My two daughter have been going to Eaton since 3rd and k. I love the school. I would recommend it to others. I pulled my daughter out and returnned he the next sermester. The teacher are very caring and love the students very much. The administrative assistant is awsome.

This school has had some great teachers and students over the years. However, the staff is constantly changing. Why? Administration is unsupportive. They are demeaning to staff and student in public. The administration has changed quite a few times over the years and now the management company keeps changing. They say they care about student success, but all they care about is themselves. Management and administration does not care about staff or students. They pick a few students that they like and then those students are allowed to do whatever they want whenever they want and other students are disciplined for trying to do the same thing. Stay far away from here if you care about your kids.

This school changes management more often than people change their socks. In the process, they lose quality staff members (either from quitting or being laid off), and the parents of high performing students choose to send their children elsewhere because they grow tired of the chaos. I have personally witnessed students and parents being verbally and physically abusive to staff with little to no consequences. There is literally no attendance policy; none. There are students late for school everyday and/or violating truency laws; missing 80 or more days of school. I could go on and on, but basically, I don't even know how this place remains open.

Eaton Academy lacks diversity in their teaching staff. The school is majority Black but has few Black teachers. Their hiring practices should be looked over by the EEOC.

Eaton Academy is not to bad of a school, but it does have it's down fall such as any other schools. What I truely don't like is the lack of communication from the teachers. You can never get a meeting with the principal, He is either never there or busy. As one parent stated in a 2008 comment their child received low grades because of missing assignments. It's 2011 and the same thing is still happening. One of my children went from National Honor Society to a 2.4, due to missing assignments. One teacher told my child she is not there to teach but to provide information, and this was a math class. Where are they finding these teachers. My high school child has had at least 5 english teachers in one school year. There are no extracurriculum activities for the students. Only sports is basketball and cheer. Due to these public schools closing, these charter schools have to step it up and offer more things for our kids to be involved. I have a child that will be graduating this year, and 3 other that will be returning. I am willing to give Eaton Academy one more year. I'm just hoping they make some major changes.

Do not send your child to this school it want to deal with teachers with bad attitudes and a school that has no languages, and no extracurricular activities. This is the honest truth. Sadly important issues do not get resolved just overlooked. T

the special education department for the high school is not really good, they do not offer a lot of help, and they do not have a lot of extra activities. The high school teacher are not helpful, so if you have a child who is not good with their academics, please do not send them to this school, they will not receive the help they deserve, you might as well send them to a public school. my 9th grade student had two math classes and no gym, no music, no elective class.

This is my child's first year at this school and the communication skills with the teacher is very low. The principal is not really involved with the elementary students. I have tried several times to have conference with the teacher regarding my childs progress and she always say she is unavailable. I think the need more help over there, they only have one teacher for each grade.
