Uplift Education-Hampton Prep Primary1

If anyone ever wondered what a dysfunctional charter school is, look no further than Hampton Prep. I made the mistake of sending my 6 and 13 year old children to Hampton Prep last year and it was a complete nightmare. Academics at both the elementary and middle school were weak. I wasn't surprised when the elementary school a failing grade from the state this year. If that wasn't bad enough, there were days when disruptive students prevented teachers from completing their lesson plans. You would expect a charter school to handle undisciplined students better that a regular school, but not at Hampton. It went on all year. Hampton Prep is the bottom of the barrel among Uplift charters. Until the incompetent administration, poorly performing teachers, and student issues are addressed, it will continue to be the worst. I recognized that and put my children into public schools this year that are much better than Hampton Prep. If you are a parent that values a quality education for your children, look elsewhere. I wish I had.
