great school for rude teachers and administration people. My son went to challenger school. Good thing is they have good reading program. Rest is pretty bad. They bring on board really low quality indian teachers(who cant speak english very well themselves). Since they accept really low salary( no body else is giving any work). Challenger is purely business, ruthless school. They put the number of kids in a class at the states highest level allowed in a class(1:32). Worst than public schools. I had never seen smile on some of the teachers face. Basically you are paying really high fee for low grade teachers. They are collecting money based on brand name, not on good teacher or facility. Administration is miserable. Stratford is booting them out. Recently challenger closed pomeroy campus, stratford just opened a new branch there. Thats a clear indication of slowly they are loosing business to stratford. Also the teaching is based on 1970 model. If you look at the dvd's, they give to kids for 4 years(preschool), all the actors in that dvd's are dressed like 70's dresses. They never even bother to change the dvds. Their fees are about 50% higher than stratford(17000 vs 12000) for preschool. Send your kid to stratford and extra reading practice, you can send your kids to www dot thereadingclinic dot com, where they give one to one direct training. Still you will save lot of money. Never show your kid to this school. They work like pimps, taking every penny from parents and providing low quality teachers.
Challnger school at Palo Alto.
I had very good impression about challenger schools, but when I sent my kid to Palo Alto school, my impression is completely changed. Staff at Palo Alto school is completely ruthless, they are just money minded and they do not show any courtesy with parents. Their directors are very frustrating; I am not sure why their management not taking any action or teaching some customer care classes to their directors.
I never recommend any one to Palo Alto challenger until their directors are replaces especially in their pre school program
this one really sucks. because I can add my bad rating again without any restriction. man, I will never belive your Rating stuff.
