So I've been attending A+ for 3 years already and on my first year which was freshman year I loved it the first day! The school is way better then public schools.No fights or much drama. The teachers really help alot and well its like one big happy family in a class.Since it's a small school we all know each other. Its perfect and my knowledge has well improved .But they could improve by bringing in more kids waiting on the list and bigger space

The band teacher, ms gomez, is the worst! She is very up tight and gives students detentions for anything. She has no patience with kids and loves to say,"you are wasting my time." Parents think twice before enrolling your kids into band or be prepared to wake up early to send your kids off to detention for the dumbest little things. I was a former student at A+Academy. Yeah A+ was a good school before my graduation, but now it is slowly turning into another Spruse. The school was a better charter school for all high school students when Mr. Thompson was still the principal.

this is a great school they are big enough to be able to access the special programs that are sometimes needed. i love that they have grades pk-12 this leads to the teenagers acting in very approiate ways (unlike the public highschoolers).

A+ Academy is a great school for all the children because of their PK-12 teachers that are very dedicated to all the children and they work with them step by step to help them achieve GREATNESS. Mr.B is one of the teachers that are here in A+ Academy and he is very awesome!!!!!!:D

A great school... according to US News and World Reports in the top 10 percent of schools in the United States!!!! Need I say more??? The gym has been remodeled, new windows throughout the school. The school no longer being managed by TEA and has a new superindent that believes in the students who has experience. There is NO school in this area with higher scores and the teacher retention rate is so high, now, I have heard of only one teacher leaving this year and that is because of a move. I love this school and so do my kids!

I love A+Academy, i'm a freshman and I really love starting high school at a+! they're fixing the school up and although when I was in 3rd grade, i hated it and thought it was a cheap school, I have now noticed what the teachers and staff do for us. The teachers are amazing and I love them because they will stay after school to help you and a lot of teachers will find ways to help you get your grades up! i've been going since 3rd grade and I love a+:) i'm glad to be able to go to a+ because it's not like other high schools where there are different groups of people... in a+, everyone sticks together as a family! i love A+Academy, the teachers, and my fellow students!:)

I have been with A+ Academy for over 5 years. Yes, there are problems at the school yet many of the problems, as another teacher has already stated, is that the city has taken a long time to grant us the necessary permits for electricity. The school has worked hard for the last couple of years to address many of the concerns listed here. We do not have the funds that public schools do, yet we are making remarkable headway in improvements. This school has only been around for a little over 10 years and we were very close to making Recognized this year. What about the school districts like Dallas ISD that have been in existence for over a hundred years? If they still don't have everything perfect with all of the money given to their schools, how do you expect a newcomer to be perfect?

I also had two children that went to this school. The school is run-down; it has paint peeling off the walls in the gym, the lighting is very dim with bugs inside the light fixtures. The bathroom are extremely odorous with a certain fragrance of raw sewage. Teachers do not last very long at this school and I have recently found out that it is now being managed by the Texas Education Agency for the last year. I feel that this school is a waste of taxpayer's money. There are several schools in the area that are much better.

I have taught at A+ for some time. The school get a lot of flack for things that are out of administration's hands. For example, the school has tried to get the city to approve providing the school with more power, etc. for years. The city/state just won't approve the permits or award the grants necassary. Unlike other public schools, we don't benifit from bond packages. There is no magic wand here. The important thing is the kids-dispite all of our challenges we are a Academically Acceptable-close to Recognized-campus.

Come on everyone, it sounds to me like this school needs a janitor or two and (everyone) taking pride in the school. If you see something that needs to be done, address it with the school administration. In the gymn, open the windows. Fresh air is the best. AC in the Caf.&Classes. It takes faculty and staff, as well as parents and students, working toward a mutual goal of student success. The surrounding community also needs to be involved to a degree in the success of the facility. I am a teacher who saw an opening at the school. I am considering the possibilities and would assure my students that failure is not in our vocab. My students follow school and classroom rules while discovering that learning can be fun and beneficial. Students reach for the stars and if the moon is what they touch, that is good.

This school lacks a general direction in teaching and lacks extra cirricular activities for elementary students. While the teachers they hire are good they rarely stay longer than one school year.

This school may be lacking things that other schools have, but one things for sure is that the discipline is great and the school really cares about our childs safety and education.

I worked there for several years. The kids are wonderful and so is the principals and those below them. As for upper administration all they are in it for is the money. Supposedly they are a Title I School and the money is not being used much for the kids. From third grade down they get lots of curriculum materials but as for Fourth grade and up they get hardly nothing. I would not recommend this school to you students.

I have been at the school since 1998 and this is the greatest school I have ever attended or seen. the teachers care about the students, students have fun while learning, and the trouble is gone as soon as it starts. I am honored to go to A+ academy.

As an outside observer, I noticed a great amount of learning and fun. The students were well behaved and I felt the administration had a handle of what the classrooms were doing. I did see much need for some deep cleaning throughout the school as far as the tables, floors and atmosphere for entering the building. It does not take much time to shine things each week and model for the children to do the same. Thus, pride is shown through the cleanliness of the halls and offices.

The only complaint I have with the school is the AC,come on now this is Texas we have 3 degree temps sometime,the children need AC period! My child has attended this school for 7 yrs and she loves it the only thing is alot of teachers come and go and that upsets her,exspecially if a teacher goes that extra mile for the children and makes the learning fun and interesting.

The school is has come a long way from the past. There are more teachers dedicated and qualified to teach the students. There are new curriculums and activities to ensure that the students achieve. The teachers truly care for their students although they are not paid competitively to a public school.

their needs to be more activities and field trips for the junior high and high school students. Espeacially the honor students need to get informed on more stuff that is happening in school beacause since their outside they don't get informed on all things that they are suppose to. Also i think that the kids need to get more than 5 minutes after each class or subject. yes some just go to the hall and talk but aren't they suppose to! it's a break from being in class and only doing work! they need time, they are all kids! also they really need to put air conditioning in the gym and were ever it is needed.please fix the schoolforthe kids!

I am very disappointed with DISD's Seagoville High School. There seems to be a lack of communication between the administrators and staff, there seems to be many teachers that seems to have given up and are looking only to get the children in and out.

The quaility of academic programs leaves alot to be desired. Their are many extracurricular programs available. The school seems to be at the academic level of a 70's school, not quite as high tech as I am use to. The school student body seems to be content but there unaware of what there missing by not attending a traditional school with modern faciliy's.As a whole the school is OK if yout not looking to go to college but it leaves alot to be desired.

Although A+ profess's to care about the children...The owner won't allow the school to progress beyond where it is. Her focus is mainly on the honors program and it has no set curriculum.

Students are very important at A+. Everyone can participate in all activities, athletics, color guard, band etc. If students are willing to put forth the effort they can succeed here. They stress safety and security. The teachers care about the students. Parents are encouraged to participate.
