Swallows Charter Academy Ratings & Reviews
My grandson has a disability in learning he is six yrs old he is very smart but he is a only child and has had some trouble being around other kids instead of helping him they told my son to home school him this year and they would hold a spot for him next year it seems to me that they are not seeing his problem to help him he needs to be around other kids badly to over come his social disability he also has attention disorder all he needs is a good teacher to show him these skills at school why don't they help
Compared to the neighboring district, this school is better. But that is not saying a lot. I appreciated the staff listening to my concerns on a bullying issue. They responded immediately. Academic wise--the 8th grade set of teachers is nothing to brag on! My student spent most of the second semester watching movies. The math CLASS was pulling in low C's, the music class spent the ENTIRE semester watching movies, the science class did a total of 2 very simple experiments, the Language Arts seemed to be average, and the one great teacher taught First Aid and History. She was the kind of teacher that the kids hate at the beginning because she actually requires them to think and work. By the end she was the ONLY teacher my student had any respect for and actually ended up LOVING her classes. I felt like it was more babysitting than academics on the whole. If there was anything better near here I would not continue at this school but so far this is the best we've got.
This school is amazing. I am very thankful to have 2 children attend the elementary school. Although no school is perfect SCA comes close. Just look at the ratings posted in the pueblo chieftain a few weeks ago!
Went into get enrollment packet at the end of last year for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Listened to secretary belittle a child in the office in front of others then talk about the childs home life to other parents. Left the school and will not be placing my children there. They claim they are the best school in district 70...their GS score says otherwise. Glad to be at another local school.
This is an AMAZING school with excellent staff! The administration is great! I have attended the school since 6th grade and next year I will be in 11th grade. Many changes have occured with staff and administrations and extra curricular activities, but it didn't detract from the great quality of this school. It is definitely more centered around academics rather than extra curricular activites, but they are availible. I played volleyball, basketball, and track this last year while in student council and I still maintained a 4.0. You have to be willing to work hard, but the knowledge obtained is well worth it. I would reccommened this school 100%! It's amazing! :)
