Good Morning Tyron. Hope your are keeping well and safe. The best decision I ever made was to move Gary to Odyssey Academy. The huge improvement and impact that has been made is fantastic. It's so nice to fetch him from school and to hear that he had a great day. I would like to say a huge thank you to you and the teachers for the remarkable work that you do at the school. Best decision I ever made was moving him to Odyssey. Gary actually loves school. The positive impact that you and your teachers have made in his live is fantastic. Keep up the good work. Once again I cannot say thank you enough. Wish there were more teachers around that were as passionate about teaching and the kids wellbeing like those at Odyssey.

"Dear Tyron and staff at Odyssey Academy. I would just like to take the time to say thank you for all you have done during this time of great hardship in all our lives. We know you have gone above and beyond what we as parents could have asked for. Mary Jane has been in your school now for three and a half years. We have seen such a great change in her she is happy and eager to go see her fellow pupils and teacher at school. No more excuse about going to school anymore. We have also seen improvement in her marks and more willingness to do her work. We would not have been able to have any of these changes without the great team at Odyssey Academy. Without the support we have received with all Mary Janes Health and emotional troubles we would have been overwhelmed and we would not have gotten this support it at another school. So, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts you have change my daughter’s life and my families for the better. When we though she would get lost in a school system you helped us were I do not think another school could have. Thank you for the last three and a half years. We are looking forward to the next five years with the Odyssey Academy."

"Hi Tyron, I just want to say thank you so much for helping me regarding my son and affording me the opportunity for him to attend your amazing school. I have seen such a positive change in Ethan, his marks are great and for the first time he says he feels as though he is accepted as himself and fits right in amongst his peers...he does not feel like an outcast at all, in fact he feels so normal at Odyssey. His anxiety has decreased considerably and for the first time in all his school years he actually enjoys and looks forward to going to school. For this I am so grateful and it's all because of you. I cannot explain the joy and comfort I have now seeing my son happy and so content. So thank you and your amazing team so much."

"My son struggled both academically and emotionally for years at a ‘highly esteemed school’. It broke my heart to see him fighting so hard. Since he has been at Odyssey Academy his world has absolutely changed! He’s gone from bottom of the class to top in some subjects and his EQ (Emotional Quotient) has improved dramatically! I highly recommend Odyssey Academy to any parent. Thank you to Tyron Fuchsloch and your teaching team!!"

“I am very happy with Odyssey, what you are doing for the kids is fantastic. I have seen Gemma grow in confidence day by day. She is able to resolve problems she has at school by talking to her teachers and these have all been resolved. She is most happy about the support that she gets from her teachers especially Carla and Dominique. She feels more calm in the relaxed and comfortable environment you have created. With the small classes and attention given to each student she feels that she is receiving a great education. She is very happy at the school.”

“As mentioned many times before, we are extremely happy with the way Odyssey Academy's teachers are helping our child and the effort and support they put into teaching him and explaining where he struggles. One important part is the communication between us parents and the teachers. We love the fact that we are able to chat with each and every one of them about anything that concerns us, either about our child and his improvement or simply about a project or assignment that has to be done, or just a simple "hello" and "thank you for everything you do for my child". The teachers are always there for us as parents too, always friendly and happy to assist with anything. That is very important for us and we appreciate that very much. Angelo loves all his teachers and is most happy with "the way they teach". (That was Angelo's answer). He finds it a lot easier to understand then what he's experienced before and he feels comfortable to ask anything. He likes the fact that any kind of bullying in the school is not tolerated and it's taken care off as soon as it happens. Overall he is a happy child and loves going to school and learn.”

“I would like to thank and compliment Tyron and his wonderful staff at Odyssey Academy. My niece was really struggling last year in a mainstream public school and did not get desirable results and she was extremely unhappy. It was soon after she started at Odyssey that her life took a very positive turn. She settle in quickly and soon she was flourishing. With the patience and help of your staff at Odyssey she got great results and to our surprise she did extremely well and received 4 awards at the year-end prize-giving. She has her confidence back and is a happy young lady again who is excited to take on grade 11 at Odyssey. Thank you again, my niece, her Mother and I really appreciate all you and Odyssey have done and we look forward to another great year!”

“I have a different child because of your school. I haven’t seen Erin this happy in years and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. She has a new found confidence and it shows every day.”

“The fact that there are small classes which gives Barry and Rachel the chance to have one on one attention if needed. The teachers are friendly and professional and go the extra mile to give Barry and Rachel the education they need, they never feel intimidated to approach the teachers. Barry and Rachel are happy with the fact that the teachers explain the work and if needs be will explain until they understand. The atmosphere that is created is one of nurturing and safety which makes it easy to concentrate and learn to the best of their ability. Thank you so much for being so good to Barry and Rachel. Tyron and all his teachers are amazing and the kids have grown so much since they have been at your school.”

“It is my absolute pleasure to thank Candice Vorster and the school for everything that she has done for Matteo. I know that he is not without his own faults, but the difference she has made in this little boy’s life is nothing short of remarkable. To see your child have his confidence grow is something I can never thank her enough for. With his speech being delayed, he was so withdrawn and now he’s just showing us more and more each day. It is so special to see and I thank you once again for your dedication and perseverance with him. I believe that all apples on the tree will ripen, but they do not all ripen at the same time and he just needed a little more time and support. He is now coming home almost every day with news about his school day and is more willing to try and it’s all because he now has the need to show us all that he can succeed. I would like to thank Candice once again for everything she is doing for him and not giving up on him, we are truly blessed to have found a school like Odyssey.”

“Tayla has only been at Odyssey for a short while, but I can say that time she has been with you, I am very happy with everything, I love the open communication between the Tyron, teachers and parents, I am extremely happy with the work load given, i.e. projects and also that the children do not get homework during exams, it really does allow more time for them to study. I cannot say that I am unhappy with anything, our short time with Odyssey has truly been a blessing. Best decision I have made, Tayla is loving it. Tayla is a completely different child, since she started with you, she is comfortable and content, but most of all, happy, and that is all that matters. She loves the teachers, she loves Tyron, and she is really doing well I think considering that she has only just started there. I only hear good stories when I get home, no crying, no insecurity, no “stress”, not at all, she has not had anything negative to say about anything, she actually enjoys talking about her day.”

“This year was not an easy one for Dylan. Dominique the centre manager, yourself and the rest of your team never gave up on him and he has passed, for this we are eternally grateful. In his short time with you, he has passed his matric, he has also matured up, calmed down a lot and become a young man at your school. Thank you and your team for helping him find focus and direction.”

“Keagan has never been as happy as he is now at any other school. I am so relieved that we found a school like Odyssey for him. My child has shown a big improvement with actually wanting to go to school and enjoying it. Even though he gets reprimanded when called for he still enjoys school which he has never done before. He is treated as an individual and not a number. My child has shown a big improvement with actually wanting to go to school and enjoying it.
