Today, Prisma had my typically math-averse daughter working on her math assessments with motivation and dedication! Something I have failed to accomplish myself in several years of homeschooling. Additionally, I can already see her confidence growing. Our family cannot be more pleased.
We are so impressed with Prisma. Daniella is so excited to learn and collaborate with her new friends. She wakes up every morning ready for school and eager to find out what the day will bring, and I can see her personality blossoming. We love that we can see the quotes from her discussions with her coach...it really helps us gain an insight into what she is learning. Dani is so motivated to progress in her math learning now that she can go at her own pace and we are very excited to see what she will accomplish. Thank you for everything... you guys are truly taking the worry out of homeschooling!
Prisma is the most supportive learning program I’ve ever been in. The teachers are the most kind teachers I’ve ever met!
Prisma is WAY better than all of my other options, and WAY more fun. I️ like the independence. In elementary school, they are basically telling you how to think. I️ also love the flexibility, and how you can grow.
When we recently asked Zoe about her experience so far with Prisma, she said “I really like Prisma because they encourage me to speak my mind. I really feel like I can have a voice.” This compared to other schools where “I only get to talk if I’m called on, and that’s hardly ever.” To hear this is HUGE for us. As parents of 2 daughters, our goal is to raise 2 thoughtful and independent women who find confidence in their respective voices.
It has been a true joy for us to listen in on his conversations and hear how he's working with others and excited to get the work done. One of his initial concerns was that because it was digital, he wouldn't make any friends. His favorite thing at dinner the other day was that "I made two friends already!" On the very first day, he told me that he loved that his teacher was so accessible. He said, "I called her and she actually picked up! AND she gave me just enough info to do what I needed WITHOUT giving the answer away!!!!" I am not exaggerating the number of exclamation points in his excitement at realizing that his learning coach cared and was there for him.
I have been so incredibly impressed with Prisma so far. I was excited about the model when I first read about it; implementation has exceeded my high expectations so far. Every minute they spend in both synchronous and asynchronous work seems meaningful and engaging. Ben is being challenged academically and personally in so many ways. I'm already seeing him grow in how he organizes and manages his time and takes ownership of his learning. I'm also seeing him step up as a leader in ways that are surprising and wonderful. I have listened in on many of the afternoon sessions and love hearing the substantive conversations that are happening and the way the coaches are skillfully building community among the learners. You're all doing an amazing job! Thank you for your hard work!
The attention and care for the kids is so clear and just exudes from the screen. It is so clear that there is a connection being formed—a bond between the kids and the coaches.
Prisma is the best school ever!
Prisma challenges me like no other school I've attended. It has a super friendly and safe environment.
Gabby has been very happy with her first couple days—and went to sleep last night saying “I cannot wait for school tomorrow!” I think that’s a first.
You have found the absolutely perfect way to make online learning work. The combination of synchronous time, engaging hands on projects, interesting academic content, stellar technology, fun group activities, etc. works beautifully. We couldn’t be more pleased.
I have made a lot of new friends and I'm learning new things that I usually wouldn't learn in my regular school.
I love Prisma! Thank you for making this wonderful school!!
It's much more welcoming and I feel much more comfortable and happy with Prisma than with a public school.
The kids mold the curriculum as much as the teachers.
It’s so amazing to be in an environment where everyone is so passionate about education and providing opportunities for these kids to excel, and exposing them to cutting edge ideas & technology. We weren’t feeling that at our son's public school and it’s been the most refreshing change.
Mey loves Prisma and she misses Prisma on weekends. I see her flourishing; her confidence, communication skills, the way She empathizes in the family... Such a beautiful transformation!
It’s been a huge win for our son to be in the book club. In the past we’ve unfortunately always needed to stay on him to read a book or to finish a book, most of the time I’ve had to sit with him to read and make sure it’s done. This is the first time Will has started and finished a book solo and LOVED it. We were floored that he did this himself and also could engage in conversation with us about what happened throughout the book. I read it separately from him to make sure he was paying attention, but he absolutely was engaged and can’t wait to read the next book. This was seriously a miracle. I wasn’t sure if I would need to sit with him for the years to come so I have so much hope after this that it will not be needed!
I am proud of how I learned to learn again; before my intrinsic motivation was gone and I did not feel that I needed to learn but now it’s back and I love learning again.
We were so touched during Expo Day when the students rallied around one of their peers who was having a difficult time trying to present her project. In the thick of learning they seem to be in such a positive and encouraging atmosphere which was just amazing to witness.
I love Prisma. It is a great school and it teaches you life skills and not just boring subjects. It is also interactive and almost like a family.
My kids love it - it’s that simple. I love the part-time & flexible nature that allows us to homeschool in our own way while including your excellent program in the morning.
Because Prisma is the best school in the world.
Ben told me the other day that he finally felt challenged! He's always enjoyed school but he's never expressed that he felt challenged. It has been a huge concern of ours and I had resigned myself to just limping through his education trying to supplement and make the best of it. So, thank you!
I am very proud of my work and how it turned out; the city proposal I wrote shattered my expectations of myself. I would say that this is my best and favorite project I have ever done for school.
I don't want to go to any other school.
Prisma is my favorite school ever.
Prisma is a totally awesome school.
Prisma allows me to voice my opinion on topics that public schools usually don't let us talk about and they let me work at my own pace which is the best thing about Prisma because before they always told me to slow down and wait up for the other students but now I am free to go ahead to bigger things.
Because it's fun, and I get to learn about so many new things. I also like getting to use and learn how to use many new websites, apps and more!
We just love the excitement and passion that the coaches and everyone at Prisma has for teaching our son. There is such an overwhelmingly positive vibe that is spilling onto our child and making him excited to learn too. We love the technology he is learning about and he's being exposed to, and the compassion that we've witnessed amongst the students on Expo Day. It's made public school feel stale so to speak. It's just very forward thinking and we feel like we are doing a world of good for our son by giving him this opportunity.
I love that it’s so flexible and personalized and that the tasks are so creative.
I really enjoy being at Prisma, and it brings me sooooo much joy!
