We were concerned about the education our son was getting at the public school for the past 2 years. Yes, we saw some work being done, but I feel he was not being pushed or motivated enough to get the best out of him. A few years back our son was in a large private school with a great reputation, yet, I could see him under allot of stress and being "left back" by the teachers, since they are not able to put enough attention to him with such a large class room. Getting him enrolled to the Rubicon Academy was a major decision for us because it’s a small school and different than most schools we know, but after a couple of interviews with Dr. Roberts I could sense her passion for teaching, the many years of experience she has and most importantly her understanding of working with kids with special learning needs. Our son needed this special attention and patience that Dr. Roberts has provided him. It’s been just 2 months since he started at the Rubicon Academy and I'm so happy of the big changes and amazing progress I see in him. He is happy to go to school every day. Now I know that this difficult decision we faced will pay off for many years to come. I believe I will remember my boy "before Rubicon" and "after Rubicon"... I know my son has a big future!
Our boys started in Ms. McConnell’s preschool class this year and love their introduction to school. They are thriving with the structured learning activities and look forward to each new educational experience. We especially love the new interactive learning boards and plan to donate additional funds for such innovative learning modalities.
This is my son’s third year at The Rubicon Academy. He is now in the all day classroom and is doing a terrific job. At only 4 years old, he has already begun to master many of his site words, his handwriting is incredible for his age, and he is starting to master basic math skills. He is achieving what many 6 year old in the regular classroom have just started to learn. He is also doing well learning his Spanish (he enjoys counting and singing songs in Spanish) and playing his recorder. One of his paintings was entered into the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo as well. He also enjoys his Lego robotics class tremendously and that has helped with his fine motor skills and problem solving skills. I am very pleased with the progress he is making in school and with how wonderful his teachers are.
We are thrilled to have discovered The Rubicon Academy. My child is finally being engaged and challenged academically. My child enjoys the numerous field trips that give him great exposure to the arts. I am impressed by my son’s progress in the school’s fine arts program. He pulls out his flute and starts playing tunes at every opportunity. He also loves to show off his Spanish to me. As a Spanish teacher myself, I am impressed with his knowledge and accent after only 2 years. My child also has a wonderful report with his teacher, who is a jewel. I am delighted by the progress my son has made during his time at The Academy.
We were drawn to The Rubicon Academy because of the small class sizes and individualized teaching. Although our son has only been enrolled for a couple of months, we are amazed at the progress he has made, especially in reading and learning to play the recorder. We have been very impressed with the well rounded curriculum including the fine arts program and extracurricular activities. Our son has been excited about his experience and we are looking forward to the rest of this year and many more years to come at The Rubicon Academy.
I could not be more thrilled with our experience at The Rubicon Academy. My child is thriving. Shi is lovingly cared for, appropriately challenged and is evolving as a well rounded, healthy, considerate child. I am so happy we happened upon the Rubicon. We are very grateful for all they have done for our daughter.
The support staff members are experts in their respective fields of study and expose students to a wealth of real world experiences. Each member of the school's support staff adds significant value to the school's vision and commitment to providing a challenging and enjoyable learning experience to its students by merging real-world experiences into the school's dynamic curriculum. In addition to working at the Rubicon Academy, the art teacher works with the Woodlands Art League and the Woodland Waterway Art Festival. In like manner, Rubicon's Robotics teacher is a part-time Robotics teacher at the University of Houston. The Spanish teacher also teaches at Lone Star College, and the math teacher/tutor is a retired public school teacher and curriculum writer.
The school advocates acceleration, creative and critical thinking and problem solving through its use of the National Standards, Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), the Core Knowledge curriculum and the Texas Tech online curriculum. Creative and critical thinking are emphasized at the Rubicon Academy through their Robotics and Educational Lego programs. These initiatives not only promote teamwork, they enable students to hone their critical and higher order thinking skills. Use of the Core Knowledge Sequence affords students the opportunity to learn the important knowledge they will need to make significant progress in school and be effective in society. The Core Knowledge Sequence is aligned to the TEKS and is an excellent companion piece to the National Standards. Rubicon's school culture and climate are aligned with the campus' vision of acceleration, creative and critical thinking and problem solving.
The strong sense of family and team spirit permeates throughout the school and adds a unique richness to the school's multiage culture and strengthens each student's sense of self-reliance. Rubicon Academy exemplifies a strong sense of family and team spirit, as evidenced by students helping and encouraging each other, as well as teachers helping students to be their personal best. The school has created a learning environment for students that nurtures a sense of caring, and belonging is evident in every facet of the work of the school. Successful schools have positive and productive working relationships that are established among students, support staff and administrators.
My child has completed his preK year at The Rubicon Academy. I am so impressed with how much he has learned this past year. We started the year not knowing how to write very well, only knowing a few site words and not really have any math skills. Now he has excellent penmanship, can read the I can read books, learned basic math, time and money facts. I never expected him to be able to paint a picture and have it earn a prize at the Livestock Show and Rodeo or to become a proficient lego builder/problem solver. I can't express enough gratitude to the teachers at The Academy for helping my son become the best that he can be.
