Old Redford Academy - Elementary Ratings & Reviews

ORA has been a transformative experience for all of my children. They have recently made numerous changes in administration and those changes are starting to show. Along with a number of other parents, I have had some issues with the Academy in the past but as of now, I can see that it has become a successful educational institution. The teaching staff really shows that they care not only about the students, but about the parents as well. My kids are definitely engaged in classroom content, and go to school everyday, excited about what they may learn. From me, ORA is highly recommended.

1st grade teacher was focused more on classroom behavioral issues than actually educating the children. My child attend ORAE from Preschool through 1st grade and will not be retuning for 2nd. Events are chaotic and unorganized, poor administration and poor quality of education. My 1st grader was stabbed in the hand with a pencil and the teacher said she was being too sensitive because the other student said she was sorry! The same teacher wouldn't allow my child to go to the rest room after repeated request until she couldn't hold it any longer and went right in the classroom - how embarrassing!!! The reasoning was because the children had already taken a few bathroom trips. Unless you like ignorant parents, confusion and chaos, send your child elsewhere... I can't imagine things getting much better based on the other reviews I've read for the higher grades.

My son has been going to ORA since 3rd grade, I've been impressed since day one of the small class rooms, challenging homework, and the support of all the teachers going over and beyond. My son is now in the 5th grade and I'm definitely going to enroll him in the middle school.

I have 4 children at ORA. My oldest is in 2nd grade and has been their for 3 years. My family and I love this school and the environment. They force the children to dress for success on a daily basis and to take responsiblilty for their actions. I am a very involved parent and the staff works with my family and I to make sure my children are getting the best education possible. Some parents need to realize that the educating of our children starts at home and you can't expect everything to be taught in school. If you don't start this process at home, your child is already at a disadvantage.

For the teacher who stated that all Mr. Smith cares about is money, all I have read about is what she is so unhappy about which just happens to be money. This teacher needs to re-evaluate what exactly she is at the school, and is her ultimate goal money or making sure our children learn.
