Imagine Charter School Of Broward5

The after care program at Imagine Charter School at Broward is based on the school year. The fee is $1800 per year based on 180 school days and it is broken down into 10 equal monthly payments. The payment information is posted clearly in our enrollment packet that all parents must sign. In addition, we are always available by phone, email or in person from 7am to 6pm for any questions or concerns. I hope this clarifies the fees for after care.
We have been at the school sine day 1. We felt this was a school that we could voice our opinion, be involved and help the school we have chosen to continue to grow which we did not find in the A school which we are zoned for. We have not been disappointed. Our children have excelled and love the school. Yes, there are always changes and growth at the school which come with uncharted waters but staying in communication with all of their teachers and the principal which we have done sine the beginning has proven to make our Imagine experience great. Being a Charter school they rely heavily on parent involvement so If you are interested in being involved in your child's education which they believe is the cornerstone to success in school, and like a small environment then this is the school for you!
Wonderful school! Our children have attended for several years and we've had a great experience with the teachers, faculty and staff. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a quality educational experience.
The staff at this school was ONCE excellent. Now you have a horrible principal who is only concerned with saving money to fatten her pockets at the end of the year. You have teachers who are inexperienced. The talented teachers have moved to vetter schools. The PTO are just snobs. God forbid you disagree with anyone there, your child will be blacklisted and emotionally abused!! The damage that this principal and staff have caused my children is so ridiculous.
My children have been going to this school for 4 years and we totally love it here. The teachers that have taught my children have been on top of their game. I am pleased as a parent that we found this school. My children qre in 2nd grade and 3rd grade. Thank you Imagne!
I have had my child at this school for years and am finally at the point where I will be pulling him out next year. When we started at the school, there was an amazing principle who knew every child and the parents that went with him/her. It was a welcoming and caring environment. Since they fired him and hired the new principle, it has taken a nose dive. While I have found her to be accessible, it's pretty much a useless meeting. I have kept him there because, for the most part, the teachers seem to care. That being said, most of the good teachers have left and been replaced with inexperienced teachers that have no clue how to communicate with the kids. When I expressed those concerns with the principle, I was given a laundry list of what's wrong with my child and am now dealing with him being singled out. Most of the parents I talk to have the same concerns, but are too afraid to say anything...now I see why. Communication is horrible and the office is a mess. My son went home with a friend last week and I had never called the school to let them know. They didn't even know he had left! We are looking for a new school because I will not put him through this again.
I have been reading some of the reviews on here, and I am not sure what school those unhappy people go to. This school is wonderful. My child has been here since it opened. There have been changes since the previous administration, but only for the better. My child is in 4th grade, and excels in academics. I believe that this school has greatly impact my child's life for the better. There is a real family feeling there. The staff is always welcoming and helps with any concerns I may have. My child's teachers are always communicating with the parents with assignments, projects and tests. Imagine is a wonderful place to send your children.
We have been part of the Imagine Charter School at Broward community since its second year. Our children's teachers are top notch! Many teachers at this school are pursuing either secondary training or higher level degrees. Since the change in office staff last year, the front office runs smoothly and is very well organized. The principal is always willing to speak with parents. When I ve spoken with her regarding any issue, she has been understanding and respectful. School communication is sent home consistently via detailed e-mail every week; which is very convenient. Overall, this is an excellent school with highly qualified teachers and administration/staff. Also, congratulations to Imagine Charter School at Broward for receiving an A rating from the State of Florida for the second year in a row!!
