LAUREN & RICK HAJJAR
In addition to a strong academic focus, our children are learning the competencies needed for future success such as empathy, self and group awareness, financial management and communication skills. [...] Most importantly, they are happy at 2nd Nature Academy. They feel respected, heard and understood within this school community. At the end of the day, that is our measure of success!
Kids develop critical thinking skills and solve their own interpersonal conflicts with support and guidance from the staff. They learn the importance of respect, communication and working as a team. As we teach and reinforce these same values at home, I can see these skills emerging in my 7-year old son; and as a result I see increased self-confidence and greater independence.
Their advanced classes gave me a boost for the complex math [and science] that I am currently learning. I also find projects are easier for me to manage [because of my experience at 2nd Nature Academy] and the curriculum helped me gain merit badges for the Boy Scouts. 2nd Nature Academy gave me the foundation I needed to make it to where I am today.
