As a parent of a child who attended City for two years, I would caution any parent considering City. They have a revolving door of teachers, uncaring administration, and cannot individualize education in any way for your child. We have gone back to public school after City and are finding many more opportunities for our child and much more help.

City Academy is a wonderful school. The teachers are amazing and really invested in helping everyone to be successful. Everyone is really passionate about learning and it is a safe environment to be whoever you want to be. I have loved my time at City so far, they have really helped me improve my writing and math skills, which I struggled with at other schools. The theater program is amazing and they have so many other great programs, despite being a small school. Plus if City Academy doesn't offer a class or after school activity you want, the faculty and staff are willing to work with you to create it. I have accomplished more during my two years at City Academy than at any other school and I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community.


Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
City Academy has a zero tolerance policy for bullying and incredibly accepting students and staff. The teachers create a safe space where if there was an issue students would feel safe to come and talk to the teacher and get the help necessary to deal with the problem.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
City Academy supports all its students and welcomes everyone into their community.

Develops character: Agree


- a
Everyone at City Academy is very accepting and understanding. It is very much a safe place. Like all schools it has its problems, however, the faculty and staff have been working recently on ways to improve motivation and respect of the students.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers are dedicated to making you successful. They are willing to work with you to give you the best experience possibly and go to extra lengths to make sure you really understand the information. The teachers make City such a safe environment. If I had a problem I wouldn't be afraid to ask a teacher for help. They really want you to leave high school as prepared for college and the real world as possible.

There is a new Principal, the Theatre Department is awesome. They have all of the Arts on the bottom floor. They also have a new building management team and the place is starting to look great! ***It should also be noted that the test scores are based on 2013 scores and that was the first year of new common core testing. The test was a mess. If scores were looked at today they are much higher. They also include AP courses in their rating. We do not have AP. We have Cambridge International courses. They are better and known world wide.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
They teach problem solving skills and treat the students as a part of the learning community. Zero tolerance for bullying.


Supports LD students: Agree


- a
Personalized education is important to them. They strive to teach the kids what they want to learn.

Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
we have a director and principal who are working hard to build a strong faculty!
