    I go to this school and it is very bad! They never return calls and emails. My dad and I went to the office because the wouldn't return his call and when we got there they were sitting around laughing and when we talked to them they seemed like they didn't care. Just like the other person said, the guidance counselor won't answer my email. Because of this I am looking into other schools that I can go to!

    I have seen bad schools, but this one is by far the worst one that I sent my children to. Do not send your children here. They will not get a good education. The administration does not know how to run the school. There is a huge turnover of faculty and staff (I wonder why). The guidance counselor is the worst one of all. She will not return your emails or phone calls. She does not meet with you about your child's post secondary education and scholarship opportunities. I have heard that the guidance counselor swears in front of children and asks them if they do drugs, which is illegal. Even more, she has graduated seniors and promoted students to the next grade level that have below failing scores. Something needs to be done. Young children are not get the proper education that they are entitled to. Be proactive and be smart, send your child to a better cyber-charter school, like Agora or PA Cyber.
