Civano Charter School Ratings & Reviews

November 26, 2017 Submitted by a parent
This is a great school if your child is smart (but not gifted), a self-starter and doesn't really need much guidance. Otherwise, they will be teaching themselves a lot of the curriculum. A huge percentage of kids who left the school in the past few years was because they couldn't get the help they needed. These were children of people who were leaders in the parent community. As for character and bullying -- year after year bullying has been a complaint and the school refuses to actually do anything about it.If you want to see for yourself how committed the teachers and administration are to the school, drive by 45 minutes before or after school. You will almost never see a teacher there. They arrive and leave with the bells. And they NEVER come to after school activities unless they have kids enrolled in the school.

My children have had a wonderful time learning, and we have had a wonderful time as a family meeting with and being part of a caring, kind, educational community focused on the best things for our kids. I have a now high-schooler that learned about being responsible for your own education and has a 4.0 in high school. The most recent state test results came out and my kids were in the upper echelon of standardized testing. The teachers care, the parents care, the kids care. My kids look forward to going to school and are upset when they have to stay home. My learning experience was the opposite!

Unique and wonderful! It is a small school environment and I know more parents here than at any school my kids have been involved at, or that I was ever enrrolled in. There is a whole culture about becoming a self-guided learner and being an active parcipant in all facets of your own education rather than sitting at a desk and having an instructor be in charge of what you are able to learn. The scores can be misleading, as the school is on a two-year cycle with the lower grades, but the critical thinking skills, positive experience and lack of discipline related issues more than make up for a school that doesn't teach to the test.

My children have had a wonderful experience at Civano. It starts every day with group sharing and singing a positive song together. I know most of the other parents and a good number of the kids. There are overnight events in the community and even a camp-out on the mountain that a lot of families go to over the fall break! For school events, it seems every kid and parent is present! For a fund-raiser, the kids created a restaurant and made a menu, took reservations and then worked from 5 pm to 10 pm on restaurant night. Kids hosted, waited tables, did dishes, prepared the food and even played live music. They learned while they earned! (PS, this was made possible by that commercial kitchen! So, yeah, the priorities are right!) Beyond the school culture, the teachers are great and it is a collaborative environment. As a parent I feel in tune with what my kids are being taught and love that they love learning. There are special electives like gardening and robotics! My kids learn at their own pace and are pushed to achieve more than they thought possible. With their tests scores in the 90+ range, I'm satisfied they're learning more than they would at other traditional schools!

The teacher and staff of Civano are amazing. they are always available and eager to help work with parents and students to bring out a child's best. Students are taught to be responsible for their own learning, meaning they learn time management at an early age and adopt a, "the buck stops here" attitude towards work. This program does not "teach the test" which results in less stellar standardized testing scores in earlier grades, but the pay off is reached with excellent scores later. The students have been taught to think their way through problems rather than memorize seemingly irrelevant facts. Parents and community are extremely involved and it shows!
