In no way would I recommend this school for anyone. The curriculium is not great to begin with, and it doesn't help that many of the teachers(with a few exeptions) are not very good at teaching! The very few extracurricular activities are jokes for the most part(the "anime club" is nothing more than playing video games), and the sports teams are rarely any good. The administration is laughable, never interacting with students and treating the school more like a prison than a place of learning. I have also seen the principles not honor their word and discourage students from their dreams. There is little paretal involvement for the most part unless something drastic happens with a student. EVERY person that I have talked to that came from another district(students, teachers, parents) have said they preferred their old district to this one. The only good thing I can think to say is that the facilities are not bad. Don't be fooled by the acadimic award they won, they in no way deserved it(I have heard, but haven't seen substanial evidence, that they "got rid of" records of bullying, fighting, etc. in order to recieve the award). If at all possible DO NOT send your children to this school.

I recommend this school, because there is alot of music, art and corus classes to select from. The english classes such as journalism are fun and offer much to learn, as well as algebra and geometry. The computer and woodworking work shops are tremendous and the acedemic success changes through your stay at Pembroke Academy.

We provide an overview and current status of the Race to the Top program that was designed as an incentive and funding program to promote education reform in public school districts across the country.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
