I wrote a review a few months ago and I would like to just reiterate that this school is terrible. This school almost held my son back in KINDERGARTEN - he had an F in Language Arts and he has known his letters and how to spell since he was 2-3 yrs old... I knew something was up. He is attending Villas elementary and has all A's and one B. My son had a substitute teacher for 4 months because they cannot retain teachers. If you want your child to get a good education - take him or her out of Bonita Springs Charter asap.

I have attended BSCS since kindergarten and let me just say-this school is the worst.The staff is rude and honestly dont care about the students.The teachers will lie when you are written up saying stuff just to get you in further trouble.In first grade the teacher i had continuously yelled at me and belittled me,causing me stress and i hated going.in third grade my teacher made me cry every day because of the pressure she put me under everyday.in fourth i had anxiety attacks daily.in fifth grade i was picked on by the teacher and she was mean and i hated school..no one makes it fun to learn.in sixth grade it was terrible..In 7th it got a little better but the teachers were always rude and didnt care about us.eighth grade is worse that you could've imagined...glad to get out to be honest. don't send your children here..

This school is terrible, staff is rude.. Art Teacher is rude, both the P.E teachers too! High turn around with teachers, Don't be surprised if your child spends most of the year with a sub or teachers aide because they cannot keep employees. Not to mention they are completely unorganized. I would not recommend this school to ANYONE! Put your child either in private or find a good public because this school is not the way to go. The aftercare director is a total b*&ch and it worries me that my child has to spend the next few months at this school.

I attended BSCS when for 5 years when I was in Kindergarten through Fifth grade. This school was the worst educational experience I've had. I was in the gifted program since 3rd grade and all I remember is how scared other students and I were of Ms. Tracy. Ms. Tracy has no good qualities of a good principal. When I was in fifth grade, my teacher told us to empty our desks and clean up the room. In the middle of our cleaning, Ms. Tracy bursts into the door, screaming at all of us of how we are a disgrace to the school for having a filthy room. She screamed at my best friend for not sitting at a "proper desk" since the teacher put her at a table, since it was easier for her. My younger brother went to BSCS from kindergarten to 1st grade. Since he had dyslexia and ADHD, the school was supposed to help him academically, since he's always needed help. My mother always got papers for the meetings and she attended, but nothing was ever done for him. I was surprised to find out that this is an A+ school...

My kids have been going here for 3 1/2 years and its getting progressively worse! Ms. Tracy was disliked and uninvolved. Ms. Carroll is proving to be worse! Absolutely no communication this year to the parents and are made to feel belittled when issues are brought to her attention! Soooooo disappointed!

Our daughter has been in BSCS for the past year and has shown a major behaviorial and learning improvement in all subjects. She is social, adheres to discipline and standards, and has learned to read and write beautifully. BSCS teachers and principal keep the families and parents informed. We are very pleased.

As a student at bonita springs charter school, i came into the school during fourth grade and fifth. during those years, the teachers were very excellent at teaching the students, as i do say so myself. But when i came to middle school 6th through 8th......it was horrible! 6th grade, was okay. I didn't learn to much only in geography. but when it came to 7th grade. everything was a mess. throughout the year, i had gone through about 5 math teachers. i didn't learn one thing in math class. during eighth grade. i went through two math teachers once again. all i can say is that bscs is not the best school out there. being a student there for five years, ms. tracy only cared about the dress code and how the students acted. i was surprised that bscs was an A+ school, considering the fact that i and most of the students i knew never did our homework.

I have 3 children that go to charter, and 1 that is stuck at Bonita Middle. My 3 at charter are in elementary and middle.I have had my oldest there 7 years, and I must say that they are great at the teaching aspect of school.They do great projects with the kids,the teachers are fantastic, and when my middle one needed help with math and reading they provided it and she is doing better as far as the teachers and programs go its good. We pay for trips,but they got to go to great places ( i.e bush gardens,universal,the kennedy space center)Yes it cost money but the 5th grade trip was 4 days 3 night,they went to the capitol,the supreme court,the museum,the space center,for 280,and that included bus, hotel and food!My children are very happy there,but I must say it is run like a prison,the fear that they put in those kids is absurd. Iam happy for the great education, (my one at bonita middle has a hard time that is a terrible school!) but I do feel Ms.tracy does not do a good job relating to the kids.There have been MANY complaints about her over the years my kids have gone there. But NOTHING will be done. U can't love everything about a school this one's good far out weighs the bad!

