The administrators fail to create a positive environment the staff. They like to threaten people jobs and this makes teachers and staff uncomfortable. I personally got terminated over something that could have been worked out. I was replaced by an unqualified teacher aid! I loved my students and it too bad their education had to suffer because the administration can't run a school. When the staff is not happy, students are not happy.
Century Academy is a poor school very strict on discipline, however it doesn't work. The kids are very distributive in the classrooms. The school doesn't have very much money so it fines the parents every chance it gets. The school does not focus enough on preparation for the CST's. There's not enough done to make sure students succeed in the classroom and this is a charter! It's suppose to be better then a public school. A lot of boast but no delivery If you live in the area and have to put your kid in this school then it would be a better option then Horace Mann but not by much.
I had a child that has just graduated from thier 2009 she has learned alot and the teachers do care about your child. The are very strick and young children today need that kind of order in thier life. I will recommend this school to anyone
I don't like the school it is no fun and it is really strict. I also do not like the students there they are all loud and rude>
My child attended this school for 7th grade and will be returning for 8th grade. Overall our experince has been a good one. My son's grades has taken a turn for the better, since leaving a public school in Inglewood(not a good school!). I love the discpline and how invloved the teachers are. Although some of the children can be unruly, I think this is a reflection of thier home envoirment and not the school.
Although the efforts are good I had hoped this school would be beneficial to my child. At least that's what the orientation represented. As my child continued at Century Academy it seemed the quality of the school has diminished. The children there can be unruly The teachers there are parents, social workers, disciplinarians. The children do not respect the teachers. The teachers spend more time in the class talking and trying to discipline the kids; than teaching the students who actually came to learn.
so far so good at this school dedicated teachers hands on principals and the staff isnt out to lunch. Very organized and disicpline heavy. My child is safe and learning
I believe that century academy for excellence is the best middle school that I could have sent my child to. the principal is the greatest and dedicate to the children I appreciate her for that.
