  • Our family has been at Radiance for the last 5 years. We have had 2 sons graduate with excellent grades and a book full of life long memories and friends. From football to basketball to life long friendships...our boys will always remember Radiance and their experiences there. This year we have one attending and he is excited to return, From the parents perspective, we like the smaller classroom population, the fact that parents are strongly encouraged to be active participants in their child's education and the rigorous curriculm that is presented. The best part all of this at no cost, attending Radiance is like attending any other neighborhood district school without the massive population. We look forward to another successful year and watching our last son makes his memories. GO LIONS!!!

  • Hey this school is BAD! And not bad as in bad but bad as in good! our football team is undefeated and were gonna be champs this year! The teachers are cool and nice which isn't found very often. The principal is awesome and if you don't go here you're definitely missing out on a big family!

  • I do not understand if your school is a charter/public school that it matters how much you make before your child can get any education. Now we have to worry if we make to much money before a child can go to any school to get any education. What do we tell the kids why they can't go to your school? Sorry because we make to much money.I thought any schools should have their best interest of the child's education rather their parents where rich,poor or barely making ends meet. I may be wrong by thinking it should be first come and then the waiting list and no money involve for the kids to get any education.So can you please explain to me why does money have to be involve before are kids can go to your school to get an education?
