Content is interesting and challenging in all my daughter's classes. Discipline is rarely a problem. Strong bonds are formed between parents as a result of the parental involvement requirement. I love the fact that students who apply for admission know that uniforms are required through high school, and they are willing to wear them in order to attend the school, knowing they will get a better education than they might in other area schools.
This school is a really good school. Its academic level is very high and it is an A school. Its safety rate is the best. Its extracurricular programs are great and include band, art drama, etc. It has many school programs to fit everyone's needs. Parent involvement is very high because they need a specific amount of volunteer hours.
This is a wonderful school, it is also an A school and it shows in the hard work of the instructors and the curiculum. If you are in this area, this is the school for your child.
I think that the teachers here in CS charter are very advanced and do try to give it their all to all the students.
Excellent environment. Small student/teacher ratio, unique programs such as the ACE Academy. My child will be certified in Oracle upon graduation, with an internship during senior year. Education with experience! Good athletic program in competition with local private 3A schools. Uniforms are great for students and parents. Volunteering is a must, but good for all concerned. Caring environment, challenging coursework - my child loves the school (started in 6th grade and is now a sophomore). 4 star rating
CSCS is a school for the academically motivated. Take full advantage of the teachers' expertise in their fields. Most teachers are former professionals in their respective teaching fields. If you are personally motivated to succeed, you will succeed at CSCHS. As a developing school, CSCS does not have enough extracurricular activities and their AP Passing rate is very low but if you have an idea for a club, they are open to suggestions. Teachers will accomodate an extracurricular if there is enough interest. If you want to pass APs, you must have the personal discipline and motivation to. 95% of the graduating high school students attend state universities after graduation but the school does not help you at all when getting into college. University Breakdown~1%UF, 3% FSU, 70% UCF, 10% USF/FGCU/UT/UNF 16% BCC/FAU. If you want something done, get it done yourself. They aren't good at record-keeping or transcript requests.
I have 2 children attending the school. They do not like it because they feel it is too 'strict'. I like it because it is very structured. Academics could be more enhanced and I feel some of the teachers need to go back to school! Discipline should be more fair amongst all students as well as teachers.
My son attended this school for one year and we pulled him out to go back into the public system. I found the teachers and principal to be less than caring or enthusiastic, I never got a response in any less than 5 days and with 2-3 attempts to contact them at any time, the volunteer policy is a good idea as it helps keep parents involved in the school. Also, I found there were an unusually high number of fights and problems that went on and a couple of times my son was beaten up in the parking lot with teachers within eye sight..or one would assume so since it was during dismissal.
I am the parent of a former student and I would recommend this school to any parent. This school should be looked at by the county as an example a school system that achieves what all schools should strive to do...educate, discipline and instill a sense of responsibility into our children.
This school is great! My children feel safe and are challenged academically. Most teachers are very involved with the students and are concerned with their progress. I can email them at any time and get a response within hours. They make learning less of a chore and more exciting.
I am a student at the school, and I personally feel that our Principal doesn't care for the students' feedback on how we enjoy the place and doesn't ask what we would like to happen. Now with a parking grage and 4 story office buildings being built in front of the place, they are going to have to bus the kids to parks (again) for PE. Also, with some things the school is very unorganized, and they do anything to make themselves look good. They want us to respect our school when they don't even take the consideration to ask how we would like some things to be.
The charter school system would do well if they were to use this school and it's policies as the role model for all charter schools !
Overall I think its a great school, yet I feel some of the policies on volunteering, as not all parents or children , have the time or funds to participate, should be changed and some of the diciplinarian policies should also be changed.
