great school overall and only has few good teachers needs more storage for the students like lockers
I am really disturbed by some of the posts about MCA. I have nothing but good things to say about this school. The teachers are professional and caring. They go above and beyond to help their students. No place is perfect but it is obvious they are striving to improve every day.
this school is suppose to be a non tolerance bullying school but it is not I have about 3-4 people bully me every day I am glad this school is moving. They let us know on such short notice I am going to the school that is suppose to be there next year legacy preparatory school it is suppose to be much better. I came to this school on second grade I loved it until this year in 5th grade. They won't even have a 5th grade graduation instead they are having a 6th grade graduation and they go to 8th grade. I hate that school it is deffenily the stupidest school I ever went to
Mt child has went through 2 different second grade teachers this year and the person now, not even a degreed teacher. They are classroom assistants. My child never brings homework, becasue they have no teacher to assign lessons. He never brings home a folder. My child has attended this school since Kindergarten and this is his last year there. You cannot get an answer from anyone. Plus I get a call each week at work asking me if I can asssit w/school lunches. I explained and do each week that I work 8-5 M-F and I am unavailable to asssit. But then next week I get a call. My child gets hurt and they call to advise me, but I never get a report like they say I will...The children misbehave and throw desk across the room and are very disruptive. If they would put more care into teaching the kids, rather than worrying about thier uniforms, then my child might learn something. I loved this school up until this year. But my 2nd grader not having a teacher and no direction this entire school year, has caused me to reconsider him returning next year.
This school is a Joke!!! A GLORIFIED DAYCARE! This school is the perfect place if your child is a behavior problem and can't go to the public school. I know first hand that this school treats everybody that works there like dogs, and teaching students is the last thing on their mind. The person making all the decisions, has never been in the classroom and lets her secretary make all the decisions! You can't ever get a straight answer, they do not have the supplies needed to teach any grade. The school is moving and if you decide to move with the school, your child is in my prayers!
I truly believe someone on the staff wrote these reviews. This school is a catastrophy. This year they partnered with Mesquite Christian Academy and became Mesquite Charter Academy. My kids attended MCA before ECIA partnered with them and I have to admit that was a huge mistake. The administration is so far and beyond unorganized, uninformed and careless. Allowing my kids to stay at this school was poor judgement on my part and I feel unfit as a parent for making that decision. The teachers are not certified, or degreed. The administration seems to rather focus on personal affairs of others than trying to make this a functioning and prospering institution for kids. Who's in charge...You'll never know because all of them wants to be in charge. There is no consistency and the program is the worst hands down.
I moved to this school during my Junior year. Over all it is a wonderful school, it has great resources and a loving and helpful atmosphere!! I plan to graduate from here in 2009!
I recently transferred to ECIA from a 'preparatory' Academy and I have to say I am impressed by the school. The staff is friendly and teachers are always available to help me. I also have to say that the school surpassed my expectations. I just wish it had more resources. Although the school does not have the nicest appearance, I think its a great school with a bright future. I plan to graduate from here.
I loved this school. The teachers were great. If I needed them for anything they were there for me. I was on the pool team for two years and it was awesome. Berkner was the first school in Texas to have a pool table in a classroom. Berkner was like a second home to me.
This is a very good school for students with good behavior. Teachers really care.
This school needs a tremendous amount of help and money. It is very poor, most of the students are 'at risk' and very few of the teachers are certified by the state of Texas. The leadership of the school is run by a family, a mom and her two daughters. The principal is in her first year and is struggling to meet critical deadlines. The school has a rating of academically acceptable, which is comparable to a 'C'. This school has moved around quite a bit in the last couple of years and more than likely will continue to move. The school lacks leadership and vision.
