The teachers and administration seem to be the bigger bullies than the children. The way that we were treated as adults and parents was bad enough - I can only imagine how these little human beings are being treated. We are their only voice in this school. Be sure that you document all of their work, assignments and discussions because you will need it.
Imagine sending your child to a school where they are expected to dress their best and adhere to uniform policies while their teachers and administration wear jeans, un-ironed khakis and t-shirts/polo shirts EVERYDAY. How can you possibly enforce dress codes to students when teachers are allowed to come as they are. That is the precedent that is set at this school. Mediocre so called leaders that are expected to teach children. To say this school is a disappointment is an understatement. Good luck with getting a response from administration on anything that does not have to do with donations. We removed our child from this school in May 2016 and that is the best thing we could have done. We realized that we had been missing out on so much of the general school system by having our child at this school...things as simple as phone calls about important school updates, weather information, etc. The programs at this school are below standard. Our child was in chorus and we attended one performance that was completely disorganized and chaotic. We really wanted to like this school but after hearing several neighbors and parents freely discuss their dissatisfaction we realized that what we heard all along from their actual experiences were correct. The school is not even close in comparison to other area schools. Our child is now excelling in all areas and we have open communication between their teacher(s) and administration. Don't let the uniforms fool you! Take it from us - even your low performing zone school is better than this charter school. Also, this site needs to be updated to reflect grades K-5...this school no longer offers 6th grade (wonder why?).
There are no leaders...they don't respond...and are not ever present. I wish the city or county would just make an unannounced visit...even though...they cry independent...this school needs to monitored. Someone needs to take ownership and evaluate this school along the same standards that is does the local schools.
I can only co off of my experience with one teacher who displayed a lack of respect and did not respond to emails. The only other teachers that I am aware of are few that my child mentions. I feel bad that one bad apple spoils the bunch.
The same homework is assigned - one math workbook assignment and 1 spelling assignment....however, children are also evaluated on science and social studies....with now homework or anything to support what they are learning.
