This school is not good. The students have no recess, no time to stretch and only 25 minutes lunch time. Their lines are always long so it's always a rush for them to get to their cafeteria. I fear the students will get scoliosis because the seats are connected to the desks, so when the students want to move up to the desks, they have to bend their backs.

Beloved Community Charter School offers a very rigorous and challenging curriculum. It requires parent involvement and committment, which serves as an advantage for your child(ren) and allows them to succeed academically. My two children placed in this wonderful school and although it is a fast paced academic curriculum, I enjoy it because my kids are challenged to their fullest potential.

They do not practice a 'well rounded' child curriculum. The focus is all on test scores. Kids spend 98% of their day with their noses in the books...no time for activities or just to de-stress.
