Super welcoming environment. I have two kids at the school and enjoy spending lots of time volunteering to help benefit the school and their individual education. With a 20 hour volunteer requirement for 1 child and 30 hour volunteer requirement for multiple children, I found that I fulfilled my annual requirement before the first month of school was complete. Of course that won't stop me from helping out more. I truly enjoy assisting the incredible teaching staff in any way I can. Every face that works in the building is smiling and friendly. I have enjoyed several years at CCAS, and look forward to many more!

My son finished kindergarten at CCAS & is starting first grade there this week. We could not have asked for a better experience so far! His teacher was amazing & challenged him academically. He ended kindergarten reading on a second grade level. Not to mention, he loves school! As far as volunteering, I'm not sure why other commenters had trouble & said that opportunities were nonexistent. That was not the case for us. The opportunities are there. From helping with morning or afternoon car line, helping the front office & the specials teachers, being a lunchroom helper, helping with your child's teacher. Multiple times throughout I helped in my son's classroom & yes, during the school day. Then there are the after school clubs & more opportunities there. For parents who cannot be there during the school day, there are chances for volunteering in the evenings with spirit nights, blood drives, book fairs & many other events throughout the year. I find the school to be very organized. Information is communicated mainly by email. We receive a week newsletter by email, I know to expect it & look out for it to stay informed. There is also a parents Facebook page that posts all official school information. There have been times that the front office has gladly given me certain forms that I was unable to print out. The uniform policy has been a non issue. I am actually very grateful to not be buying back to school clothes right now. My son really only wears his uniform 3 days a week. One day is PE & Fridays are jeans day. CCAS has exceeded our expectations so far & we are looking forward to another wonderful school year!!

Fantastic school! So much to love! The teachers, admin. & staff truly care about each and every student. There is a wonderful gifted program and the special needs children have so many amazing resources available for them. The individualized learning program is very unique. The science lab, Spanish, art, band, orchestra, computer lab, vocal & instrumental and PE are some of specials offered. There is a dedicated volunteer page so you can see all the ways to volunteer and there is plenty to do! Kudos to CCA for being environmentally responsible and not sending to much paper home it is so much more efficient to view it online. There is free after school tutoring in math and reading for those that really need it. We have been there since the school opened in the Fall of 2010 and we still love it!

Disappointing environment. This was our son's first year. We had high hopes for the school given everything we were told on the tour especially the parent involvement. We found out shortly thereafter school started that the administration lied. The parent involvement is nonexistent. When you walk into the school you are not greeted in a friendly manner. In fact if you want an institution or prison this is probably the school for you. When you visit the school you will see what I mean. There are other charter schools in the area and we are going to look into those. The school should be closed. It is very unfriendly and The administration needs to be let go and some new thoughts and ideas need to be welcomed. Administration will actually deny you seeing your child during school time.

We have attended CCA a since the school opened its doors. We fought so hard to have a better education option for our children and though the first couple of years were bumpy, they were still great. Concerns were listened to and changes were often made accordingly. However, as the school has expanded things have changed. It's just like any other public school and the teachers are being stretched so thin by all the extra (unnecessary) paperwork they have to do. Good teachers are leaving the school in droves and most don't seem to be happy to be there. Additionally, with all we give to the school...supplies, time (mandatory for continued attendance), fund raising...it's never enough. Homework and school forms are not sent home but instead emailed for the parents to print. No big deal for some, but huge for homes who may not have access to a computer or printer in their home. After 5 years at CCA, this year will be our last unless there is a big change. If the school your children should attend is deplorable, by all means go to CCA, your child will get a good education, but if the school they would attend is good, I wouldn't make the change to CCA.

I also have heard great reviews about the school however, I agree with the other parent in the latter comment , true parent involvement Seems to truly be an illusion. Every volunteer event is made so that parents stay clear of insructional time, meaning coming in the building during school hours is highly dislike, at least it feels based in the unhappy faces of many of the staff. I do think there is a true warmth lacking from this school, I can give this opinion based on my experience with other public and private schools my children have attended . Some parents have fear of speaking out for change in fear of losing their child spot . I would like to note that I if change never occurred there would never be charter school in the first place. Hopefully the school will warm up, and open its doors more to true parent involvement . On a postive note having options for after school help is wonderful for the students who need it . I just think the school can rise to the next level if open parent involvement was allowed.

Wonderful Experience!! My son has attended since they opened the doors and every year there is more reasons I'm glad we switched.. The teachers are top notch and the principle is THE BEST! I wish they would build the High School!!!

We love this school! My daughter has attended since kindergarten and will continue to 8th grade. We are so pleased with the passing of the charter amendment. Now the school is able to expand with a brand new 30 class addition and new recreation field and play ground. I love that volunteer time is required. It allows me to be directly involved in my child's education. Helping a teacher with cut outs, organizing papers, or donating materials gives the teacher more time with students. I am also very pleased with the Strive character program and overall standard of excellence that is expected from the students and staff.

Coweta Charter Academy is the best school in the area. High standards and discipline are the school priority; the school is expanding because more parents want their kids in the school. Parents are truly involved with their child s education as well as the school s activities. If you are a complainer and lazy parent this school is not for you let other children take advantage of the great opportunity of being there.

Not good. Lack of organization. with the new construction it is sad and depressing and the kids cannot play outside for months now. Teachers are ok - they probably work more than they would in a public school.. In general if I could I would take my child somewhere else. I do not see the benefit to it. Not to mention all the money we need to spend on supplies - fundraisers- jeans days -volunteer time etc.

A great school with great teachers! The academics are strong but what I really love is that they teach the children manners, discipline, and citizenship and hold them accountable for their behavior.

My son attends this school and it is AMAZING! In words I can't truly express how I feel about this school. My son came to this school with some speech challenges. And with in the school year he has improved tremendously in every academic area imaginable. The teachers and staff are a true blessing to everyone. I love this school, but I really hate that coweta county decided not to approve funding for this up coming school year :( bad bad decision.
