We decided on Cowetacharter this year due to our friends speaking so highly about it and we feel confident, academically we made a good choice. Yet we give the school a three star for not allowing a true parent involvement. It seems that Coweta Charter is only interested in parents who follow suit and not the ones who think outside the box or the ones who question their authority over your child.

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!!!

CCAS is an amazing resource for kids who have challenges with learning. The SPED team is caring and knowledgeable, and they work with parents to develop an individualized learning plan that focuses on each child's specific needs.

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.
