Academically my daughter is delayed. Applewood does an assessment to determine the level of your child, then they craft a curricula to meet them at their level, and to solicit their best performance. Learning is taught not just in a structured environment but it is also imparted through real-life examples. There are regular parent teacher reviews during which time there is an opportunity to discuss progress. I found that I could make suggestions as to changes that I think would benefit my daughter and these are well received. There are also regular reports submitted that identify her academic level, and I can rely on those ahead of the Parent Teacher Conference to identify areas of concern in the teaching methodology, or weakness my daughter exhibits. I also use it to track areas on improvement and to question how this was achieved.
