It's a great school academically. But if you're poor be prepared for your child to not be able to participate in some school functions such as, concerts and plays. In just one week they asked for $45. $15 for a spring production, $20 for a father/daughter dance and a $10 for a field trip all due in the same week and that's just if you have one child. I could only imagine the pressure a single parent of multiple children feel with the expense of this school.
My daughter has been attending since kindergarten. Great school academically. They have a lot of behavior issues but that stems from home. It is the job of the parents to discipline their children, not the teachers. Once everyone gets that into their heads, the schools and children would have better outcomes.
The Academy is a good school academically, but safety issues was my biggest concern and problem. Some of the teachers are inexperience, have no college degrees, and not capable of controlling the classroom's behavior.. In specials the kids are out of control and wild. The principal and deans show no concern with the safety of students when issues of safety and concern are brought to their attention. I would not recommend anyone to put their child in this school. I rate this school a one for major safety issues, and lack of care for the students.
Academically effective, but experience with classroom control and behavior issues very ineffective.. Most of the teacher have no control or experience in controlling the classrooms behavior. The classrooms are over crowded.
The school shows very little compassion, and concern for their students. It makes me as a parent feel the children are just a paycheck. As a parent it makes me angry the school shows no empathy to its students when it comes to issue concerning students.
