I attended Gem State Academy and in my opinion the best things about the school were the sports program and 2 teachers. Everything else seemed neglected. Everyone is required to work to make 1,100 amount tuition even do able. It is fairly small, and I have made a lot of friends their. But the college prep seems to be lacking and not nearly as good as other public schools, such as charter schools. God is at the school, but not as strongly as you would expect.
My child is a current student at GSAA and she just adores everthything about her highschool. She feels although some of the rules and expectations are tough to agree to and obey, they have made her realize life isn't a picnic. If you want a safer environment and more spiritual growth why not take the jewelry off for a few hours of the day. Gem State Academy has had a lasting impact on My girl and she has learned to grow up and work hard. Though the expectations are high the kids are helped every step of the way so they can strive to meet them. Gem State is no doubt the best thing i could have ever done for my daughter
My daughter has recently been put in Gem State. She has been happy and willing to go to school. I have seen a big change in her and She's happy with how kind all the people are and how fun and helpful the teachers are. She said 'Their actually explaining how to do things and helping me' I'm happy to pay for her to go here. When you have God in your life you a happy person!
