Our new High School opened last August. Being brand new, we had our challenges and we faced them head on. As a result, we achieved a six year WASC accreditation and the prestigious Civic Learning Award of Merit! Our students are superstars! We help them to achieve by providing them with individualized plans for success! This year we offer 3 pathways, online accredited courses and individual student tablets. We are on the right track for success! The best is yet to come.
I have five. (5) children now at both campuses; and can't say enough GREAT things about this school. I am saddened to see the negative comments by this parent of a Senior; first, I know she only had ONE child and the fact that the school went out of their way to ensure these students had the same experience and activities as the large schools in the community. These students had courses, in which there were only 6 students. The school provides the "community" and responsiveness of a private school for FREE. It is a true blessing to have this school in our community!!! This year every student will have a FREE tablet and ALL online books! The teachers are best if the best and I am grateful for their service!!! My children will be there (2) of them for the next 10 years!!!!
I have 2 students that went to this School last year and it was so bad like one of ther other parents that made a comment . About it being unorganized so true I had a son that just graduated there in May and it was so bad they graduated with the 8th Graders and the whole time the director of the school was talking about how good this school is , And What there getting next year hmmm that's what we were suppose to get this pass year and didn't get .. And he was so concerned about the mayor being there it was so very sad that my son didn't have a great last year of higih school .. Took my other son out of this school .. And they let all there security go and there only keeping 1 because they spent to much money on the K9 dog Rita .. So think twice on sending your child here next year .
Well it is no so bad in all ,but it is not what they say in their webside, all is about a bussiness, it is to small and old and the education is like other commun school ...happy not to have my kids there any more.
I'm so upset with myself for enrolling my kids to this school. They don't have nothing organize. The school does let you know any progress on your kid, no progress reports or report cards for that matter. We moved from a little town in Missouri we only had one school there from K-!2 so when i heard about guidance its seem the same as are town. But like i said worst mistake ever. My son a senior and he had to take the cahsee test twice because school doesn't have the results my guess is that they lost the test because like I said nothing is organized in that school. I have two more students that would had been attending that school, but now I will be enrolling them to a diffrent School. Overall I DONT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. DONT EVEN DESERVE ONE STAR but I have to pick one because it won't let me post.
Best High School choice in the Antelope Valley, they have medical Academy, Art, TV and Media Academy, Music and Dance Art Academy, CIF sports like Soccer, Basketball, volleyball, baseball, swimming, track , cross country and the School is WASC accredited.
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!
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 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!
