    "Its hard to rate a school because there are so many factors that go in to it, however this school deserves to be on the plus side of the overall scale"

    "My girls have attended The Academy since kindergarten. They have gotten a Fantastic education. I'm just rather unhappy with lack of discipline with students in classrooms and the traffic is horrible and sometimes parents are in to big a hurry and gets little dangerousness. My daughter has almost been hit in her car multiple times."

    "It has certain things that are not as good about it but overall, it is a really great and amazing school to go to where staff, teachers, and students are all equal."

    "I've had children in both the elementary and secondary wings. The elementary wing is overcrowded, and administration panders to the select few who live in neighboring Bradburn (and seem to have unlimited cash resources to throw around.) My child was bullied constantly, and administration did nothing to help the situation other than insinuate that my child was a problem child and encourage us to move him elsewhere. The secondary side has had tons of problems with scheduling, and it doesn't get better when you reach senior year. The counseling office starts the conversation about post-secondary options way too late in the process, to the point that we have elected to be advocates for our own child's college options rather than work with the counselor. These students should be thinking about National Merit and college testing WAY sooner than second semester of junior year. And, just as in elementary, the school is overcrowded. There are lunch periods which are so overloaded that children are forced to sit on the floor to eat. And what's with the 'all animals are equal but some are more equal than others' mentality? We have students who are begging for assistance to get into college classes and are bringing solutions to the administration - students with near perfect GPAs and a history of responsible behavior - and their requests are ignored. But, there are students with past truancy behavior who are allowed to have 'modified' schedules or have access to tools to graduate early? Academy was a pioneer 20 years ago. The charter school landscape has broadened and become more diverse in the last five years. There are far better options in Adams and Jefferson counties now."

    "Too much effort goes to elementary and not enough to secondary."
