This teacher said not to send my kids here, that I should turn and run. Thank you, you know who you are.

The ones who are most effective are the ones who have to get extremely firm with their students. It shouldn't have to be that way.

Yes, absolutely, to be as rude, disrespectful, insolent, unkind, physically rough, destructive to property and overall behaving like animals.

See previous comments. So many students here are allowed to get away with insolence, rudeness, foul language, physical roughness, loudness, disrespect to teachers, destruction of school property....I could go on....and nothing is done to remove them from classrooms where teachers are trying to teach and kids are trying to learn.

See my previous comment. Same applies to this category. Students are allowed to hit, push, throw items at, yell at, call names at, and consistently disturb the learning environment of other students. Unbelievable.

First and foremost: UNSAFE!!!! Anyone can walk in and walk out of this building almost any time in the morning and in the afternoon unchecked. THEN: huge class sizes so almost no individual attention. Horribly crowded cafeteria, terrible food. Complete lack of supervision in the hallways during junior high and high school passing periods, lunchtimes, before and after school - pushing, screaming, knocking into others, roughhousing, throwing items. Library one of noisiest ever seen - very few books, no comfortable places to read, no current magazines. Few and small bathrooms for student use. Part of recess areas totally unsupervised. I am a prospective parent who walked in one morning unchecked and got a visitor pass, spent the morning walking around and saw it all. You couldn't pay me ten thousand dollars to send my kids here.

When students are allowed to behave the way they do in the classrooms, in the hallways, in the cafeteria, outside after school, and at athletic events without any consequences whatsoever.....absolutely not. There will have to be a huge overhaul to get these to exist in this school.

Nope - this is a school of have's vs. have-not's at all level and depending on what your last name is, what car you drive and how much money your parents donate to the school determines how you're treated. And the administration does NOTHING. They are the stereotypical charter school that wants to be a private school.

Depends on the teacher, classroom and subject. Sadly, they keep losing the best qualified teachers due to salary issues.

This school values those families with the deepest pocketbooks more than those who chose it because their home district options are failing. The 'sense of community' pertains to the wealthy families. There's a small group of them who have taken to bullying and shaming those who either disagree with them or upset the harmony of their days online, and the school refuses to help. We pulled our child after being a family here for several years; the students (at elementary) are just as cruel as the parents, and if your Mom and Dad write a big enough check, you can get away with anything. This is NOT why we chose the Academy.
