Please Sign up here for...   Open House:  Apr. 24th |   2 Champion School projects have been selected as Finalists for the Synopsys Outreach Foundation's Next Breakthrough in Science & Engineering award -- that is 2 out of 8 finalists and hundreds of participants. Champion School had submitted 5 projects for the Synopsys Science Fair. To provide a further perspective on this, of all the participating schools, Champion students represent probably less than 0.1% of the student population. We are very proud of our students and each of our caring and supportive staff. None of this would be possible without them.  |

   Parent Comments:

 

We are deeply grateful for everything this school has done for our 8th grader. Our child started here in fifth grade. Management is very caring, responsive and always gives us time if we have a concern. Our son is now much better in many many ways. In academics, sports, debate, languages and essay writing. Some days they ask the child to spend extra time at school with teachers when attention is needed in a subject or just for home work. They even give children practice for high school placement tests. When they say majority of the work in school, they truly mean it. We wouldn't want it any other way. After spending fours years here, our child is self sufficient, which is vital when a child goes to high school. They have excellent teachers for the demanding curriculum. As an example, our son studied lower level math at his previous school. But now, he comfortably handles Algebra 2 /Trig. We highly recommend this school.

My son has been to Champion school for about 3 yrs now. He's in 2nd grade now. The teaching method and style is very much like Harker. Both my nephew and niece go to Harker in higher grades than my son. some times my family and the Harker kids are amazed that my son learns things that they've not even learnt yet. There's a lot of 1-on-1 teaching and kids are accelerated based on their level. Almost no pressure on parents. Very little homework and no need for parents to stress out with projects, book reports, etc. If you are in a school like challenger or stratford, you need to think about this school as it's much advanced and much less expensive.

"Thank you for doing a wonderful job.  My son Mohit is well adjusted socio-emotionally and is progressing in his academics.  Many parents ask me why I chose Champion School for my child and I tell them: have you read their web page.  My son Mohit is proof that every word of their web-site is true!  Keep up the good work."

My daughter is now in her third year at Champion School (2 year, 3 year, now pre-K). During these years we have observed tremendous progress, both academically and socially. We are very happy with the well rounded academic program (verbal, reading, analytical/math and social skills) at Champion school. We also really appreciate the 1-1 instruction that helped my kid, both, to reach her potential while raising her level of curiosity and enthusiasm to master new things. We are very happy with Champion school and would highly recommend this school to anyone.

My son started Champion School 3 years ago as a 5th grader. Having just immigrated from Russia, he was not able to speak or read English at all.. The school provided some excellent guidance and suggestions on how to immerse him in the English language over the summer break prior to school beginning. . The first year was simply amazing! My son went from not being able to speak or read English at all to participating in debates and making truly amazing strides forward. The second year included more debates and now the third year he's taking two advanced subjects! The caring, supportive and nurturing environment which is constantly associated with Champion School is not merely words, it is reality and it works! I'm truly amazed by what my son has been able to accomplish and by how much the teachers and staff truly care about the students and finding a way to help each one learn at their own pace. Thankyou, thankyou thankyou!.

"Thank you for the personal attention your school provides to Sebastian (preschooler).  We are amazed by his reading skill and writing own name at this age…"
       - Mr. & Mrs. Woo, Parents

Champion school has been like a second home to my kid. I saw an all round development of my son who completed his preschool (PRE-k) here. He learnt to sing, read, write ... overcome his shyness. The one- on- one program, the kids performances, the talent show, the kid-parent parties, have all contributed in the development of my child. My son just loves his teachers. I am amazed by the degree of individual attention the kids get in this school. Every child is made to feel special.

Champion Middle School is a great fit for our 7th Grader.  Java Programming, Debate, Soccer Coaching, Daily Math drills and minimal homework in a small class size setting make for a very stimulating, well rounded and a happy academic environment.  He and we love his new school."                                 - The Saxena Family

"...we were so excited to come across Champion. "My daughter has made amazing progress since she joined Champion school... She loves going to school. I would highly recommend this school."

