    "Run away! This is not an "over glorified homeschool". That insults homeschoolers. Audeo, Altus and Charter School of San Diego are ALL THE SAME SCHOOLS!!! Think about it. Kids are supposed to learn from the book at their own pace, do the work, and get out fast. The teachers are there as guides. WRONG!!! There are no single subject credentialed instructors. There are no instructors familiar with the details of any lesson plan at the time the student asks a question. For the two "part-time" multiple subject credentialed teachers there are usually 3 "aides" who apparently are "highly qualified" parents.This might work if they had the proper curriculum. But they are using INCOMPLETE and OUTDATED traditional school curriculum. The lesson guides are so old that the teachers can't do anything but make photocopies of old photocopies. The curriculum there was meant for a portion to be presented by a teacher and the students to have online access, neither of which is happening. Their teachers are really great at double speak, and would make very good marketing and sales reps for an Enron type company. This school is just a way for someone to scam taxpayers and skim off education funding."

    "I had doubts about the light work load and apparent lack of difficulty of the ind study program but my kid scored off the charts on all the state standardized tests so I guess it must be OK; he's already smart anyway just won't do anything. Anyway it was the only school that would take him after he got kicked out for selling drugs so I am very happy with it; the teachers seem very nice although there apparently isn't actually much interaction...."

    "I echo the sentiments of the March 18th post. As a former employee, I will attest to many of these concerns(and have stated as such to the Charter office at San Diego City schools and in a published article outlining many of the problems). On top of the very average curriculum and a number of policies carried out by the administration that are 100% detrimental to students achievement, there is an atmosphere of fear at the school that make it very hard for good teachers to be both the professionals they need to be and the advocates of kids that I feel is required. This is a school that needs to have serious light shone into all aspects of its management. There is a lot of good in the program worth salvaging. With ethical and caring administrators, CSSD might pull itself out of this lowly ranking."

    "Let me just say that in my 11 years of schooling I have never seen a school more unproductive, more uncaring, and more unfocused than the Charter School of San Diego. I was a student at the Woodman branch for 2 years. I learned absolutely nothing. The school teaches through nothing more than elementary school designed lesson guides, and their focus is on everything that doesn't relate to college. I write this letter as a way of communicating to people out there that this school should undergo a major academic enlightenment, or completely shut down. I am no longer a student at this school (thank God), I was lucky enough to get accepted into a more academically prestigious charter school called Health Sciences High and Middle College. I hope someone reads this letter and is inspired to change the Charter School of San Diego system for the best. I would not recommend this school to anyone. As a closing, let me just say that the teachers at the Charter School of San Diego are fraudulent and don't care about the students at all."

    "My son attends The Charter School of San Diego. Before he started attending this school my son hated school. He was lost with all of his classes. The Charter school of San Diego's model of giving one or two classes at a time, and having wonderful motivating teachers, has really changed my son's belief in himself. My son's teacher, Mr. Armstrong, took him from wanting to dropout to being a successful college student. This school gets five stars."
