City Academy Ratings & Reviews

City Academy is a wonderful learning institution that goes above and beyond to make sure your child receive a quality education. Parental involvement is a must and encouraged. The teachers and principal reached out to my child and I to get as involved as much as we wanted. The school provides a caring and jovial atmosphere and yes the school is fairly new. I love this school and their efforts to thrive towards excellence.

City Academy is an awesome place. Truly awesome. We live in the City and the elementary school our children would attend is unable to demonstrate that students are able to consistently perform at grade level. As a result, we simply cannot rely on the public schools in our neighborhood to provide the level of instruction we want for our children. Because City Academy is private AND independent, it is able to determine it's own admissions criteria and hire the teachers who best fit the school's mission. That level of autonomy is encouraging as there are no local or state mandates with which the school must contend. Most importantly, students are happy and encouraged to take pride in their education. There is no stigma associated with wanting to do your best in the classroom. It's very exciting to be a part of this special school, and we feel extremely fortunate to have our son enrolled.

City academy overall is a good school with high expectations for children. They focus on teaching and encouraging independence in students.The curriculum is very academic rigrous. Tutoring is provided for children who struggle but beware they would be put on ademic probation if they struggle to catch up with their peers.There is alot of family involvement with required voluntary hours and parent education classes you must attend. Fundarising is also a big part of independent schools as well. You have to sign a contract stating you will do all the above guidelines if you don't the contract ends. Overall the kids are engaged they never want to leave,breakfast and lunch included as well as before and after care.There are after school activities which your child can particpate in that is included with tution. Tuition varies depending on your income. Children get taught by teachers who study in that particular area and are engaged with many hands on learning experiences. This school isn't for everybody but I think it suits many. This school would be great for advanced or gifted students who can do well in a an accelerated pace not for the kids who need extra time.

City Academy is overall a good school (if you can get beyond the politics of how the school is ran). My one complaint is tuition, if your in good with the folks in the front office (administrators) then your tuition is often times half of what a parent who breaks their back to provide for their family and simply doesn't have time or energy to brown nose with the elite. Academically the subject matter is fine if your child is average but if your child is below or above that bar, beware!! Not really challaging but is one of the better curriculums in st. louis city. My child loves the after school activities (which is included in the tuition). Breakfast and lunch is also included and the children are not allowed to bring in outside food (its cereal everyday for breakfast and the grounds keeper is in charge of the cafeteria).

City Academy is a good school for a particular type of student and parent. If your student has academic or bahavior challenges it is not the school for your family. Many of the teachers are new to the classroom so there are challenges when the student is not "easy". Parent involvement is mostly with fundraising and extra curricular activities, not so much in the classroom. The teachers struggle with communcatiing classroon activities and behaviors with the parents because they try to foster independence in the students without parental involvement. This may not always be the best approach for teaching independence with younger students. This school is new so there is still much to be learned. I would consider it a good school because of its ultimate goal, but it is not one that I would overwhelmingly recommend over others in the same category.
