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.

It was a different school in 2011, now it has changed drastically. I went to West High before, where I was bullied and ridiculed, but at City the teachers care. The students rarely pick on one another now. It feels like home when I walk in the doors. They all want you to succeed, unlike other schools. The music program is amazing, as is the theatre program. Our STEM programs are outstanding. We may be little, but this school is fierce!

This school saved my life! I came from a big school, and it ruined me. Made me a shell of a human. City Academy has undergone some serious changes, including firing and hiring new staff members, tweaking the rules, and becoming more involved. The school is amazing, and I recommend it to everyone!

I attended this school for 4 years. Now that I am out of school and trying to find a job, I see how bad an experience this school was for me. It is a disaster!
