Every Since Mrs.Buckrham Came Back to Guilford Prep the school Became A Non- Respectful Enviroment. She does Nothing Around the school, She Likes to see the students Suffer, Also She has No respect for her Staff. My Children did better at Guilford county schools, I'll say if Mrs.Buckrham Leaves Then Gpa Will be Back On track.

GPA has consistently outperformed the local LEA , and in some areas, the state, in test scores and this past school year, when the common core state exams went into effect, we outperformed many of the schools in the local LEA and some charters, that serve the same demographic. For the past five years we have had 100% passing rates in Alg I. For the past three years we have outperformed the local LEA and the State in 5th and 8th grade Science scores. Our third grade math, prior to the change of the test was over 95% passing. We consistently and successfully serve the under-served students in Guilford County and we do it well. Of course there will always be parents who cannot be pleased. However, our work speaks for itself and like all schools in every county and charter, there are always areas for improvement and we strive to improve daily. Please make sure you make decisions about any school your child attends based on your own experience and needs of your child. The thing we do best is care about your child in a small setting and that is why we have parents returning every year and refering us to others. I enourage to visit us and see for yourself.

I would give this school one half star if i could. My child is in fifth grade and she still don't know her multiplication table. Her teacher say to me that theirs no time to teach memorization. I said what??? You mean she going to middle school next year and she still don't know her tables??? And they say as long as she know the concept of multipliation she will do fine, memorize them later. Needless to say I wasn't satisfied with this response and talked to the principal. He yawned in my face and stood by the teacher! No way I would send another child of mine to this school. Don't even have a playground for the kids to play on. A very sad excuse for a school.

This year, once more, Guilford Preparatory Academy made High Growth and AYP!! This was possible because of the dedication of the staff and parents at this school. Teachers came on Saturdays to tutor students. They came at 6:30am to tutor students. They stayed until 5pm two to three days a week to help children. Parents at GPA recognize the importance of education and we supported them every step of the way. The staff has high expectations for us as well as the students and we appreciate them for the care they give our students. We are very proud of our school and we will help the principal and staff to exceed our performance next year!

This is my child first year at the school. As a charter school, the school is horribly below my expectation. Can you imagine public school tremendously outperforming this school? Overall, i will not recommend this school to any parent.
