Both of my daughters just love Courthouse Academy! For the past two years they have enjoyed wonderful teachers and a safe, loving environment in which to learn and grow. My youngest was so shy when she first came and now she is really coming out of her shell and learning so much. My oldest, in Pre-K now just lights up telling me all of the days events. I can't believe the things she is learning at age 4. She can count to 100! I can't say enough about the director and staff for how well things are run. I would recommend this school to anyone. What a wonderful place for young children to learn!
My daughter loves the school and I think she has the best pre-school teacher ever. I like that they do a lot of artwork and activities. Last year I would've rated the school a five star but this year there seems to be an odd transitioning going on...might be connected to the down-turn in the economy?
My daughter started at Courthouse Academy in the 2yr class and stayed until after Kindergarten. My son started there last year in the 2yr old class and I also plan to keep him there through Kindergarten. The individual attention each and every child receives on a day to day basis is amazing. My kids leave there happy everyday and that makes all the difference in the world as a mother. I would recommend this school to anyone.
I have a 3 year old daughter who has been attending Courthouse Academy since summer 2009. I have nothing but good things to say about this preschool. I had 3 criteria while looking for a preschool for my daughter. Clean place, good hygiene practice at school, Academics and Friendly staff. And Courthouse Academy has all three plus more to offer. The director is always on site, and very involved (with children, parents and staff). She is always approachable. All the staff members are very friendly. The class size is great and student teacher ratio is well maintained. They have a very detailed daily schedule, which I like the most. Calenders are handed out each month, with details about what would be covered on a particular day. This way I know what is my daughter learning everyday. I would definitely recommend this school.
My child has been attending Courthouse for almost two years now, and I have nothing but positive things to say about the teachers, director, and administrative staff. The teachers worked hard to teach my son, and always seemed enthusiastic about their job. I love the focus on education by using fun and crative ways to keep the children engaged and excited about learning. My husband and I decided to enroll our son in kindergarden at Courthouse because we feel he will get the best possible educational experience there. Finally, the director has always been approachable and friendly towards me and always available to address my questions and concerns. I highly reccomend Courthouse Academy to anyone who wants their child to have a positive, fun and educational experience at a preschool.
I have found Courthouse Academy beyond my expectations. From the minute you walk in the door you are greeted by helpful and friendly staff. A tour of the school seems to find everyone busy and the teacher to student ratio is perfect. As far as the Director's attitude - I found her very kind and caring and espically patient with my child who immediately wanted to be a part of the classes as we toured the school. Of course I have heard and read bad reviews but it appears the good seem to exceed the bad by a wide majority. Also-a turn over in teachers is to be expected as the teachers are not obligated to stay forever-change is hard but you adjust-ask any military family-I am perfectly happy with my decision-
As far as I am concerned, this school was not for me. The teachers were great and now they are gone. Too many changes in one year for any child. I am not sure what happened but my guess it wasn't the teachers. Found an even better pre-school down the road. Change well worth it!
So many things changed at the end of the school year that I didn't feel my child could continue there. Between teachers leaving and the director's attitude I felt it was best to leave.
I wish Courthouse Academy went through middle school... we'd keep our kids here throughout their entire education. The one-on-one focused attention our children have received is the best in the area and the skills they've learned and friendships they've made are taking them through their elementary years right now. It's a great school!
I have been a teacher at Courthouse Academy for the past 13 years. My son, a 5th grader, and my daugher, a high school senior both attended Courthouse Academy. As a parent and a teacher, I am very happy with the school and the director. I have seen many changes over the years, always in the best interest of the school and the children who attend.

Courthouse Academy is a wonderful place for children. The staff is very knowledgable and caring. The academics far exceed what is learned at other preschools. My 9 hear old had a rock solid foundation for elementary school. My two younger children currently attend the school. They absolutely love going to school every day! This will be their second yer at the school. They have learned more than their peers who attend other preschools in the area. This school is well worth visiting!
I've seen so many different schools in the VB area and Courthouse Academy exceeds all of them! My daughter is so happy here-- the teachers, who have been at this school for years-- are wonderful and caring. The parents are always welcome here and there are so many opportunities to share in our children's education. We'll be here for a few more years and we have no doubt our daughter is receiving the best preschool education around!
I have two of my children currently enrolled at Courthouse Preschool and I plan to enroll my third as soon as she's old enough to attend. Not only is it a quality educational program with great emphasis on the basics, but it's a wonderful, socially enriching environment. The teacher/student ratio is low, thereby giving my children the one-on-one attention they need and deserve. This is my son's third year and I can't recall a single day where he hasn't had a huge smile on his face going to or coming from school. The teachers are warm to parents, and patient and calm with the kids. Just about every day, the director is in the halls greeting the kids and parents and ready to answer any questions we may have. I trust Courthouse Preschool with our most important investments in life, I can't imagine a better place for them to be.
