I attended this school 10th-12th grade. The small population and one on one with teachers me in earning my diploma. Plaza Academy is what gave me the confidence to be the person I am today. The life lessons I learned are worth a lot more than a lot of the education I recieved. This is not your traditional highschool. If your student is on their way to failure this is the school for them.

My son went to this school from 7th-12th grade. He was so delighted to find a school that was college preparatory that also gave him help in areas he needed it. We found a great family atmosphere and wonderful love for the families. They have a family atmosphere at The Plaza Academy and positive reinforcement that excels the students to do their best. I m grateful for what The Plaza Academy brought to us in time of need of a better education. My son is so proud to hang that diploma on the wall. I m a parent that found the sacrifices I made to send my son to a better school to get a better education was more then well worth it. Who wouldn t want a better education for their children and a school willing to take the time to do their best to meet a students needs. They work side by side with parents to help you in many ways with the needs of our teens today. Just call them and ask.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
