“Certification was the minimum we expected from an expensive private school.”
One of the many reasons we chose Rubicon academy was its challenging, motivating curriculum that has certainly satisfied our daughter's curiosity. The high teacher-student ratio assures one-on-one attention tailored to her particular needs and degrees of advance in each of the areas. Our daughter is extremely happy and stimulated with her teachers and peers and asks to be at school everyday. What a blessing this is! Because of it's size, teachers, students and parents are very well connected. The teacher staff is very friendly and a joy to be around. This has been very exciting for all of us and we feel that this has been the best decision for our daughter's education. We look forward to many years with Rubicon!!
Our son is growing to his fullest potential.. Our son Devon has attended The Rubicon Academy for 6 years. He was extremely bored and unchallenged in 2nd grade at another school. He tested very well in math but his verbal skills were not as high. When he started attending Rubicon he was able to move ahead at his own pace in math. Today at 14 he has finished pre-cal and is looking forward to AP Calculus. In one year his test scores on the verbal part of the Iowa test increased significantly. Devon has won 1st place in Math at state in PSIA for 2 years in a row. He has medaled in many other subjects as well. He has learned to play the flute beautifully and enjoyed playing at Jones Hall many times with The Rubicon Academy. His SAT score last year was in the top percentile of the Duke TIPS program earning him an invitation to a special awards program at Duke University. He was also picked to attend a national leadership program. While Devon is a very bright person I don
I opened up fully with Rubicon Academy. Life here at The Rubicon Academy has been an experience that I would have never anticipated. It was if my life had never been opened up fully, and yet there is still more I can do. There are always friendly faces around hoping to cheer you up at this school. We are constantly doing new things from visiting a museum to doing a science project. After school activities are another thing that we are doing: PSIA( that is where we do school activities to compete) for example is one of the activities that we do. Another one that we do is the robotic competition where we program Lego pieces to do different tasks. I could have never done anything that I am currently doing for my education. My teacher Dr. Roberts has opened up many doors for my future life, for that I thank her
The difference in our kids is remarkable. Due to his birthday, my youngest son would have started kindergarten late in public school, so we started him in kindergarten at Rubicon instead. Three-fourths of the way into the school year, he was academically surpassing his older brother in 1st grade at public school. So we pulled our older son from public school and put him in Rubicon also. The difference has been remarkable.
Why I like Rubicon Academy. Many things initially drew me to The Rubicon Academy. First, they have an excellent reputation for academic success, music instruction, Spanish, art appreciation and for their participation in many extracurricular activities that enhance instruction and expand real world knowledge. My child thoroughly enjoys every aspect of her school day. She is challenged in many different areas and she loves it. We really enjoy the weekly library trips, Main Street Theatre, Jones Hall performance, as well as the performance at the Rockets game. She has made significant progress in all areas. We are very proud of her and of everyone at The Rubicon Academy.
my kids are getting the best education in the world. Both of my children have attended The Rubicon Academy. I see that they are always stimulated and are so much more advanced in all areas compared to other children their age. They have been exposed to all types of activities that normal children don
Rubicon Academy is the best place for my daughter. My daughter has just completed her first year at Rubicon Academy. We could not be more pleased with how she is progressing. The student/teacher ratio has allowed her to reach her potential in her course work as well as music and art. We could not imagine enrolling her anywhere else.
Excellent job for Rubicon Academy. My granddaughter, Isabel, has truly amazed her grandpa and our whole family. It must be because of all the programs offered, including advanced writing, art and music at The Rubicon Academy
Very Happy. My daughter Kylah started The Rubicon Academy the last nine weeks of the 2010-2011 school year. After about two weeks, she had made tremendous progress and we knew this was the school for Kylah. Rubicon offers many different aspects of education that she would have otherwise not experienced for many more years. Kylah fell in love immediately; she stated "the teachers and staff are nice and friendly". Kylah has had the opportunity to learn everything from Art to World History in Kindergarten. I felt very welcome to the school as Dr. Roberts the director and Mrs.Gunnell, the teacher assisted me in understanding how the school operates. We are very happy about the choice we made for our daughter and look forward to each and every school year.
Rubicon Academy: A Top-Notch School.
My son started at Rubicon Academy as a fifth grader and next year he will graduate from 8th grade. We have been extremely happy with his progress over the past three years. At Rubicon each child is treated as an individual with their own personal talents. My son will complete algebra II this year even though he is only in 7th grade!
At Rubicon he has learned many things including time management, a positive attitude to work, perseverance and respect. It is a top-notch school and I sincerely recommend it for all gifted kids.
