My son currently attend the school and I have noticed changes within the school and from previous reviews.There are only a handful of wonderful teachers but not enough for the entire school. You never meet the principal only the "team leader". Do not be fooled by their persona. They do not make learning fun and have a lack of programs offered. My son will not attend next school year.

This is one of the best Charter Schools in Newark. The teachers are student friendly and if you child is struggling, they are on point to help. The children love Team Academy and every morning these children are outside an hour before the school opens and the school opens at 7:20 a.m., that is how much these kids love this school. Someone previously on this review didn't like the Saturday sessions, I don't know what happen in the past, but the only way your child would go to school on a Saturday is if he/she earned a trip. There are no classes on Saturdays on trips and events. I am a Parent and I love Team Academy..

As a former student of TEAM i have to say it is one of the best schools in Newark. They make learning fun but also easy. They become more than a school they become family, you actually want to get up and go there. I remember in 5th grade by October i can honestly tell you i had memorized my times table, the same times tables that i had tried to memorize sine 2nd grade. An extrodinary school i recommend any parent who actually wants thier child to be something to enroll them in TEAM imediatly!

I strongly dislike theyre sister school(Rise Academy) because it is way to strict. Just like all Kipp schools including team. The kids have to gop to schoo, on Sat. stay untill 5pm,and they will not allow my child or any any of the others to skip grades when evry day my child comes home to complain that he was taught things he learned 2 yrs. ago and was sent to detention for going ahead on work.Also the way he was sent home with a homework notice for foggetting a period on his heading. i understand the choices of Kipp schools to helo our childeren and im not saying 4 them to change evry thing just to simmer down on the strictness

I m the parent of a 5th grader currently attending Team Academy Charter School in Newark, New Jersy. This is an excellent - top notch school. Team Academy has exceeded my expectations. My daughter has learned more at Team in one year than she has learned in all her years in public school. I have never seen such dedicated teachers. They come early and stay late. Thank God for Team Academy!!!!

I would also like to recommend this school to many parents who are interested in relocating their children;due to the upmost fact that one of their math teachers has won the ' teacher of the year award', and another won the literacy award for the best teacher in the united states. On top of that the school is free.

I would have to say this school is exemplary, from the teachers work performance to their work ethics. TEAM Academy instructors teach their students to be leaders amongst their peers which their performance demonstrates that excellence. TEAM Academy staff members are diligent employees. The students not only learn academic skills but are disciplined in a mannerable fashion.

I currently have 2 children attending this school and I would have to say I have never experienced a school like it before. The teachers are there day and should I add night, for these children. You can call a teacher after school hours to get questions answered. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to give their child the education that she/he needs. I have seen teachers in the school until way pass 7:00 p.m helping students with their daily activities. I want to say thank you to all the staff at Team Academy. I don't [know]where my children would be receiving this type of education if it wasn't for you.
