Do not send your children! Warning! Very poorly managed the children have more authority than the adults! Bullying is a huge issue that is ignored because that can''t lose any more students! Stay away

This school has very bad issues with bullying. Co founder and board are the problem . They have been taken all the way to the state board of education for there behaviors . People who have reported problems get thrown out not heard. Be careful call state ASAP if your child is bullied there.

Gate City Charter School for the Arts has provided my family the opportunity to attend a school of community, kindness, respect and academic challenges while studying the arts and not losing site of children`s imagination and creativity. We have been traveling 25 minutes (a lot of days longer with traffic) each morning to get to GCCSA for over a year now. I feel it is well worth the travel to come to a school that offers my children the ability to find and excel with their strengths and challenges them to overcome their weaknesses. This school provides an environment that allows teachers to teach to each student`s strengths and moves them academically to keep them engaged as opposed to standard testing and teaching to the lower middle and bottom of the class only. My children are happy to go to school each morning and see what adventure is in store for their classroom. They feel valued by the teachers and staff at GCCSA who are helping to shape them into amazing individuals.
