We are from San Diego, and the ratings plus reviews for the schools in Columbus are horrible. This is difficult.

This school is GREAT!!! My oldest child learned so much last year. I am very excited for my Kindergartener to start this coming school year. They learn so much and the atmosphere is great. I could not have chosen a better school for my children to attend.

I love this school. when i was at my old school i was learning about line segments in 2nd grade and when i walked by a 1st grade class room they were learning about line segment and it was october and they dont even push the kids over the edge they take it nice and easy. the fighting has gone away and the school is much safer. i would never go to another school ever. they even added 9th grade and more sports other than basketball. this school rocks.

Kids are fighting all the time. My child was bullied everyday and threatened, nobody cares or does anything to stop it. Pricipal makes alot of promises, but doesn't keep them and Behavioral Specialist did nothing when my son was threatened. All they care about is money and scores. For two months before OAAs they had 40 or more kids in a room "drilling" them for the test. My son will not be back!

The curriculum is demanding. Equal to a parochial school education without the tuition. The school is a true community and Test scores continue to rise each year.

I agree 100%- the school is terrible. Just go to an assembly and the children watching are so undisciplined that you can't even hear the children who worked so hard to put on a good performance. Children get good grades but don t test well on state wide testing. I took my daughter out and would not recommend this school to anyone.

This school gives charter schools a terrible name. Very unorganized, kids out of control, high staff turn-over rate. I would not recommend anyone to send their kids here.

I think CATA is a very good academic school. The teachers are positive and they care about the students. I think they are on the right track being a fairly new school.

My daughter attends CATA and I do not belive that the school is challenging my daughter. I like that the school is small and there's more one on one with the students but I don't think she will attend the school next year, even though she made honor roll I feel that she can learn more with more experience teachers.

I had a very poor experience at this school for the 2 years my son attended. He came from a school that was in academic emergency, he did not make any progress at all while attending CATA. He is still in a 3rd grade math and reading level. I have been forced to pay for expensive tutoring to help him make up for what he did not get at CATA. He was better off at his previous school. I would not recommend this school to anyone!

My daughter is a kindergarten at CATA and it has been a wonderful experience. She is reading, writing math equations, learning about other cultures, science and a lot more than I learned in kindergarten. The teachers are wonderful and they care about your children's education. If I have any concerns about my child, I write an email to her teacher and within a few hours I have a response. I don't have to wait till after work, before I can talk with her teacher. Security is great also. I am really proud to be a parent of a CATA child.
