Teachers are non-certified. Is NOT a school with a HIGHLY accelerated pace and rigor, IT IS NOT TRUE!! The teachers are slackers at school, so they just send an incredible amount of homework for the students to catch up at home. The school is specially bad for children with learning disabilities, because they don't have professional certified teachers likewise very smart children will waste their potential in there. The school is great for children with behavior problems and average students because "Imagine" will make them feel "special".



- a
Most unprofessional, disorganized and rude office staff from the registrar all the way to the program director. I also feared for my child's well being at this school and pulled them within the first 3 months.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
My child was attacked by another student at the school and not witnessed by any adults and the entire situation was handled in an alarming manner.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
My experience has been almost exclusively with middle school. The leadership team has been prompt and thorough in investigating and addressing any concerns I have had.

Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
THIS IS JUST MY OPINION. I don't have kids with learning differences and so I cannot provide real world insight, but I do NOT think this is the school for students with learning differences. Parents who send their students to Imagine should be prepared for a HIGHLY accelerated pace and rigor. Students with academic or emotional challenges will likely struggle - a lot.


Effective school leaders: Neutral


- a
I think the leadership is still learning but they are moving in the right direction. Thy middle school team appears very organized and proactive.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They have monthly character challenges and special days when all the grade levels meet together in "family groups" to talk about important things.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are amazing. Unfortunately, there is a lot of turnover (I think this is because charter schools don't have as much money as traditional public schools and so I think the teachers get paid less.) Still, they either have great training or a great recruiting process because we have always had stellar teachers.




- a
Phenomenal K-12 environment with fantastic vertical alignment of course work. Each grade level lays a foundation for learning for the next year. This has helped my children to make connections OVER TIME to cement their learning (and avoid the conceptual gaps they experienced at previous schools where teachers and programs passed the buck by saying "you should have learned that last year").



- a
My children are challenged. They were bored in public school. The environment is not for everyone. You actually have to be a parent to your children and take an interest in their lives at school and what they are doing. I have read some reviews about how hard it is and chaotic it is, and the comment about how it is discriminating against low income families. Let me ask those folks what did you do to find a solution or did you just whine and complain. Imagine is not perfect, it is an organization run by people with all their failings, but from what I have seen, Imagine is way above the schools my children were in.
