Royal Oak School Closings

I've been reading about the school closings in Royal Oak for some time now, and I wanted to discuss other options for parents searching for alternatives to send their children. I've been fortunate enough to be associated with The Japhet School in Madison Heights. Japhet is founded on the principles of integrating strong character development programs with excellent academics. I urge anyone who is looking for another option to consider The Japhet School.

What I find ironic about these postings is that the worst kind of scam-spam resonded to the original Japhet School Spam.
I'd rather send my 2 kids to Royal Oak Schools than to one of the many Madison Heights districts or private institutions.
Leave Royal Oakers alone...

Unfortunately, we tried Japhet School. The "school" is simply a business, more interested in money than your children and their education.
The school is older (60s 70s), with outdated computers, materials and methods.
We were very disappointed in Japhet and I would not recommend them to anyone.
It costs several thousand a year to send your child to Japhet for 4 days a week, half days and the education vs. play time is completely unbalanced. There is far too much play time in the pre-k and kindergarten classes. I had to supplement my child with math and reading as they just were not teaching him enough.
It also seemed like when the wind blew, the school was closed.
When you hold the school accountable, and ask questions as to why there is not more reading taught, or math or more time spent learning and less time playing - there is a lot of shoulder shrugging and awkward smiling but no answers to your questions.
Like I stated above, it's a business. Thousands in tuition from several children, yet the school and it's equipment look like it is from the 1980's.
Does anyone even remember when the last time IBM sold a desk top computer?
I'd say more, but I really get tired and angry when talking about the disappointment Japhet brought to my family.
Save your money, and don't waste your child's precious time.
