The Family School Ratings & Reviews

I think this school has good and its share of bad. I agree with others that the common core is ruining not only this school but many! I think it is time for a change because many students are struggling and many parents are having trouble helping their students to understand.Another issue I have is how much work is being sent home. I am all for helping my child but when they are in school for as long as they are I expect them to be taught AT SCHOOL! Again I am fine helping with homework when needed but not only in my home but it seems more like I am trying to explain and teach my child at home and it leaves me wondering what if anything is taught in class, this is not only my home but after talking with MANY parents they agree. I work all day have to pick everyone up, get home, cook dinner, and spend a couple of hours playing school as well. The evening is wasted, kids are tired, no one is happy, the time is more stressful than bonding or settling down for the evening, and the kids are tired of school too, which is never good as they start to dread it.I think it can work for some but for those of use who work all day and do not have help it starts to be a burden.

Like other reviewers have mentioned, this school is not for everyone. For my family it is perfect. I have an 8th grader, a 5th grader, and a 2nd grader. They all love school. They don't feel like robots that do nothing but school work - they are extremely proud of themselves and their achievements. They are learning personal responsibility and to recognize the growth that they have made. They are never bored. I love that I am involved in their learning - the homeschool component is basically that I help them with their homework, which I want to do anyway. The commitment level for parents is definitely high, but I have no desire to drop my kids off at a school and let them do all the teaching - I want to know what my kids are learning and how it is taught. The school focuses on academics without a lot of extras, BUT there are no classes on Mondays, so that's when many families do music lessons and other supplementary programs. If your children need a challenge academically, you won't do better than this school. (And - if you read the negative reviews, don't they kind of read the same? I wonder if some of them are from the same reviewer?)

This is a great program that allows our kids to be in an environment with all different kinds of people (ethnic, socioeconomic, religions, etc.) like the real world. We get to be heavily involved in their learning and sometimes it is a great deal of work but it is worth it. Unfortunately Common Core and state testing are being required at this school and it has hurt the program. It seemed that this year 2013-2014, the pace of learning slowed down considerably and I am afraid that Common Core is going to ruin what was the best option for our kids. The idea behind Common Core is good but it has been implemented in a way that is hurting rather than helping the children of our nation.

Wow. I am shocked at the negative reviews. We have 3 kids in the program and have been with the school 6 years. I think it's definitely not for everyone, but we are extremely pleased with the quality of the school, the curriculum, and the teachers. I think these dissatisfied parents have gone, because we have zero slots available to new kindergartners as all open slots go to siblings first. This shows significant commitment among existing parents, and is a hallmark of the learning community that we have developed.

If you are wiling to give up any social development with play with other children, free time, and sanity of not only the child, but also the parent. If your willing to, or have the time to devote and extra 20 hours a week to home work, then this would be the school for you.The curriculum is too far advanced, ie. five year old kindergarten children bringing home work that clearly is for fourth and fifth graders, and changes too often, for most of the kids, (even the above average intelligence children). My child attended there for a while, and we decided to go back to public school for a trial period where we learned that wasn't advanced enough. Ultimately we decided on homeschooling which seems to work better than both options. Our child gets a challenging education,equal to, I believe superior to the family school education, but still has time to be a kid, which DID NOT happen at the family school. I suppose the best word to describe the experience here is BURNOUT. Too much work, and too many ridiculous theories of what children should be taught. They need free time to develop. Parent participation is expected, but your time would be better spent homeschooling your own child.
