My grandson goes to TPA and I agree with the previous two reviews. The school is extremely unorganized and crowded. The teachers do not appear to be on-top of what THEY should be doing. He was on the honor roll when he came - he isn't now. My grandson has one teacher that talks consistently about himself instead of the subject matter; another teacher is teaching from a book that the children DO NOT have access to she says there is NOT enough to go around. So the kids MUST rely on and take notes. WHY? That's ridulous, We are in the 21st century, that statement sound like the ones from post-slavery days. Lastly why is this school in trailers IN THE BACK of a church? Like the 4th grader's parent, I think this will be his first and last year at TPA. No wonder the score is so low.
This school is a complete disappointment. My daughter is a fourth grader at TPA and this is her first (and last) year at this school. The school tries to communicate the importance of character, but the teachers treat the students with utter disrespect. The yelling and verbal abuse has gotten so bad, that I wrote the administration about it twice and nothing has been done yet. Do not send your child to this school if you want him or her to be a successful student. The school is overcrowded and completely unorganized. On the first day of school, the staff was still printing classroom assignments for the students. It took 1.5 hours for my daughter to get sent to her classroom. The homework assignments are about two grade levels lower than what they should be. In my opinion, this school should be shut down. It is NOT a good example of what a charter school should be.
Overall, this school would be a lot better if it had more space and better organization. Another problem with the school is teacher turnover. They have more substitute teachers then I would care to see. The administration is nice and seems to have solid academic goals. However, they are not there because of lack of space and teacher absenteeism. Until these things are addressed - on a consistent basis- I would not recommend this school.