My kids had some good teachers in elem school. There is almost no gifted program (though they say there is). I have pulled my 2 youngest children, in the process of moving the middleschooler. I should have removed him after 6th grade when almost the entire staff was turned over. The school spends far more time on 'discipline' than in education. Students are subject to turning out their pockets with no suspicion from teachers, backpacks are routinely searched (even after last years clear see through mandated backpacks!) Principle runs the school like her own little kingdom. Don't bother voiceing your concerns, they will be dismissed by the commandant, I mean pricipal. There is almost no recourse, you can't actually speak to anyone at CSUSA. Forget everything the web says, no 'individual student plans', little tech in classrooms, I found nothing 'cooperative' about it.

My family is attending the school for our 6th year. Overall, I am happy with the education of my children. However, I am EXTREMELY concerned about the teacher turn-over rate and do not understand why it continues to happen year after year. With a new charter school down the road as competition, we can not afford to lose good teachers and/or families. I hope CSUSA and BSCS is looking closely into this very concerning issue.

While this school prides themselves on 'no bullying', I cannot give them credit for it. There is a lot of bullying and cruelty going on in this school according to the many kids who are bullied. The children don't feel comfortable reporting a bully for fear of being bullied more and being made fun of. This has been an ongoing issue for many kids I know of including my own. Too bad they can't put all the bullies in one class and all the nice respectful kids in another. School days would be much easier on the kids in that case. I like their curriculum in the school and the teachers seem to be fine. The best teacher in the elementary school is probably Ms. Dekle in K. Everyone loves her so good luck in getting into her class!

I have 4 children that attend this school. They love it and their teachers. They are excelling. I have understood that there has been some turn over in the middle school and I think it is an opportunity for our adminstration to take advantage. There is a much larger selection of qualified teachers with layoffs at the public schools...to our advantage and note we had no layoffs or reductions in programs during the year. We are AN A+ School for a reason...We love our school

Let me start by saying that the 2008-2009 middle school teachers were great! I am concerned and saddened that the majority of staff has either been let go or left to find a 'better place' to work. When I called to find out why certain staff members were still listed on the web page when they no longer worked there ( all of the ESE staff, the 6th grade language arts teachers, all but one of the 8th grade teachers) I got no answer that made sense. 'We are in the process of fixing that.' Many of these teachers have been gone since June or before. Talk about a lack of communication. I spoke with a few returning teachers and even they were upset because so many great teachers were let go for reasons not related to teaching abilities. The staff turnover at BSCS is ridiculous!

This school is a fine school if your child 'fits in the box' of the norm. If your child needs any extra help or attention, don't expect to get it. Apparently they don't have the resources to provide it, or it is just too much out of their way to get they help the student might need. I have made the mistake of believing that BSCS would do what they said they would do for my child only to be disapointed by them one too many times. -They have occasional extra curricular activities if you pay for it. Parents are no longer welcome to volunteer in the classrooms, and its very difficult to communicate with the teacher - you are at their mercy if they decide to return your email or phone call. There is way too much homework. The facilities are very nice, clean and secure.

As a former teacher at BSCS (I left of my own accord, by the way--I wasn't fired), I must say that those teachers who say that BSCS is a great school are either working in the elementary school (which from all I could tell was a much different, happier place than the middle school) or else are completely clueless and/or have been duped by the money-grubbing corporation that is Charter Schools USA--'Putting Money First'. Let me speak to the problems of the middle school, as that is where I have had first-hand experience: the principal fosters a culture of fear in this part of the school, where students are made to feel more afraid of getting a referral (i.e., a detention) for not wearing a belt or having the appropriate hair color than failing a class. Priorities are all out of whack in this school and charter school company in general.

My child is active in sports at BSCS, there have been 'cut-backs' for 2008. I have noticed other schools fund and participate in after school sports. Nicer uniforms, providing bus transportation, pep rallies to get other students involved etc. I am very disappointed in BSCS and the 'lackluster' attitude shown towards sports. I understand there have been mandated cutbacks, however, last year the environment towards sports was the same as this year. Kids have very few options at the school even when they do participate

My children have been attending BSCS since they first opened in the 3 small buildings. My youngest has been there since Kindergarten and is in 6th grade now. The sixth grade team is absolutely wonderful! She will tell you that all of her classes and teachers are her favorites! The atmosphere is safe, positive and academically focused while still providing opportunties for social development. My oldest was a student at BSCS for 6 years and is now a freshman in High School. She is in all Honors classes and has been recognized as a Rising Sunshine State Scholar by the State of Florida because of her high FCAT scores in math and science - thanks to the education she received at BSCS. Her positive educational experience helped her prepare for a wonderful high school experience. As for those wishing to have the former Principal return - I wholeheartedly DISAGREE!

