 Prerequisite:  

·           K – 5th Grade

The weekday after school hours of 3 to 6 p.m. represents an enormous challenge for children in the United States. More than 70% of children have parents who work outside of the home, leaving 15 million youth unsupervised by adults when school is out. This means that they are 3 times more likely for them to engage in violent crimes, drug use, alcohol & other inappropriate, illegal activities. In addition, the recent budget cuts in schools have resulted in an overload of students in classrooms, & many of the sports, music, public speaking & heritage cultural programs being eliminated & cancelled. This is why it is critical to ensure your child is receiving the necessary additional academic assistance and engaging enrichment activities to continue to develop their mental and physical health, & overall performance.

 

Genius Kids ASAP provide academics, sports, arts & crafts, public speaking, and several other fun, enrichment activities all under one roof. Our unique curriculum motivates our participants to become productive, engaged community members. Our results clearly show that students who attend our programs gain social & academic skills, show improvements in self-esteem, learn respect towards their peers, school & community through daily interaction with positive role models. Our students have shown marked improvement in test scores, many of them skipping grades and winning several local and national competitions. Many of our students have ranked first nationally in global math and chess competitions. Genius Kids student stand out apart wherever they go beaming with confidence and able to attain new levels of academic achievement through our innovative multimedia approach of teaching.

"Quality Care! Quality Education! GK wins hands down in both! Both my boys pretty much grew up there and I cannot think of any other school which offers the kind of education and overall personality development that GK offers. Ms. Rennu is aspirational and continuously strives to provide the best for the kids."

"I do not know what I would do if I had never walked through the doors of Genius Kids when I was searching for a learning center for my son. When I first brought my oldest son to GK, he had been in kindergarten a few weeks and had never attended a formal preschool. He did not know as much academically as he should have when he first started school. He was so behind that he would come home crying that he didn't understand or know as much as the other kids in class. After I enrolled him at GK, he was up to speed halfway through the school year, and ahead of the class by the end of the year. Now he is 7 years old, in second grade and is reading 97 words per minute compared to an average of 72 in his classroom. He is at the top of his class academically - in math, writing, science. When I saw what GK did for my oldest son, I decided to put my youngest son in and it really paid off. My 5 year old son is also at the top of his class and ahead of the game. I couldn't have done it without the GK program especially since I work 50+ hours a week. Both of my boys have been going to Genius Kids for years. The facilities are clean and bright and conveniently located. Ms. Deanna was one of my kids' favorites - she is sweet and nurturing and knowledgeable! She will be sorely missed by us, but all of the teachers at Genius Kids are AWESOME! I can honestly say I have not had a bad experience with any member of their staff - quite the opposite. They are all very friendly and knowledgeable, remember who's mommy I am, are excited to see my kids, and assist in overcoming any challenges that may arise with their learning processes whether it is at their facility or at school. Miss Rennu is great too- very professional, polished, nurturing, understanding. She is prompt and knowledgeable in answering any questions I have, and has a great sense of humor. If you are looking for a great place for your child you can stop looking. Genius Kids truly the best and I am so grateful my kids are with them."
