West Houston Charter School is getting a new name: Aristoi Classical Academy (ACA). The new name that the school is transitioning to is more reflective of the curriculum and teaching methods at the school. Aristoi Classical Academy, with 307 students, 42 faculty and staff, is located just north of I-10 in Old Katy. At this K â€“ 8 school, the development of community relationships is important.
â€œEducation is about relationships, among students, faculty, administration, and the community,â€ says the Headmaster Reggie Johnson. â€œWhen the relationships are strong, education is effective and the kids benefit the most. They are our future. Wherever relationships are weak or worn thin the childâ€™s education is affected in a bad way.â€
The school has put into practice several programs to enrich the relationships, including: an accessibility requirement for everyone to return emails and phone calls within 24 hours; a weekly coffee with the Headmaster where parents and community are invited; a biannual state of the school address which defines accomplishments, and goals and strategies for the coming year; and a monthly newsletter for news and events.
