From day one Mrs. Debowski was wonderful. I was so tired of all of the issues with regular high schools. Here, my daughter had one main teacher, who was involved, called whenever there was anything to share (good or bad) and really cared about my child's education, well-being and future. I would highly recommend for anyone whose child is struggling with bullying, overwhelmed by the social aspects of high school or too many classes/ teachers/ administrators/ counselors/etc., to go to this school. Your child should be self-motivated and responsible to be successful in this program, since most of the classes are independent study.

Run away! This is not an "over glorified homeschool". That insults homeschoolers. Audeo, Altus and Charter School of San Diego are ALL THE SAME SCHOOLS!!! Think about it. Kids are supposed to learn from the book at their own pace, do the work, and get out fast. The teachers are there as guides. WRONG!!! There are no single subject credentialed instructors. There are no instructors familiar with the details of any lesson plan at the time the student asks a question. For the two "part-time" multiple subject credentialed teachers there are usually 3 "aides" who apparently are "highly qualified" parents.This might work if they had the proper curriculum. But they are using INCOMPLETE and OUTDATED traditional school curriculum. The lesson guides are so old that the teachers can't do anything but make photocopies of old photocopies. The curriculum there was meant for a portion to be presented by a teacher and the students to have online access, neither of which is happening. Their teachers are really great at double speak, and would make very good marketing and sales reps for an Enron type company. This school is just a way for someone to scam taxpayers and skim off education funding.

I had doubts about the light work load and apparent lack of difficulty of the ind study program but my kid scored off the charts on all the state standardized tests so I guess it must be OK; he's already smart anyway just won't do anything. Anyway it was the only school that would take him after he got kicked out for selling drugs so I am very happy with it; the teachers seem very nice although there apparently isn't actually much interaction....

I echo the sentiments of the March 18th post. As a former employee, I will attest to many of these concerns(and have stated as such to the Charter office at San Diego City schools and in a published article outlining many of the problems). On top of the very average curriculum and a number of policies carried out by the administration that are 100% detrimental to students achievement, there is an atmosphere of fear at the school that make it very hard for good teachers to be both the professionals they need to be and the advocates of kids that I feel is required. This is a school that needs to have serious light shone into all aspects of its management. There is a lot of good in the program worth salvaging. With ethical and caring administrators, CSSD might pull itself out of this lowly ranking.

Let me just say that in my 11 years of schooling I have never seen a school more unproductive, more uncaring, and more unfocused than the Charter School of San Diego. I was a student at the Woodman branch for 2 years. I learned absolutely nothing. The school teaches through nothing more than elementary school designed lesson guides, and their focus is on everything that doesn't relate to college. I write this letter as a way of communicating to people out there that this school should undergo a major academic enlightenment, or completely shut down. I am no longer a student at this school (thank God), I was lucky enough to get accepted into a more academically prestigious charter school called Health Sciences High and Middle College. I hope someone reads this letter and is inspired to change the Charter School of San Diego system for the best. I would not recommend this school to anyone. As a closing, let me just say that the teachers at the Charter School of San Diego are fraudulent and don't care about the students at all.

My son attends The Charter School of San Diego. Before he started attending this school my son hated school. He was lost with all of his classes. The Charter school of San Diego's model of giving one or two classes at a time, and having wonderful motivating teachers, has really changed my son's belief in himself. My son's teacher, Mr. Armstrong, took him from wanting to dropout to being a successful college student. This school gets five stars.

My daughter was never really motivated in school, even as a young child. Due to a learning disability, I transferred her to Charter and it was the best thing we ever did. Small class size and 2 teachers were just what she needed to get that 'spark'. Children learn differently, and I feel if it wasn't for Charter, she would have dropped out. Now she is a Senior with straight A's.

Charter School of San Diego has a rigorous college preparatory curriculum and high expectations of teachers. The students have the scheduling flexibility to begin to pursue their careers without sacrificing their academic work. Our family is grateful for the careful attention to students and the excellent assistance students receive.

The Charter School of San Diego has been a complete life savor for me. If it wasn't for the Charter School of San Diego and the teachers here I probably wouldn't be in school today.. This school truelly has helped me succeed in life. I am very thankful for everyone here.

My two boys went to The Charter School at 2 different campuses. I found both their teachers to be excellent,motivating and helpful with college applications.

This school is not meant for intelligent students, regardless of what the school preaches! The teachers at my daughters site are more interested in socializing rather then being attentive to the needs of the student. The teacher does not keep me updated on my daughters at all, I have to constantly track the teacher down (because I am always greeted by the answering machine rather than a person!) The curriculum is a joke, it is not even remotely challenging. When my daughter asked about university preparation and requirements, she was told to look it up online! I am in the process of enrolling my daughters at a different school.

I gave this rating simply because of Mr. Q at the Worthington Campus. He loves his job and it shows through his students, my daughter has never been motivated in her entire school career, but with his support she has changed to the 100th power. She was never barred from the SD school district, like some of the other student that attend charter, but w/ Mr. Q it wouldn't matter anyways. I can't say that all the teachers at charter share his motivation and understanding of thier students, but he definitely does. If the day comes that a person asks my daughter which one of your teachers most influenced you it would be Mr. Q w/o a doubt.

My 2 girls went/go to this school. The older one found it prepared her for college very well. They can't just flunk a subject, they have to keep at it until they master it! They have 1 teacher who knows them and works with them, instead of 6 who change every semester. They were able to concentrate on subjects, instead of having 6 projects due the same day. Some kids mess up at the regular school, come to Charter and learn, then go back to walk graduation with their friends--that's one reason the graduation rate is low.

I went to this school for a little while in 9th grade. My teacher Ms Lewis was very supportive and nice. The thing I did not like is that you are not allowed to talk to the other kids so it isnt social, and you cant really get any help on the topic you are learning. You get to come in whatever days and whatever time which is convenient for kids with jobs. Overall I liked regular school better but charter is good too.

Excellent teachers at the site my child attends. Motivates the student and contacts the parent promptly and keeps me up to date. Very pleased with progress there.

For some this school might now work, but for us it was a godsend. Our child was bright and advanced but medical problems prevented him from excelling in regular school. These teachers understood him (not so with Muirlands!) and are working with him to help him excel.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
