From My personal experience I can't say one nice thing about the school which is sad. My experience is a horrible one. From beginning to end (long story short time).I am contemplating homeschooling my daughter.
I really thought this school was the right fit for my daughter. She was basically tossed from one place to another with a plan of action that was never put into action. No child should be mistreated under no circumstance! All students should be treated equal and fair. No teacher should ever engage in any boisterous behavior in front of her students towards a parent. ALL parents should be treated with Respect. I have Never disrespected this teacher or anyone at the school for that matter. But was treated in a very unprofessional manner. No one has to take that.
My daughter has always looked forward to going to school but now it has gotten to
the point where my daughter doesnt want to go to school. She cries, she gets irritable, she gets figity and nervous she complains her stomach hurts. My daughter struggles because of her seizures but she tries really hard she has come a long way. She is very affectionate which does not work well with this teacher. This whole experience has been very stressful for my daughter, me and my family. I mean so many things have happened in such a short period of time, and what's disheartening is there is no one there to turn to, no one!
The school doesn't have interest or resources to develop students. The school looks the other way when students regularly sneak away from school and smoke behind Frys. Take a drive there sometime during school and see.
The school has a very good arts program. However, the academic program is lacking. Only about a third of the teachers are actually state certified which is not revealed when you visit the school. When my child attended this school, it was clear that the academic program was lacking. The teachers seem to be people who can't get jobs anywhere else. Generally, there is a lack of enthusiasm and even interest. When I attempted to meet with the principal to have a discussion about my perceptions, she would not make time to meet with me. Thankfully, although there was a little transition time, things are much better at our current high school which is MUCH better at preparing students for college.
Withdrew from the school the minute we could. Transferred from one school to this sorry excuse for a charter and was sorely disappointed. They were going to make me retake classes (putting me a year behind) that I already took. Didn't get into most of the classes I wanted- which was the whole reason we applied. Substitutes were filling in for 4 teachers and nobody knew what they were doing. Administration will make you wait for hours just to talk for 5 mins. Administration is snippy and unfriendly. Every class had a fee and students have to provide practically everything and the teachers blamed it on a low budget. The only teachers that were any good were the musical theatre teacher and ballet teacher. I do not recommend this school to ANYONE. If you want to be angry 99% of the time, pay fees at any chance they can get, and learn absolutely nothing then this is the school for you.
