They are strict, but it is in a good way and all of the children benefit from the dicipline. A calendar mark is only intended to keep the parent informed of the student's progress. If they didn't impliment this system, parents wouldn't know what areas their child is having problems with. This school is highly recommended and academically challanging than Performing Arts. You can't compare the two. Christopher Columbus is the Cadillac of schools and Performing Arts is the Chevrolet!
While the academic portion of the school is great, it appears this school has a rigid and strict regime that expects young students to adhere to only one staff direction and after that they recieve numbers and then demerits. Imagine a first grader being told only once to stop talking, once that is supposed to last the entire day, and if they continue to talk and get a number on the behavior chart they get suspended. Do yourself a favor, try Performing Arts Charter School instead.
