At first I was hesitant to put my children in this school, but after years of my kids being in this school I am so happy with the outcome, my children's self confident is really high, attitude is best, the grades are really good and EOG scores are high, the open door policy of teachers and enormous patience and outlined curicullum , enviroment is now more secure with the new building , the personal attention the teacher giving to the students cannot compare with puclic schools, my children are more relax with less homework and more school interaction , They do not stay late everynight just to finish homework and being tired the next day like when they are in public school, teachers listen to the parents .
Charlotte Secondary School is a small charter school with roughly 80 students per grade. The school currently offers Grades 6-10 - with plans to expand through Grade 12. When my step-daughter first started at CSS in Grade 6, she immediately fell in love with the school. While many middle-school parents hear of their child being "lost in the crowd" or horror stories of bullying, I have only heard my step-daughter talk about how much she loves CSS. The parents, teachers, and students are all so passionate about creating an inclusive, family-like environment for learning. We couldn't be happier with CSS!
If you want your child to feel accepted as they are then Charlotte Secondary School is the school for your Middle School Child or High School Child. They are expected to be the best they can be, but not measured or compared to another student. Each Teacher is a coach to their students and coaches them along their way with the support of parents. There is great communication between the School Staff, Teachers, Students and Parents. Charlotte Secondary is definitely the School for our family. Thank you Charlotte Secondary School!
My school is northeast middle school I got bullied a lot and wasn't getting help with that
Excellent school. Our daughter is a current 8th grader and started at CSS in 6th. She has thrived and has been challenged by the curriculum. Last year she was selected to participate in the Duke TIP program and took the ACT. We were thrilled that she scored among the top in the nation. She looks forward to going to school everyday!
I have been a parent at CSS for 2 years, and I feel the atmosphere is a great learning environment for the students. They get to participate, be heard, and learn in such imaginative ways that stimulate every child to want to do their best. The teachers are fantastic!
My mom submitted a post yesterday, about Charlotte Secondary School. She left out this fact: the 6 th grade teachers are the best! And that had to be said :)
Wow! I am new to the school this year, and I am so impressed. My son has found a love of books because of the librarian, and I just realized this week that she is a volunteer! He goes in during his free time in the afternoon, and she makes him feel so special. He used to hate reading. Rock on Ms. B! I volunteer at the school too, and when my shift is over, I don't want to leave. The family atmosphere is so welcoming, and seeing my child doing so well just melts me!
9th grade will be added for the 2010 school year. My son has enjoyed his middle school years (6th, 7th, 8th) and looks forward to high school next year. The teachers are great!
Charlotte Secondary is now 6,7 and 8th. 9th grade is scheduled to be added next year -2010. My son is in 6th grade and is very happy at the school. The class sizes are small so the students get to know one another. The teachers are enthusiastic and open to parent involvement.It feels like a small close knit community of families who work together for the betterment of their children. We love it!
Charlotte Secondary is a small public charter school. We have small class sizes that allow our staff to work more closely with our students. The staff is truly dedicated to making sure all of our students succeed. They give of their time not only in the classrooms, but on their own time to remain after school for tutoring and sponsoring clubs and serving as coaches. Our parents also give not only their money, but also their time to work as tutors, librarian, technology assistants and club leaders. There is constant contact between parents, staff, students and school leaders. Parents have a vital role in the planning and direction of the expansion of our school as we are growing one grade level per year. Since we are not entitled to receive funds from the state of NC for facilities, we have to be creative in raising money and supporting our school for growth. The one thing I love the most about Charlotte Secondary is the way we as a school community work together to help all of our students, staff and families. No one is left behind!
I liked going to this school. Most teachers were nice and easy to get along with, but there are some that make you want to scream. I did miss the feel of a public school, such as having sports, lockers, a cafeteria, and gym. Since I'm moving I will not attend next year, but overall this is a nice school. The great school rating is about right.
This school is the answer to our prayers! My child has found a perfect fit here at CSS. I was not against traditional public school, I simply wanted a smaller, more intimate school for my child. Well, I got that, plus so much more! I immediately fell in love with the Padaeia system of teaching. (look it up if you are not familar with it.. it's fabulous!) It throws traditional, boring auditory learning out the window and brings in all sorts of exciting, interactive learning modules that just grab hold of the kids! The teachers seem so excited to be teaching, and all kids are made to feel special, not just a chosen few.
This is a great school. Offers a lot of great opportunities. The teachers are friendly, and help with whatever is needed. The students are also very friendly, and try do do their best. Currently it is a 6th and 7th grade school, which will rise a grade every year, I would love to stay in this school. I really do enjoy going here!
This school has an innovative program, integrative curriculm and caring teachers. For an excellent hands on learning envirornment look into this school.
The worst school. Teachers are abusive, mean, and the school is very small. it need to close down
not stable, understand that it is new. it appears that many of the students have behavioral issues. need to be more structured
