My daughter attended for 7th & 8th grade. 7th grade she did great and the teachers were amazing. The beginning of her 8th grade year (2011-2012) the administration cut teachers salary by 20% and a lot of the really good teachers left. Because school had already started, in my opinion, some very sub standard teachers were hired. Communication, and the lack there of, was a huge issue. Several parents complained to the principal about the new teachers inability to teach algebra and nothing was done. We are spending a lot of money this summer to make sure our child is ready for high school because she definitely was not made ready by this school. If you have a bright child who has ambition, look elsewhere. If your child just needs to get by and do the minimum, this is your school.
this is a great school for my child. she have acheived in so much things.
Antelope View charter school is a great school. It helps you on increasing your skills. It is a very intelligent school. It helps you learn more and keep your grades up. This school helps you get smarter. It teaches you a lot of new things. It is very fun at Antelope View charter school.
I've had experience in this school, and I don't care what other people think, but this school is great. It has some strict policies, but that's what makes a school strong. The assemblies are not just boring, sitting there and doing nothing, I enjoy every assembly, and they actually give meaning, unlike some other schools. Also, even though there is no lunch, the school day ends at 12:20 p.m. anyway, so that's fine. The pricipal is not like those evil or mean principals like in the movies, he's very nice. The school staff is nice, especially Mr. Shira, in the computer lab, I believe that he loves kids. The schedule is easy to remember, after the most of 4 days being there. It's the most uncomplicated schedule anyone could have. The teachers go along with the kids and are not too strict that they're mean. This school is a good choice!
This school is kinda boring. It has some boring classes and i think its the teachers job to it easier and funnier. Also we should have some celebrations!
Since Ive been at this school ive been very disappointed in how the school is ran. Its suppose to be a charter school but they dont run that way. There is no one-on-one time and you cant work at your own pace. So if you're thinking about putting your child in this school, i would recommend thinking about another alternative!
This is my first year at Antelope View, and it is so much better than my last high school. Most of the classes are interesting and the office staff are very nice. Plus it is really nice having Friday's off.
Antelope View is not all that great. I believe the school was much better when it was an independent study school. The school should no longer be called a charter school because students cannot work at their own pace, and don't have the chance anymore to create their own learning environment. I'm a student currently attending this school, and I wouldn't recommend this charter school to anyone! You're better off going to a charter school where their teaching method is really independent studies.
Music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities are practically non-existent here. The classes they do have are not that good either. So if you do end up going here use your budget and take a class elsewhere.
I have a teenage daughter at antelope view. Since management changed I have been very disappointed.
The best thing about Antelope Home Charter School is that the staff really works with the students to make sure they are challenged and acheiving their full potential. Even students such as mine who have some limitations when it comes to education are made to feel as if they are the most important and smartest kids around. Because the students do their work at home, there is no problem with those who are intolerent when it comes to different learning or life styles.
AVCS has a wonderful staff that develops a standard based curriculum that helps my children become better learners, productive workers, effective communicators, and technology users. The weekly meetings with the teacher helps keep my children on task and challenges them to do their best. The resources available to use for extra curricular studies are enough to encourage education outside the 'three R'. The best part, for our family of four children attending AVCS, is that each child has a personal education goal that is both challenging and rewarding. Having a scantron test once a semester keeps all partners in the educational triangle abreast of the students' needs. We can then choose the right curriculum for what areas the student may be lacking.
