standing joke. This past year there were 3 1st year teachers and 1 2nd year and 1 3rd year teacher as close as I could figure. That's the whole staff of teachers since the school is combo classes. Paid parents teach PE and music, and paraprofessional teaches Spanish, a parent for aids when aids are fired, again, probably due to inaccurate gossip. !Gruff principal! teacher's with attitudes, mostly about fashion and their appearance. Kids run the school. Not sure why the good aims scores, probably the previous writer had it correct when she stated "Students constantly cheat".
This school is the worst I've seen in all my years as a teacher. The students are constantly unsupervised, the principal is very unprofessional and never supports her teachers in matters of discipline or even basic curriculum. Of the five teachers at this school, 4 of them are brand new because all the teachers quit or get fired due to inaccurate gossip. The PE & language classes are run by parent volunteers or non-certified aides. The grades are combined, the facilities are terrible and there are hardly any extracurricular activities. The few activites they have are lacking in money, talent and spirit. Students constantly cheat, pick on each other and have very little respect. It''s very sad that this is a school and this one gives a bad name to "charter school".
My son loves this school. It is a great school with lessons in excellence of character as well as academics. My sons teacher is the best and I feel that he is being challenged and encouraged to learn. What a great school!