I currently teach and coach at BSCS. I have first-hand knowledge of athletics at the school. Let me make this as clear as possible. The athletic budget for each school year at BSCS is minimal compared to district schools. While I find this frustrating to say the least, teachers who coach at the school must deal with that reality. The athletic director (A.D.) has gone above and beyond to make the current athletic program what it is today. Whether you think that is below average or not, if it wasn't for the A.D.'s efforts, the athletic program would be a miserable representation of the school. The A.D. has put together numerous fundraisers to get the school new uniforms, equipment for sports, has made arrangements for the school to use YMCA and Bonita Rec department to sponsor usage of their fields/courts. Please understand the effort before you criticize.

My child attended kindergarten at BSCS in '06 - '07. One thing after another happened during that year. My child attended the after care program & managed to escape out of the EXIT DOOR, unable to get back inside. He was found roaming around the parking. I brought it to Ms. Tracy's attention, even researched alarms or ways to prevent this from happening again. Nothing was done to my knowledge...Needless to say, I pulled him from aftercare. We relocated last school year and my child attended Gateway Charter. Not one problem the entire school year occurred! We're back in Bonita and back at BSCS...I hope this year's better then what we've experienced in the past-We'll see...

the school is going down hill fast and the corporation isn't focusing on the problems. It is sad because the former administation cared so much and this one does not. Remember that a schools moral comes from the top. The principal is never at functions or even at school for that matter. The kids all know she doesn't care about them. Why was the other principal not brought back before the school goes down hill?

My daughter has been going to bscs for the last year and a half and i am extremely unhappy with several things. There are 20 to 25 students in the k-2 classes to one teacher and no aide, no help. That is a lot of 5 and 6 year olds for any person, let alone trying to teach them a very advanced curriculum. So, what this boils down to is that if your child is not a fast learner, or needs a little bit more explanation of some things, they fall behind and no one is there to help them understand. They also state that there is 10 minutes of homework per night (for 1st graders) that the teachers say that the students should be able to complete with no help, which is absurd. It's easily 45 minutes a night. Are you listening bscs? You need more teachers and more help!

BSCS is a very unorganized school. The food is unedable, the uniform policy is all the administrators seem to care about. The new principal in my opinion is not running the school with care. I believe this is not a good school and my child will definately not be attending next year. Teachers only care about diciplin for things that should not be taken action for. This effects the learning environment in many ways and do not expect individual attention for a parent or a student. most work at this school has been brought up by us the parents. i feel the administration is rediculous and it is a horrible school. i reccomend not to go to BSCS.

I highly recommend Bonita Springs Charter School. This is my daughter's 4th year at the school (entering 3rd grade) and my son is just beginning Kindergarten there. We have been very pleased with the education my daughter has received and her teachers have all been excellent and very nurturing. They all encouraged her to move at her own accelerated pace. Whenever we have had a concern, the teachers and administration were helpul in finding a solution. The 'specials' are excellent and we appreciate that language is taught beginning in Kindergarten. The curriculum is also outstanding and the full-time gifted classes are a big plus. Happy parents!

We moved to Florida a little over a year ago. My oldest daughter had been home schooled up north but we decided to put her in regular school down here. We were very impressed with BSCS at the beginning of the school year. As with all schools problems arise. We were very upset when her favorite teacher left in the middle of the year and we were never informed why. We are not happy with the current administration and feel the school is run more as a corporation, which it is, than a school. We have sent our daughter back this year as well as a second daughter in kdg. We hope with enough parents involved the administration problems can be rectified.

Do not expect individual attention for your children at this Charter School, as the teachers have low moral, and the communications between all levels of this school leave much to be desired. My children were bored, and teachers cannot devote themselves to the needs of the child as they are overwhelmed with administrative duties and problems with the admin. On the positive side, the school is clean and has curb appeal!

We had to take our children out of this school because of lack of communication with the administration. The level of parent involvement has dropped tremendously because of the closed door policy they are starting to have. Very poorly run school.

Was a great school for a few years. As soon as the school earned it's A+ rating, the principal stopped acting like she cared about students, parents and staff.she got what she wanted. I felt like staff moral went down, and that carried over to the students. When our favorite teacher left, we decided to go somewhere else. It's sad to see the downfall of BSCS after it was off to such a powerful start.