                   - Maureen Grey, Parent

We are amazed at Sharva’s quick progress both academically and socially.  Since he joined Champion School, his confidence has increased.  He enjoys going to school every day and is eager to meet his teachers and friends.  His teachers are very caring and helpful.  Champion School makes complex things easier for kids.  He is proud of himself, completing all of his wonderful projects.  We highly recommend this school.                                       - The Santhakumar Family

When my daughter started at Champion school, she was very shy. But she was able to adjust very quickly because of the caring teachers and started liking to go to school within a month. The amount of learning she is able to achieve is also amazing. In just a few weeks (after starting preschool), she started to practice phonics on her own and started reading in one month. She just finished pre-kindergarten and is reading at 1st grade level. And all that is done in the school without any homework or much home tutoring. It is safe to say that their way of teaching is very effective and the staff are very caring. Socially my daughter also made many friends in school and is very active in classes

"We visited at least 10 other preschools before we signed up...Oviya has shown high progress academically and socially...Champion is the best school... provides high academics in a very friendly environment with positive disciplinary method. We are very happy and proud that we made the right decision.

"The moment my son, Vincent, entered into Champion Preschool, he instantly fell in love with the school... He has excelled leaps and bounds. We are very proud of him and his new preschool."
          - Jennifer Collado, Parent

"My 3 year old daughter enjoys preschool very much. She is very proud of her newly learnt reading and writing skills. She brings home her art projects and sings all the songs that she has learnt with glee. She is learning through the songs and play. I am very happy with the progress she has made after joining Champion Preschool. Thank you for making her early preschool experience a happy one."

          - Mona Moorkoth, Parent

"My two year old daughter and we love the preschool program at champion school.  I have seen her learn a bunch of good manners from the first day she started school. She loves her teacher and misses her so much while at home. We want to thank her teacher and the school for the love and nurturing environment they provide."
          - Sudarsan and Family

"...we were so excited to come across Champion Preschool. We knew right away that this was the place for our 2 year old son. Since attending Champion, Jacob's verbal and social skills have improved significantly. ...We truly feel that Champion preschool plays a vital role in Jacob's future academic success.  A big thank you to all the loving teachers at Champion School"

This new school is like mini Harker. They specialize in differentiated leaning/1on1 teaching program. There is a test to get in to their elementary school program and it is not easy. If you have a young child, start early from Champion preschool. Average Champion kids are one year ahead of Challenger. No excessive homework. Great extra curricular: Mandarin, Hindi, Spanish to choose from. PE, Soccer, Basketball. Music, Dance, Arts, Debate, Speech, Java, Logo, Robotics... All of these classes happen during school hour, so kids have more time to play after school. It would be nice if the school had more ethnic diversity, but I am sure that will change in a few years. Our child loves going to Champion school and that's what matters in the end. Great school!

We decided to transfer our kids from Challenger to Champion Preschool last year. We researched a lot before we transferred our kids. The Champion Preschool is probably the only school to provide 'differentiated instruction' for preschool age children in the Bay Area. In English and Math, teachers make a customized plan to each student's needs and strengths. Kids are grouped based on their ability. Every child gets one on one session regularly. As a result, all students within a classroom can learn effectively, regardless of differences in ability. Teachers are caring and loving. Our kids are thriving and very happy. They also have a wonderful Music and Art program. They invite a 'real pianist' to play piano every week while kids sing and dance . (At Challenger, they just sing along with CD) Overall it's great school. We highly recommend the Champion School to everyone!

My son completed his kindergarten here and we are extremely happy at the progress he's made. From just knowing phonics, he's able to read extremely well and can spell such hard words that is difficult for my 2nd grade niece who's in a top Private school. His Math skills has also gone up to that of a 2nd grader. I would recommend this school definitely well above Challenger and Stratford. Lot less pressure on parents.

I just love this school. My son is in Pre-K and he is already reading fluently. The teachers are friendly and give lot of individual attention. The principal is very involved in all the activities. It is way ahead of Challenger and Stratford schools.

I love the elementary school. It is very well rounded. My child is in 2nd grade. She is doing extremely well academically, when I compare her to my older child, who went to Stratford. They also have a great sports and arts program.

Excellent Elementary School. The best thing is that I have peace of mind that my 2 sons are in such a caring environment. I can't say enough about the principal's personal attention to every detail. My Kindergartner is reading at a grade 3 level.  He is able to do additions and subtractions with borrow and carry. They are actually doing hands-on science experiments. He is learning Soccer and Basketball. There is music and dance. The most important thing: I don't have to come home and do homework with him. He is learning all this at School. My Stratford and Challenger friends think that that my son must be brilliant. I wish I could give all the credit to my son. When I talk to my friends at Champion School, I realize that virtually all of the parents have a similar experience. The school must get at least some of the credit

I love the middle school. My child is in the 6th grade. He has excelled academically and socially here. Their academics are higher than most other private middle schools, and the best thing is that we did not have to do hours of homework.

