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.

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.
Guilford Preparatory Academy is wondering school that is growing every year. We provide a quality education to all children and we take learning seriously. Our goal is to make sure that when your child leaves our school they are prepared to enter any academic program anywhere and be successful students and citizens.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
