Our child could not be happier with PACS (Phoenix Advantage Charter School). The teachers and staff are outstanding. This is a solid community and safe environment. Our child is receiving an excellent education here.

Develops character: Strongly agree

PACS develops honesty, integrity, and fairness in its students by molding all teachers to incorporate a solid classroom management plan and inspire students by establishing a positive atmosphere of rigor, safety, organization, accountability, and tailored behavior plans to keep students on track.

I am a new teacher at Phoenix Advantage and I must say — there is an unwavering progression that will one day show all the naysayers they were wrong with their perspective. There has been a total change in curriculum, expectations of excellence in all staff, and a great repore among teachers that I heard was not as excellent before as it is now. With that being said — teachers are on board together to do everything in our power to focus on teaching skills and learning techniques that our students will use for the rest of their lives. I am proud to be an eagle and I see great things for PACS in the future.

I am a staff member at this school and it has been making stides towards fixing past mistakes. Mr. Perez has come into a tough situation and has already turned a very poor school culture into a very pleasing learning environment. After coming to a school with great kids eager to learn PACS is on the right direction to becoming what it promises to be. If it can budget, set its goals right then it will be successful. The teachers are great, the kids are great, and Mr. Perez is pulling it up and next year it will be something great!

More like Phoenix Disadvantage Charter School. In this academic year alone, there are 5 experienced, highly qualified teachers left the school before the winter break (no joke). "World-class content"? "Private school quality"? "Proven academic results"? Some of the language arts textbooks are outdated by 10 years which is why the scores on the students' standardized tests were so low. If you're a parent who looks at the school based on the brochure or the website, don't. It's false advertising.

Wonderful, caring staff with small class sizes. Each student will benefit with more one on one attention from teachers. Great school!!!

Mi opinion sobre esta escuela es de que los maestros y personal educativo soy muy amables tanto con los padres de familia como con los alumnos,

PACS is a caring community of professionals doing their best to benefit students. There is a fairly diverse student population working together to strive for success. The new sports programs are an excellent addition to the school climate. The theatre program offers a uniqe opportunity for students to find a love for performance and to utilize their creative and public speaking talents. The Paragon curriculum offers a contiued emphasis on the humaities and history that is so often lacking, as other schools cut programs to focus only on reading and math. Though there is always room for improvement, the staff is working hard to see that everything is done to ensure that each student has a positve and productive educational experience here at PACS.

Phoenix Advantage Charter School proves they are determined to be instrumental in providing the pathway to have all children reach their highest potential. They do not just hope for higher test scores, they are proactive in reaching their goals because they know how important it is for the students to do well as they pursue higher academic interests. ' The students learn a wide spread of fascinating historical themes through Paragon, and the kids love it. They are getting an intense education that not many schools in Phoenix offer.
