This School Does Not Take The Precautions The should To Keep The Children Safe. They Do Not ID AnyoneWho Picks Up A Child. The After School Programs Are Redicoulous....If YouNeed To Pick Up Your Child Early For An Emergency Or Any Reason At All.....The Teachers Are Not Reachable. The Front Office Clerk Can Be Really Rude. Every Parent ShouldTenFeel That There Children Are Safe In A Great Environment. I Don't Feel That At All!!!!!!

I have 4 kids who have attended and are attending Fenton Charter. A very exceeding school, with great teachers. All of my children exceeded or are exceeding in all aspects. Love, love love this school. Great work Fenton for providing and helping our children to thrive in school and helping us parents to be better parents and advocates for our children.

My school is Fenton Avenue Charter School and I believe this is a great school but does have room for improvement in the curriculum especially since my daughter is a little advanced and usually enjoys her extra time in sports, dance or another recreation. I like the staff and administration especially in the way they express themselves and allow the children to be themselves in a fun and learning environment. I believe they could improve by having more tutors or teachers aides in the classroom to help the students and maybe monitor the students in class where the aid can take the action by observation and see who needs help as some children are shy or don't like to be made fun of if they do not understand.

Charter Fenton has been a great school academically. I love that they keep there room size under 20 kids per class room. Now a days you can get that in public schools.

My daughter has been going to Fenton since Kindergarten. She'll be in second grade next week. I credit this school for her impressive reading and computer skills. Because of this school's great performance, the government provides them with state-of-the-art computer equipment. I'm lucky to have this great, quality school in our neighborhood. It's amazingly free with dedicated and knowledgeable teachers and staff.

This year my third child will attend Fenton. I have great relationships with the teachers and am able to email them and and they call me on my cell if they have concerns or just want to tell me my kids are doing well. The one teacher I didn't agree with I simply changed classrooms for and haven't had any further issues :-)

After having enrolled my son into Fenton Charter, I can honestly say that Fenton posseses the power to educate children. It is a school where children become well rounded individuals. The teachers are all very well prepared and enthusiastic about teaching. Mrs. Sumida's great skills in leadership will continue to develop the schools potential for higher learning.

Fenton provides an awesome foundation for children. My children have all gained wonderful experiences, friendships, and self esteem. Thank you wonderful teachers like Mrs. Williamson, who taught my boys great reading and comprehension skills in kindergarten. Mrs. Arragon and Mrs. Adkinson, who taught my daughter leadership skills, self confidence and self control. Thank you Fenton.
