Enterprise is a great school. I am very pleased with my child's progress through the years. My son is an honor roll student & has been able to experience a lot @ Enterprise such as band, field trips, many after school activities & much more.. He has done them all. This school really gives city children a wonderful experience with no cost. My son like's to go to school early & stay late. The staff is very welcoming!!
I took my girls out of Charter school here in Lackawanna to enrolled them in Enterprise because they have so much to offer their students. My children actually look forward to going to school. The festivals they have along with a whole bunch of afterschool activities (my girls are in Girl Scouts) are wonderful. The staff treats you more like family. The Color syatem gives the kids something to work for (All blue celebration at the end of the month) and Fun Friday if they Get all blues or green for that week. They are more of a hands on school. They try to get the children out to see what they are learing. My girls have already been on 1 field trip and there are more in the future. They have an excellent summer program also. The kids went to bever Island this Year!
Just to clarify. 'Fun Friday' - approximately the last 20 minutes of each Friday- is a behavioral reward for those students who have demonstrated exemplary behavior throughout the week. It is based on a behavior system that is used schoolwide and that aims to teach students that there are consequences to the choices they make. Given that our students have a longer school day- and work a great deal during that day- it is time well earned.
I hate this school the reason why the school does bad is because they do not have any support classes like academic help classes instead they have something called fun friday where they play at the end of every friday which i find a waste of time
As a parent of two children at Enterprise Charter School, for the past 3 plus years, I have nothing but great opinions of it. The teachers are highly qualified and all staff treats the children like family. All children k-11 recieve music, art, P.E., spanish,and technology. They also have an extended day which allows for a period of enrichment or remediation. They welcome parents at any time and have an amazing discipline program.
