My son is a recent transfer from another school. He's only been at PLA for about a month and I love it! It's a much better atmosphere than his last which was more "military." His teacher and staff are all very caring and passionate about the kids and their education. My only regret is not enrolling him at PLA first. One of the main reasons for enrolling my son is that he is being taught on his own level. I like that the classes are small and that the students get the individual attention when needed. Another reason was their discipline policy. They are not quick to suspend a child for minor reasons but they work with teachers, parents, principals, and counselors to help the child with whatever issue they're having. For my son, that was a plus. He's had such a tough transition into kindergarten and they are very understanding of that. PLA is the best charter school in the city.
This school has exceptional school leaders and teachers. PLA is committed to excellence and high achievement for every scholar. The leadership model and core values of PLA develops the whole child. PLA is a GREAT place for scholars!
