Queens Paideia School Ratings & Reviews

May 27, 2016 Submitted by a parent
I’m so happy with this school. My child is getting an excellent education in such a supportive and nurturing environment. QPS teachers, called learning managers, hold higher degrees in language, engineering, mathematics, writing, and art. The learning managers and school directors do enforce a strong academic foundation, which I am happy about, but they also strive to strengthen the specific individual skills of each child. The school year is broken up between longer periods of independent guided learned and shorter periods of collaborative learning. This takes some adjustment both for kids and for parents, but the results are so seen so clearly in the kids. The main thing that I have noticed with my child in these two years is that he has developed such an awareness of himself both in terms of his abilities and in how to overcome challenges he faces. Daily, he and his classmates are encouraged to be actively engaged in their own education -to be inquisitive and resourceful, but also to know how, as individuals, to solve academic and personal challenges. It is a small school with mixed age groups, but this just enhances the education experience, in my opinion. Older kids are partnered with younger kids and this is such important lesson in respect, tolerance, and compassion for both age groups. Each Friday the whole school comes together in a town hall meeting where students are encouraged to speak, present ideas, and synthesize and discuss what they've done that week. I love that students are heard and that they learn the importance of having a voice. We couldn't ask for a more academically sound, supportive, and inspiring school.

This school was started by two parents who needed a school for their own children but have no qualifications whatsoever to be educating other people’s kids. Many working at and running the school have no degree, license or any certification in education. This lack of competence has lead to an environment that is both unprofessional and hostile toward families and students.Parents are held at arm's length at Paideia, and true involvement is discouraged and met with a lot of resistance. When a problem or concern arises, it is met with defensiveness and immediate anger. There is neither cooperation nor collaboration to better the education for your child. You either accept everything they do and be quiet, or your family, and most unforgivably, your child will suffer. Our child was a constant victim of the Assistant Director’s moods and standoffishness of some of the learning managers.The school preys on people’s fear of public school, common core and state testing. They will give you a long speech about how Paideia is the only antidote to the current education crisis. However, they are not willing nor able to deliver anything they promise. The “individualized” learning plans are just the same cut and pasted standards put into a document for each student. The “independent” learning consists of students sitting at their desks with workbooks and worksheets. In fact, when it was brought to their attention that after years of being in Spanish that our child still could not utter even a basic sentence, we were simply told to lower our expectations. Queens Paideia also claims to work closely with students on socialization skills. However, our child who has never had any trouble making friends was often isolated and excluded by the other students. Our child was stigmatized early on by staff, and the other students often felt it was acceptable to treat her badly. She often spent recess periods alone because there were no other possibilities for her to find other kids to be with due to the school’s extremely small size.When this was brought to the attention of the staff, they completely denied what was going on and refused to address any social issues.The theory of the school is wonderful. However, a school should be run by professional educators, not just by anyone with a vision.My advice to you is save your money, don’t waste it on Paideia.

My 10 year is learning and thinking in ways that would not be possible anywhere else. She has friends, great relationships with all the staff (who have known her for several years now), and a true love of learning. We couldn't ask for more.

Wonderful and amazing.It's the school you as a parent would design from scratch, and also the one that top educational theorists and philosophers would design. In fact, they did: it's a school whose founders went to the school, who themselves are Columbia-trained academics and educators.Our kids have done very well there and we love it.What we love is- excellent teacher to student ratio -- there are 5 teachers and 2 assistants and...30 kids. - the kids don't have to do the same thing all at the same time, so they can move faster or catch up and the teachers actually have time to help with this- the environment and work far more resembles the world and workplace of the future - far less that industrial revolution factory training centers that most public schools resemble.

After a disastrous 6th grade at a different school, my daughter transferred to QPS. What a difference! The independent work that's a big part of the QPS philosophy allows her to progress at her own speed and also to pursue her interests. This, in turn, helps foster a love of learning. I also appreciate that QPS emphasizes critical thinking over test prep and memorization. The low student-teacher ratio means that the teachers get to know the kids at a deep level not just their academic progress but their emotional growth, as well. QPS has been an exciting and positive experience for my daughter her writing has improved markedly; she has a renewed interest in math; in social studies, she is encouraged to pursue sophisticated and even controversial topics; and she has worked with her science teacher to do follow-up experiments outside of class (at QPS, learning opportunities aren't limited to class time). She has been gently prodded to speak up in class and, consequently, has learned to own her ideas and opinions. Sure, I wish the school was a wee bit larger and that Spanish was taught every day, but those are minor complaints compared to the overall distinction of this school.
