Wakisha Charter School Ratings & Reviews

August 30, 2012 Submitted by a parent
Too many students assigned to a room(30). They lied about school curriculum(Spanish was to be available from grades 6 to 8) Staff, including principal, doesn't return calls. High turn over in teachers. Teachers actually quit during the school year, and aren't permanently replaced. I'm currently waiting for my daughter to be called to attended another charter school.

This is not a good school! My daughter is in the 6th grade and I do not want her to attend another year. This school does not comply with parents request to help there children. I have met with the principal on many occasion to help my daughter it has been 3 months and the school has not done anything. This school has no order and the students are out of control and I have seen them with my own eyes that the faculty has no control over them when my daughter told me about this in December I told the principal and now it is June and nothing has changed. I advise all parents if you want your child to go to a good school Wakisha charter school on 9th & Jefferson street is not it. Do not send your child to this school because the faculty can not teach them and give them order. This is not a good school they lied about what they have to offer.

I wouldn't refer this school to anyone. My child attended last year and an 8th grade teacher would never respond to any notes sent. Another 8th grade teacher thought they were the same age as the kids. How are the children supposed to get an education there with adults like that.

I have been attending wakisha for 3 years and i have seen other students come and go.wakisha is an excellent school academicaly but no socailly our community wise. the school is in bad condition but they are movin to a new building in january.the grading system is ridiculous. A 70 is a F. Plus, they do not have any extra cirricular activities. I will be graduating this year and i do not reccomand this school to any one that isnt all about grades.

I have 2 children at Wakishia, 7th & 8th grade. This is a pretty good school. I can say that they really try to teach our children and help them prepare for their future. There is always room for improvement (ie...transporation, lunch program, inexperience of some staff members), but there are plenty of positives there as well. Overall....a smart choice for our children.
