Mavericks High School is a mess! Many teachers are not professionally certified in their subjects. As a matter of fact some teachers assistants at the school have professional certification over the actual classroom teachers. Plus the school is a profit charter school so the money they receive is from the amount of students they have enrolled. That means that they will take any student no matter what and keep that student in the school, whether the student is learning or not. The students have no respect, the teachers do not know what they are doing and administration is horrible. Save you and your child the harm and enroll them in a different school. Mavericks is going to crash and burn because you have a bunch of business/sales people trying to run a school. This doesn't work because the intentions of administrators and management is just to keep bringing students in for profit. It is like a revolving door. Teachers are constantly fired. Students do not have stability because a new teacher is hired every month! How can you have consistency and good management when you have a new teacher and new students "revolving" every couple months. It's very sad and disheartening.
This charter school is "for-profit" which means it exist purely to make money off studetns through public funding. Pay close attention to the credentials of the teachers and staff. They do not match what a tradtional public high school can afford to pay, nor provde equal benefits. Therefore they get much less experienced faculty and eventual high turnover...
