Flagstaff Charter Academy Ratings & Reviews

We've been a part of this school for 7 years. If you are looking for a fantastic education for your child, this school is for you. Note: this is a school that expects family involvement- volunteering, and being connected from the parents. The leadership team as well as the teachers have many venues for communication. This isn't a school for the more challenging child, in my opinion, however. The school seems too tolerant with children who are not thriving- and need a different situation.

Leadership at this school makes the rest of the school follow in poor quality. The school survives on the wealth of the parents. FA is in a race to the bottom.

This a solid school. It is Core Curriculum. If that is what you are interested in, I think you will like the school. My first grader is learning amazing things but the amount of homework is astounding. He has weekly timed math tests, spelling tests, and usually a social studies test. This is along side the state mandated testing. Ugh. They do have a great focus on science. However, we are uncomfortable with the focus on memorization. Our son is very bright but the focus on memorization and timed tests seems to dim his love of learning. We will likely move him next year to a local IB elementary because of their project based learning and focus on creating a global citizen. We came from an IB background and really like the way its creates a love of learning. I am very surprised that another parent said there wasn't homework. We have at least 30 minutes-45 minutes nightly for a first grader. This is a bit much. We want our kidsto have a good education but not at the expense of his spirit.

While we found most of the teachers at Flagstaff to be exceptional, the current administration is not focused on what is best for kids and is completely dismissive of any parent input. They do not address bullying or other serious concerns, including any differential services for students with learning or social needs. When you advocate for your child, nothing happens and in fact, some staff engaged in things that are highly questionable and that could be detrimental to a child's well being. This never would have happened with Dr. Warren in charge. It is sad to see an establishment so drastically diminished. If you have a child with no unique needs - either above or below the norm and you are willing to say nothing and have no input then this is your school. however, if you are someone who wants your child to be treated with respect and consideration by ALL of the educators - look elsewhere. Beware of assuming that a charter school is better.

To misquote Star Wars, "This is not the school you're looking for".Years we have spent here and the promised education we have been supporting has not materialized. All my volunteer hours, money, physical donations and time has been spent trying to make this a better place and the board has laughed in my face. Appointing a principal and head school (what's Mr. Graingers title again?) with no education degrees, and in one case, no experience. The school refuses to admit that the lower test scores might not be because of curriculum but because of a constant stream of sweet but inexperienced teachers. When I received the email this week that a group of teachers AND parents reviewed a new reading curriculum, That was the final straw. What do parents have to say about a school curriculum?!?! We should defer to the professionals but unfortunately there is no education leader here and the one they FINALLY hired will be too late for my kids. Adios Flagstaff. The $500 in activity fees I used to pay to get my kids caught up for public school (and thanks for excluding my kids to the field trip also, it made their decision to leave much easier).Also notice the school has not received the "John Irwin Award" since 2012 (and award given to schools that demonstrate excellent academic achievement).You will hear the term "very vocal" (update: and "obviously disturbed") when referring to parents who criticize the problems with the school. I heard it over and over and it is mainly used by members of the administration to down play the issues. Ask yourself this, why don't other schools have other similarly "vocal" parents? Where are those reviews on those school sites? They are non - existent. Don't take my word for it, read the reviews of other local schools.Update: My kids are thriving in their new schools. They are challenged in math (finally!!) and EVERYONE goes on the school field trips, no exclusions. Oh, and I didn't have to pay a large fee to start the school year...two thumbs up for local, public schools!Update 2: My oldest child just emailed me to let me know that although started middle school significantly behind in Math, just tested (after 8 months in public school) and is now TWO grades ahead of where he needs to be in Math. Thank you St. Vrain public schools for giving my child the Math curriculum and experienced teachers that was needed