  High School:

Champion's high school program is very small and serves only those students whom we have known well from the time they were in Champion's middle school program. Currently, we don't recruit students from other schools. The subset of students that are selected are those who have proven maturity and are expected to benefit from a flexible and/or challenging environment.

We will add more details here when we open up the program to students from other schools.

Existing Champion 8th grade parents are invited to contact us to learn more about the program.

 

 

Elementary / Middle School:

Keys to Champion

Champion's Child Centered Approach Leads to Acceleration in Learning

Well-Rounded, Challenging Program

Champion School offers a broad, challenging curriculum, on par with the best schools in the world.  That however, is not the most important thing.  Any school can offer a challenging curriculum. 

What makes Champion School unique is that Champion elementary and middle school students learn this curriculum in school without excessive homework burden that would otherwise transfer this responsibility to the home.  Champion's Child-centered approach caters to the strengths and needs of each child.  In addition to classroom instruction, a child is provided with 1-on-1 instruction to help him/her perform at potential.  Champion offers more teaching resources per child than virtually any other school in the area.  This Child-centered approach allows each child to be a child and pursue extra-curricular activities or just play and have fun

Champion students perform near the top at nationwide standardized tests such as SAT-10.  Champion students have performed at or near the top in Math and Speech & Debate competitions.

While Champion's academic program is among the best in the world, that's just the beginning.  Champion's focus is the whole child.  Champion fosters each child's academic, creative, critical thinking, social and leadership abilities.  Champion wants its students to be great communicators and be confident in all situations.  Champion strives to provide every child with all the tools necessary to be a leader of tomorrow. 

That's why Champion places so much emphasis on all the non-academic activities.  No matter what path a student takes in life, these skills are life skills and required to be successful in his/her chosen career. 

Note: Starting in the 2013/2014 school year, Hindi will no longer be offered as a 2nd language option.

Achieve to Their Potential

Every elementary and middle school student is provided with the encouragement, support and the resources to perform at their potential throughout the time they are at Champion.

In Middle School Math, for example, while every one is expected to complete Pre-Algebra, Algebra-I and Geometry.  Children who are more advanced in their ability are able to take Algebra II & Trigonometry while a few might even complete Pre-calculus.  That's what child-centered means -- allowing each student to achieve his/her potential.

This is true not only in Math.  It is true in other areas such as: Science and Social Science, as well.

Child-centered Approach

  • Adjust to the strengths, needs,  progress of each child
  • Classroom, small group and 1on1 teaching
  • Outstanding student : teacher ratio
  • Sophisticated Assessment Processes

If we focused on effectiveness of learning by students in school rather than the conventional one size fits all approach to lesson delivery, to the maximum allowable number of students, every school would be a child-centered school.  It has proven to improve the quality of life of the students as well as their families.

elementary and middle school

   Preschool:

Well Rounded, Fun and  Stimulating Program

Champion School offers a well rounded preschool program to nurture academic, creative and social abilities of every preschooler.  The preschool program is hands-on and stimulating.  We strive to make the environment like a 2nd home: comfortable, caring and nurturing.  Preschoolers must enjoy coming to school.  That only happens if there is time for fun, play and socialization.  Only then do they open up to learning.

Preschoolers Achieve Their Maximum Potential

Thanks to it's unique teaching methods, unmatched 1on1 attention, sophisticated assessment processes and a culture of high teacher expectation, Champion preschoolers do extremely well both academically and socially.  For example, in reading, every 3 year preschooler enrolled in our 5 day program learns to read 1-vowel word books.  Every 4 year preschooler enrolled in our 5 day program learns to read 2-vowel word books.  Many preschoolers who have been with us from the time they were 2 years old do even better than our baseline goal.  Some preschoolers are even able to read Chapter Books.  All this is achieved without any pressure on kids or the parents and without making any compromise on a child's play, socialization time.  Kids must be allowed to be kids. 

This is not magic.  This is the power of a Child-centered approach to education.

Child-centered Approach

  • Adjust to the strengths, needs,  progress of each child
  • Classroom, small group and 1on1 teaching
  • Outstanding student : teacher ratio
  • Sophisticated Assessment Processes

If we focused on effectiveness of learning by students in school rather than the conventional one size fits all approach to lesson delivery, to the maximum allowable number of students, every preschool would be a child-centered school.  It has proven to improve the quality of life of the students as well as their families.

Safety, Caring and Nurturing are paramount

  • Highest School Priority:  physical and emotional Safety / Security of every child
  • Heat the food for every child
  • Potty training, if needed
  • Clean spacious, comfortable, beautiful facility
