This School is a One of a Kind School! The Front Office Staff is the friendliest and most professional I've ever come across. Ms. Selina is the Sweetest Secretary you could ever meet, Always greeting parents and students with a Beautiful Smile and in a Very Courteous Manner. The teachers are also Great at this school, I believe the API Scores talks for themselves. This is truly a "School of Choice" Thank you Guidance Charter School for Being TOP NOTCH!
The Guidance Charter School has adopted common core curriculum this year and one year a head of the plan, the school spent over $ 300,000 purchasing textbooks to K-12 students at the two campuses. we are one of the schools in our are adopting the common core. Kamal Al-khatib Executive Director
This school is not about the students!! I've never seen so much media about the director and so little about the kids. What a joke, I will be dis-enrolling my child.
I Love That They Have Arabic As A Mandatory Class Knowing More Than One Language Benefits The Kids In The Long Run, Although It Does Seem Like They Show Favoritism To Some Of The Staffs Kids And The Co Founders Kids Ill Make Sure To Speak My Mind This Year About This Problem Overall The Teachers Care And The Anti-Bullying Concept Of It Im Thankful For.
I think others should know that this school is not up to par. The director does not have the best interest of the students at heart. My son was a student there and I was not happy with the conditions in which he was under as a student. There is no shade for the students to have PE, nor is there any real playground so to speak. The education is so, so....I would not recommend this school to anyone looking for a smaller, private type feel . The school really is a joke, and the classrooms are too small. My son is at a public school now and is getting all his education needs met and the culture is what I had growing up in the Antelope Valley.
The Attendance Clerk Mrs. Selina is the best employee in the school. Thanks for all you do Mrs. Selina you are much appreciated by the parents.
This Schools is a HOAX, they are not into making sure that the Student is in there best intrest, instead they are busy worried about the next fund raiser, I think there are people that live on site, what kind of school is this? There Principal Mrs.Keene is probably the worst person there to get a hold of to discuss issues, They are always trying to have you see someone else, so she does not have to deal with it. I think Charter School should be closed, and reopen the other Elementry down the block.
This school is absolutely terrible! Do NOT send your kids to this school! The administration is horrible and does not follow state laws!
Actually look at the API and CST test scores here on Greatschools.org....they aren't that great....and they only got a great schools score of 4 out of 10........not good.......the school may have potential, but it"s not as great as some claim it to be....it has a long way to go......
I love GCS. I moved my child from a PSD school that was so big that my child was lost in the shuffle. She struggles in some subjects and was not receiving any help. At GCS her teachers volunteer their own time after school to tutor her. My only major complaint is that GCS added another 134 students this year. I just hope that they don't forget that a small student population is part of what makes them great.
Well... there are not cameras in the classrooms just on the playground and in the cafeteria, not very odd. As for the strict rules, many schools in the area have behavior issues that Guidance does not, maybe because of the rules? I am glad the children are protected. However, the website does need to be updated and more information added but this issue does not bother me at all. The way a website looks is in now ay an indication of the quality of the education the students recieve.
The Guidance Charter School continues to amaze me. The school continues to boast small class sizes, a high API, and a very safe and secure campus. The staff is amazing and all work together for a bright future for our children...an all around outstanding school!
Me gusta esta escuela por la seguridad que tiene esta sercas de mi casa y por que tiene muy buenas calificasiones y la dedicacion de las maestras gracias por aceptar a mis ninos