My sons both love BSCS. The teachers take a personal interest in making sure that the children are getting the individual instruction they need. The administration cares about what is best for each student. Parent involvement is very high. The only concern I have is that some parents seem to want to run the school and try to second guess the administration. The administration is strong and making great choices for the school, which did very well with FCAT testing.

Having been a teacher here, I am surprised at the number of positive reviews, but perhaps it was the grade level. They were experienced, but not well versed in recent teaching methods such as cooperative and differentitaed learning. They emphasized the FCAT and generally teach to the test. Their technology and media center were sorely lacking and reading resources were not challenging. There is little for advanced students.

We have been with BSCS since it's first year in the fall of 2002. There have been bumps in the road but not unexpected for a new school. The academics are great, majority of teachers wonderful and dedicated. We are a volunteer driven school with a required 20 hours for the first child and ten for each additional child. This is a public school and open to all so there is no tuition required. My only complaints would be the turnover of teachers(many of whom are great) and the poor communication between the parents and the administration.

Awesome school! We have been very pleased with our two sons' education. One is now in 6th and one is in K this year. The 5th & 6th year programs are very well thought out & he is learning at a very rapid pace. His teachers have all been excellent! We had an issue with only one of them, but as soon as several parents had the same problem, she did not return after winter break. Very efficient at fixing a real problem! K moves very quickly and he learns a lot(way too much homework for K though.) Planning is great, discipline is great, response to a problem is great, uniforms are great, principal is great. Only things...Needs more gifted classes and clubs, is behind the other public schools in those areas. Will miss BSCS when we move! (PS...it is free, but just like private!)

Parent involvement is high. Teachers are wonderful and the academics top notch. However, the office administration is severely lacking. The response time to return emails was over a week from the current principal. She was unprepared for scheduled meeting about a bully issue. Did not know my name, child's name or reason why I was there. She did not make any observations in the classroom, playground or lunchroom prior to meeting scheduled a week in advance. Kept using her radio to call others while in meeting. After 5 minutes handed me off to someone else who made promises and has not delivered. Will be transferring child to another school due to lack of confidence in office administration and the inability to handle bully situations effectively.

The school 'looks nice' because it is a brand new school. However, the Principle, P. Franco has it 'her way or the highway' approach. She runs the school more like a business than caring about the children/parents/eduacation. I withdrew my child and switched to a much better school . The only pro I can come up with - they have a full uniform policy. The main con to the school (besides Franco being there)is the library/media center - maybe 100 books in there?

My son is in the fourth grade at BSCS. His teacher there is excellent. He has done very well in her class this year. The facility is beautiful but, lacks some essential qualities. My child only has P.E. one day a week for 30 minutes. There is no onsite cafeteria, therefore, the lunches are brought in from an outside source and are usually served cold. My son brings his lunch because the food is no good. Also, the parents are required to volunteer for 20 hours every year and we have multiple fund raisers monthly. This becomes draining. There is little transportation provided. Be prepared to take your child to and from school and wait in very long lines. Teacher/parent involvement at the school is good. The uniform company they used has given bad service and it was hard to get required items on time. No extracurriclar activities.

I am very pleased with the education my child is receiving at BSCS. The teachers really care about the children. It is a challenging curriculum that keeps the kids wanting for more knowledge. Ihave never been to a function where the principal was not there. She makes some difficult decisions but like them or not they are ALWAYS made with the childrens best interest at heart.

Don't pay attention to the 'C' grade --this is a great school but new. The initial group of students who transferred from other Lee Schools included many who were having problems learning there. Give BSCS a couple years to work with them and you'll see those FCAT scores go up, up, up (actually yearly improvement is the best in the county already).

This school, albeit new, has alot to offer the discerning parent. Small classes, student uniforms, teachers with advanced credentials, expanded curriculum, manditory volunteering by parents, better discipline practices, greater humanities choices, are just a few of the obvious benefits.

My children have been enrolled in both private & public schools in Lee County. After much research, I feel that we have found an exceptional educational environment for our children in Bonita Springs Charter. We couldnt be happier with our teachers and the parental support the school receives is what makes the Charter School concept thrive. My kids love going to school there, and we are very proud to be a part of the Bonita Springs Charter School as it grows and thrives in Bonita Springs. Jill Lane

This is an ambitious new school off to a fast start in fulfilling its vision of providing the most disciplined, well-rounded, and complete K-8 (and soon high school) educational experience in Southwest Florida. Uniforms, art, music, and spanish at every grade level, a full range of extracurricular activities, parents who care enough to be involved, and a principal who does everything it takes to make sure each student is a winner make this the area's best school after only 1 year in temporary quarters and half a year in permanent facilities!
