    "THIS IS MY FIRST POST and want to state how much I appreciate the staff, teachers and administration for ALWAYS going above and beyond to assist my child that has special needs . I am disheartened to read that another parent has such a negative outlook on this school, but it seems that NO Charter school could ever muster up to the extremely high expectations that seem to have been set. Calibre is a tremendous school that offers many options for parents to be involved, but that does not mean parents must participate in every event. We will remain at Calibre until it s time to shuffle off to high school, and I know my child will be prepared to tackle, with confidence, all that H.S. has to offer."

    "As a parent at this school I felt compelled to review in response to the recent one star review. As a working mother, I appreciate all that Calibre Academy does to keep my child safe in the morning, so that I never feel unsafe dropping my child off. From the moment I pull up to drop my child off, and a smiling employee opens the car door to help my kindergartner out of the car, as a second employee watches him walk through the gate and a third and fourth, etc. supervise the children on the playground, I know he is safe. The PTA, of which I am one of much more than 5 members, works tirelessly to make this school better through fundraisers of all kinds, from weekly popsicle sales on Fridays to Jeans days and seasonal fundraisers. The programs the PTA puts on are beyond amazing! The sports program is superb and the sports director puts his heart and soul into making the program all it can be FOR THE KIDS. While I do think the the curriculum at Calibre is excellent, I believe it is the teachers and staff that make the school excellent."

    "So this is my second and final review. I think that if your child is well behaved and pays attention without being distracted, talks out of turn, and is perfectly obedient, then this school is for you. They have a great curriculum but the teachers are horrible and unprofessional. I can hear another parents business because teachers shout stuff to parents or are loud when they talk of their issues. It is a charter school (a fake, non traditional school) like every charter school is. They do 10 fundraisers every month and they only have like 5 people in the PTA. They lack supervision in the morning with the exception of some lady who never smiles and sets the bad energy tone for your kid in the morning. The parents dont follow the rules, the sports program is a joke, and the kids lack supervision. Kids rough house and the adults do nothing. There are many other things I can say about this school but I prefer to write them in my blog which has earned me 234 followers every month, on average. I guess it depends on your preferences and understanding of the school system. Other than the teachers and staff, the school is amazing. They need more experience and new staff."

    "I am a teacher at Calibre Academy and one of my favorite things about this school is my 4th grade team!. We work together and help each other out whenever we need anything. We make sure that each of us has what we need to further and better our students education. We also have a wonderful support administration that supports us whenever we are in need, they take care of their faculty and staff not just as in employers but as friends and mentors as well."

    "This will be our fourth year at Calibre Academy (formerly Carden Traditional) and we couldn't have found a better fit for my children. It is a very family oriented school that welcomes parent involvement and has many programs in place to help students of all levels. There is a great RTI program for those struggling in reading as well as tutoring available after school. They have a Middle Years IB program for the older children, this year they are implementing a new program called CAPP designed for students that thrive in a faster paced and more in depth learning environment. They have an award winning PTA that is very involved in helping make improvements in the children's education and community outreach. I believe Calibre has also qualified for Title I recently which will allow them to assist more lower income families. We also have a great extra-curricular sports program including our LIttle Colts program for the younger grades including basketball, soccer, and now flag football. Parents do need to understand that it is a charter school and is not run the same way as a district school. For our family that is a huge plus, others may not feel that way."
