This school has showed me who they truly are this school year! After my daughter was retained for kindergarten, I decided to send her back basically for her foundations and learning and to be where she needed to be. Last year they claim she wasn'tnswering questions actively participating this year she is more mature talks more and my daughter is a very sweet girl would never hurt anyone, after getting a phone call from a teacher last week and speaking my opinion and concerns I was told I needed to have a meeting with them, in the meeting some things I said over the phone had been documented and question I didn't argue with them I didn't do any of it in the meeting I was there to observe them whether they knew it or not, they called my daughter in the meeting and declared we all are people who love you and want to see you do right as well as she needed to make eye contact with them to earn her way back to class! As a parent, I did want my daughter to go back to class but my daughter didn't follow through with the orders within the 2 minutes that they set their timer. Every day this week I was getting phone calls about my child them saying she did this and that and when I ask questions like what's going on it's always this conversation isn't professional. So I decided I can't deal with it anymore, even if my daughter isn't in the school charter schools need to investigate them to see what's going on there especially with the elementary school! If a parent ask questions they shouldn't be shut down, I feel like they were playing me against myself and my daughter to get their way!

I love this school and I wouldn't change my opinion. We have five classes and all of them are filled with excitement and energy. We do chants and we are encouraged to work as hard as we possibly can. I am in the fifth grade and our goal is to be role models to our younger pride members. Our goals are to have the highest test scores in North Carolina, attend and graduate from the college of our choice, and be world-changing problem solvers.

A child can not be a child at this school, if you want to ruin your childs childhood with hours upon hours of reading worthless books, and hours of homework even when the kids are out on vacation break, and you only care about test scores that means nothing in the real world, send your kid here.

The school and teachers are extremely strict and can be quite rude. The receptionist is rude, the school also act as if they do not want parents to come in the school or classrooms. I have never had my child where I couldn't go to the school at random times. My child had one of those long Pink erasers that I purchased and sent to school with him and he came home to telle that they took his eraser from him and said he couldn't have it because "erasers are Earned!" What type of nonsense is this. The children are not allowed to talk all day, they are constantly doing work (even while waiting in line for lunch and while eating. They were told to "complete a sentence/question now reward yourself and take A BITE"! this is how their breakfast and lunch goes. There is no recess or " brain breaks" as my son calls it. They are constantly working and I'm definitely not a fan of how it's operated or them trying to keep parents out of the school as they brain wash the students by in intimidation, yelling and isolating students from "the pride" because he raised his hand "when no questions were being asked or answered at that time!" And my son became sad, put his hand down and let out a sad sigh and the teacher made him wear his shirt inside out for three days straight to ridicule him before everyone and they also made him sit to the side of every class for three days to "isolate" him. The school never answers phone calls either. My son's father is military and he even feels that their actions are too much for young children. My son is only 9y/o. I feel as though the curriculum is great and the ideas of them learning at a higher level is beautiful, but the way they implement/present things to the children/students is completely wrong, rude and disrespectful. These are people, our children NOT animals. Parents please just go up there and check things out. It may be for your child, but I will say that it is not for every child and I am withdrawaling my son from the school. I refuse to allow a school which should be a "safe place" to ruin my child's self esteem, individuality and childhood. My son received straight A's at his previous school and that is where he will be goingoing back to. I hope that this review help oome parents.

Students are yelled at frequently. Students are assigned hours of homework every night. Lots of homework assigned for Thanksgiving and Christmas (several lengthy packages, a novel to read, and a test to prepare for)! Stricter than the military Lots of teacher turn over No textbooks Needed notes and documents for studying and completing homework are often required to remain at school Some grade levels do not receive bathroom breaks Conflicting, incorrect, and incomplete learning materials Almost no physical activity (usually replaced with EOG and EOC test prep) Thoughtful, educational, and enjoyable field trips
