Teachers do NOT support students. This has been the worst educational experience I have ever encountered. I was too upset to write a comprehensive review earlier this year, and it seems like I still do not feel up to re-hashing all the negative things that have happened. I empathize with the student in our household, and believe he was robbed of a middle school education by attending this school. The teachers pick and choose which students they want to focus their attention and energy on. They do not help all youth equally. The teacher I had legitimately had cultural competency issues where she seemed borderline prejudiced. This is a joke of a school. A circus. I will widely tell my friends and colleagues to avoid this place.
They ABSOLUTELY DO NOT. They will be quick to put your child in their Family Academic Support and from there it's all about points. They through a timeframe on your child and if it is not met you will get points. If you complete what they say to complete, you get points. They don't care if your child still does not understand. It's about what they say to complete when they say to complete it. If you reach 10 (elementary) your child is automatically withdrawn from the school. 10 points can be accumulated very quickly, from just about anything. GEORGIA CYBER ACADEMY DOES NOT SUPPORT STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DIFFERENCES, AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nope. Not that!
How with the amount of students per teacher? How when all they're concerned about is the GA milestones not if a child is learning...? They barely communicate with the parents. How could they teach leadership? Again, that is the responsibility of the parents. They won't dare put that kind of time into child.
Not. At. All.
They force a child to be at a particular point at a particular time, regardless to if that child understands what they are learning or have learned completely. It's all for the Ga Milestones Test. Test scores for grants...and more donations from the parents. Nothing like integrity, compassion, and respect, are present at this school for a child to learn. That's something that has to be taught and learned at home.
It's hit or miss. It really depends on what teacher you have and how they are as an individual and teacher. Some don't communicate at all. Some communicate a little, some a lot! They technically do what they're supposed to and nothing more. Unless you just have a teacher who loves what she does and will go that extra mile because of it.
Most of the work is really left up to the parent. That is if you want your child to learn and get the most of being in GCA...(think about that for minute...)
They don't give the children homework. They have a class connect with over 100 kids in one class, tell them which lesson to mark complete or to complete on the OLS, or to got to monthly instructional calendar and do what's for that day. They won't go over or check anything from the previous day. It's just on to the next. Whether you understand it or not
