My child came to this school and had caused problems when he first got there. The staff worked with him even people in the office. He just got suspended st his other school but now he is doing good. People who work there know all the kids but some of the parents need to be responsible too. This is a good school.

I feel like my child is challenged academically and the teachers are concerned with involving the students in their education. The school provides extra curricular activities and my daughter was recognized each time she made the honor roll. The building is gorgeous and technologically advanced. And parent involvement isn't 100% but is not the worst either. In my opinion the more parental involvment the better the experience for both parent and child.

Parents should NOT send their children to this school! While the building is beautiful, it is ran poorly. The administration is concerned with one thing......TEST SCORES!! The principal is not supportive of staff and in turn is an adversary. Extra curricular activities are present, but once again, POORLY ORGANIZED! Every assembly is put together in an unprofessional manner and students are NOT properly recognized for their accomplishments. Do not be decieved by the building, take the time to really inspect this school to ensure the success of your student. Many teachers are unprofessional, unqualified, and are there to just get a paycheck. Lastly, the man who started the school, the CEO, is aloof, vindictive, and is more concerned with establishing his reputation in the charter school community rather than the welfare of his students. Send your student to a school where they are number one, as it should be.

This school is a disgrace. All of the staff are uneducated and rude. They do not know what they hell they are talking about and this school should be closed down. It is not state of the art. This school is ghetto and they try to make it seem like it's not but it is.

The school turn over is high and the administration this school are very unprofessional. The male staff at this school are more concern with what the females are wearing and trying to get into their pants. The staff that has been brought on to the school is because who they knew and not on their previous job performance. This adminstration is very clickie.

I was reading the reviews and not once did anyone talk about the education the school provides. I am please with the education my child receives. My child teacher are the best. They keep me informed about my child progress (bad or good)and set up a plan to help my child to be sucessful. No school is perfect. The Parents need to be involved. Come to a parent meeting and voice your opinions.

The school overall is a mess and the staff needs a lot of professional development on dress and manners. The climate manager and the assist needs climate control with their tone, grooming tips and coaching so that the general public doesn't perceive them as ghetto and unprofessional. You do not have to let the environment become you. The school has to realize that just because they may have a degree does not always make them qualified. Please look for better staff for the next school year.

The deans office is a joke and the staff needs to be monitored more than the students. The staff spends more time on their cell phones or office phones.

The dean at this school has been observed flirting with the parents and not focusing on the students.

A pathetic school. Scores made me sick. The management is terrible. Fights left and right. No discipline. Classes are enormous. Parent involvement invisable. Couldn't pay me enough to work there.
