The Classical Academy High School Ratings & Reviews

February 23, 2018 Submitted by a parent
The best way to think about TCA HS is that up in D20 and D38 it is probably your least worst option. Palmer Ridge HS up in Monument is a good alternative if you want to try and choice-in. TCA is a good school but it is not a great school. The academics at the AP level have remained pretty good. We think the teachers are strong, and they assign challenging and appropriate work to prepare students for the rigors of the AP exams and college. The chemistry teacher, Ms. Cummings, is a standout, but there are others.TCA's weakness is something they say they want to be a strength: the whole student model...mind, body, spirit. The school overemphasizes the importance of extra curricular activities...particularly sports...which the administration refers to as co-curricular activities. We refuse to drink the kool aid on this. The "activities" consume vast amounts of time. A sport as simple as cross country has 5 practices a week between 3-6pm, meets on weekends, and rarely has transportation. The TCA band won the state championships, but there is a huge cost to this as the band kids are constantly on the brink of tears trying to get their homework done because of all the band practice. Don't believe me? The first 3 things you'll see driving onto campus are a gorgeous new baseball field that is empty 8 months a year, a nice artificial turf football field and a gym. The band gets to use the field AFTER the sports are done...often starting practices after 5:30pm. The Classical Academy is only now building a theater instead of concerts in the gym for the last 15-20 years.It's absurd over-emphasis on "extra curricular" winds up EXCLUDING students, which I find continually frustrating.So, if you have a student who isn't much concerned about academics, and can meet the rather absurd practice-hour requirements, you'll probably be okay. If you have an academic high-performer, they're really not wanted in any of the "activities".Where you'll appreciate TCA is in public settings where you can see students from different schools. The most respectful, self-controlled students in any crowd of teens will be the kids from TCA. They're good kids, and it is what keeps us there. But we don't operate under the illusion that this is St Mary's high school or something.

I am an alumni of The Classical Academy. On the whole I had a very positive experience there. Considering how poorly they pay the teachers (food stamp qualifying wages...even before Obama), they seem to attract a large number of very good teachers. Due to the poor pay you get some bad ones. The academics were if anything too easy. I was only challenged when I got to high school and took AP courses. The focus on character was also a welcoming addition which served me well after I left. In summary, TCA left me prepared for college in body mind and spirit.

Excellent academic and character. This is a true partnership with parents and faculty. This public school continues to surpass all metrics for evaluation.

As a graduate of the Class of 2006, I can say nothing of the last 4 years of the school as I have not attended for that time. I can say without a doubt that the time I spent there fully prepared me for university academics. Using my well rounded education at TCA, I was fully prepared for all academic walks at college and was able to graduate with a Master's degree in 4 and half years. If you are looking for academic rigor, this is definitely the school for you.

TCA is a choice school deliberately designed to serve a specific portion of the community. Students who are college bound from relatively conservative families will probably do well. The conservatism does limit diversity, but overall most parents and students genuinely care about others. From my experience, parental involvement and general commitment is excellent and honestly, expected and required for a student's success. The school emphasizes character instruction which is somewhat successful. In terms of character, the student body is not perfect, but certainly commendable in many ways. The school receives bad press for a fraction of the problems that are out of control in so many other schools. Low teacher salaries lead to teacher turn over and less experienced teachers. However, many of the teachers are truly dedicated and excellent. Lack of funding limits elective options. A family needs to decide if it's a good fit.
