Kennesaw Charter Science & Math Academy
Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

The teachers are just glorified baby sitters. We had to teach the material every night at home, because the teacher wasn't in the classroom enough throughout the day to teach the class. They watched a lot of movies at school, though.

The on-going attitude of teachers and staff is "close enough is good enough." Every event is thrown together at the last minute, and comes across disorganized, awkward, and clumsy.

Respect is not displayed from the staff, how can it be taught to the students?

I've regularly heard my child's teacher yelling at and belittling other students. My child also repeats while at home what the teacher says, and she is just plain mean to the students.

The teachers and administrators aren't upfront and honest. They claim to be a STEM school but they aren't. They are trying to become one. They say physical activity is a core part of their day, it is not. They claim to not send children home with more than 25 minutes of homework- it is hours each night. The list goes on and on.

The teachers seem bitter and angry, staff is disengaged. It feels like the entire administration is simply doing the bare minimum to keep their jobs.

There is nothing about this school that resembles a STEM school, which is why we originally went there. Teachers are bitter and grouchy, the principal is dishonest and ineffective, and the vice principal seems depressed to be at work. This felt like a day long of babysitting, but then we had to homeschool our kids each night when we picked them up. Go anywhere else, there is no reason to attend here.

Put on a School House Rock movie and leave you child alone to watch it. You've just recreated a typical day at this school. To be effective, teachers need to be present in the room and engaged with the students. They are neither.

Amount of homework: Too much

Posted May 29, 2016

High in quantity, lacking in quality. The homework load is ridiculous, especially for the young age of our child. When this concern was brought up, the principal said they can't have that much homework because her policy is no more than 15 min a night. This is one of many examples of her dishonesty. The homework load is not only excessive, it is beyond the child's ability and requires several hours a night of the parents involvement. The issue is the school expects the parents to teach the kids at home, and then those skills will simply be tested at school.

Mediocrity is the best way to describe this school. They put forth the bare minimum in all their events, and it shows. Special events, school activities and PTO events always seem to be thrown together at the last minute and were embarrassing to attend. When that is how the staff and teachers approach their jobs, they can't pass along attributes they themselves don't posses.
