The biggest mistake in my life was enrolling my child in this school. The teacher act like rejects that are not fully qualified to work in the public school system. If I didn't have to give this school a star to submit this review. Excelsior Charter Academy would get 0 stars.

I just don't know where to begin. The amount of insufficiences and lack of available resources, materials, and advanced education is a disgrace. If your child goes to this school, be aware that they will never be able to get ahead. This school provides the most basic of educations that tyou can get. No honors, accelerated or gifted classes. Most middle schools offer the opportunity to take high school classes to get a head start on obtaining your credits. This school does not. They don't have a before/after care program (as of 2012-2013 school year), no PTA and a very "ghetto" and unprofessional principal (Ms. Ferguson). They accept all of the expelled and indisciplined children from other schools. I can go on and on. Overall choosing this school is like playing Russian Roulette with your child's education...

Excelsior is a latin word meaning higher and always upward which this school personifies in their approach to education. From the administration to the faculty these individuals take it upon themselves to make sure that these students realize the importance of an education day in and day out. These teachers make students wonder, question, criticize, apologize (and mean it) show their work in math and then hide it in english. They make parents see their kids in a new light. These teachers are making a difference. Excelsior Academy is the DEFINITION of a great school and this country could benefit from others like it.
