My overall opinion of this school is the education is poor and if You're looking for real police or fire morals then i suggest not putting your son/daughter through public safety academy. The staff is there weak point. Drama plays a big role in school.
Just like every school, PSA has its shortcomings, but it has always been my experience that the teachers DO care about the cadets and the education they provide them. Any issues I've had I've brought to the attention of the appropriate personnel and I've always felt my concerns and/or suggestions were heard. Every teacher that my son has asked for additional assistance with school work has always made time to help him. PSA is a school of choice and it may not be the right choice for every child and/or parent but for the last four years it's been instrumental in building my son into a respectable young man. I really do believe in what the school stands for and I think that plays a role in why my son believes in the school too. They're not perfect but what school is? We (my husband and I), as parents know that we are responsible for creating a partnership with PSA so that our son can be successful there. 5 stars for the hardworking teachers and staff, principal leadership, and parents all working together to make it about..."WE"!!!
PSA does NOT protect bullies, nor do we condone or tolerate any bullying. All issues of any nature are addressed immediately. We have incredible staff, student, and parent support! PSA ROCKS!
Principles do not know how to interact with children correctly. Education is very low at Public Safety Academy. Principal and other staff do not handle student Issues very well at all. He uniforms is a fake impression of the school.
Education is very poor at Public Safety Academy the staff of "5" discriminate against new comers. It has a server problem with bullying that they truly don't know how to handle. Staff protects students who bully. Staff is behind the bullying.
I have to say I am not very pleased with this school. We sent our son there last year for the 7th grade, we liked uniforms and the focus on public safety. We like charter schools, because we have our youngest in one, and he has done very well. The focus on Police and Fire Fighters is what attracted us to this school, and also how they would teach respect and discipline. Unfortunately they are lacking in the education department, I was amazed how my 3rd grader would have more homework nightly then my, now, 8th grader. Needless to say, we are going to send him to our home school, which has very high test scores.
My child is a 2011 graduate from PSA and has already passed the college entrance exams. I am very happy with the education from PSA.
This school does not adequately prepare students for college. I wish I would have realized the low standards this school requires to get an "A" before sending my child here. Parents, make sure to ask alot of questions before enrolling your child. Example: What is your teacher attrition rate? How many new teachers do you have on staff? Are teachers required to have visable lesson plans.
My daughter is a straight A student at PSA, and I can hardly wait to get her little brother there. Great experiences, great eduation, lessons in real life, learning character and morals....simply the best.
My little Brother atteneds 'PSA', as the students call it, and he has never been happier about going to school. His grades have improved, he has more school sprit, and has improved as an over all person. The school focuses on teaching it students to have character along with the actual education. They do not have P.E. but they do have P.T. which is alot more active. I feel so comfortable sending my little brother to this school, he feels extermly safe in its family atmosphere. The Public Saftey Academy is the most incredible school I have ever seen, I am very greatful that my brother has the opertunity to attend such a speacial school!
i love this school it's small and the classes are small and everything is enclosed it's great
This is a school where unlike other schools the children learn respect, discipline and more important, the ability to be leaders in our society.I think that if all schools could be like PSA we would be truly investing in the success of our children and not just giving lip service to it.
I wish all schools were like Public Safety Academy, the opportunities are endless, the teachers and staff really care about the students. I love this school, the cadets take home more than great academics, they really learn about character and ethics and that is something that is so lost in this society. I would highly recommend this school, you wont be disappointed!! Check the school website and see it for yourself!! WWW.PSASB.US
This is the all time greatest school in the world. There is nothing like it anywhere. It is the perfect place for any highschooler that wants to go into the public safety field.
