I have read the reviews with a heavy heart. Saratoga Academy is sadly out of loop when it comes to best teaching as a private school. The hype seems real, the teachers are real (when they are in their classrooms actually teaching!). When it comes to the concerns of the clients, you know, the ones that are actually paying for the school well, THERE IS NONE! If you voice a concern, you are spoken to, promised a resolution, but there is none. The playground is dangerous especially when their is no ACTIVE SUPERVISION. Adults talking on the side and kids getting hurt is not actively watching kids. The hot lunch, we also pay for ahead of time, has been a joke. My child was told that this is not the day for pizza go away, and it was. We never got any money or additional lunches from it.
The kicker is the joke of Character Education. The children are supposed to act better than the Headmaster who yells so loudly children are scared. It seems like a scene from ,"Matilda". One instance had several students pee in the pants they were yelled at so severly! UNACCEPTABLE!!
Do parents really want to pay for this???? And please don't ask for reciepts or bills for things like aftercare, because anyone who is responsible is let go and the administration takes over but has no organization!!
