About Champion school
Champion School, located in San Jose, California, is founded on a philosophy that a balanced comprehensive, world-class education need not be stressful. Champion students tend to be among the happiest and most confident kids anywhere. Champion school's teaching processes/methods rely on small engaging classes, lots of practice in school, approximately one and half hours of outdoor time every day, free one-on-one and/or small group extra help. These highly supportive methods not only result in a lot less homework but also leads to both deeper level of understanding of key concepts as well as acceleration in levels of learning. For example, it is not uncommon for a first grader to be fully proficient in long-division with decimals, for a second grader to be able to solve simple single variable equations, or an eighth-grader to take courses such as Calculus, AP Computer Science, AP Economics or Biology without getting bogged down with tons of homework. Again, this is achieved without much homework. These highly effective methods also free up time for various co-curricular activities that are crucial in expanding a child's intellectual capacity. Activities such as performing arts, coaching in sports, public speaking, debate, mathletics, computer science to name a few. Not many other schools offers a more comprehensive co-curricular program to each and every one of its students. Champion School students have won dozens of awards regional and national competitions in Math, STEM, Public Speaking, Debate, Computer Science... On a per capita basis, Champion students are among the highest award-winning students in the Bay Area or the US. Additionally, due to the low levels of homework, Champion students have the freedom to pursue their individual passions. Various Champion School students are nationally ranked in Math, Chess, Dance, Tennis, Gymnastics, Fencing, Swimming, etc. Champion School is all about freeing up the kids to identify their passions, live up to their potential and be happy and confident.
