School Reviews

The hope that was Terra Academy has dimmed. The first two years, Terra Academy was a wonderful, collaborative environment, exceptionally pro-active. Teachers were well-supported by both admin and parents. We were committed to building something new, something needed and essential in our community. Terra's approach to education is flawed only by the lack of effective, responsive, and supportive administration. As the State noose has tightened because of low test scores, admin continues to ignore countless requests and pleadings from teachers for a reading program. A proper language program was only provided for K-3 the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, with significant improvements in language tests (which weren't recognized by admin). Admin remains unresponsive to teachers'' requests for quality, vetted programs that provide the sure foundation for any strong curriculum. The teachers are passionate about doing what's best for students. Unfortunately, with the current administration, mediocre academic results and low to moderate growth is the best parents can expect. Such a shame.
