21st Century Charter School Reviews

In short, I am both a senior in high school and a college student at Ivy Tech Community College. This experience has taught me responsibility and accountability and I learned many things ever since my freshman year in high school. I work well with Microsoft Office functions such as Word, Powerpoint, and Excel. My work ethic alone is a big factor of my experience. I was elected Secretary of Student Government during my junior year of high school and also participated in basketball each season. I've taken AP United States History and AP Environmental Science. 21st Century Charter School has definitely prepared me for college!

21st Century Charter School is an alright school. The best thing about it is the dual-credit program. I am currently in the dual-credit program, so I'm in highschool and college. We have good professors who don't treat us differently. The dean and principal sometimes curse at and/or manhandle students who are causing trouble. A lot of the time, one of our admin. curses without any concern of it teaching the children that it's ok to use such crude language. It's gotten a little better though. The food has gotten better, but sometimes it isn't too great. We don't go on many interesting trips, only colleges tours, really. We have a good mix of people at school. There's a lot of African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Hispanic, and mixed race students. We don't have an auditorium. The school is very small. It's literally two hallways, a gym, and a lunch room. It's not the worst school, but it certainly isn't the best. Oh, and we currently have D.
The things that I enjoy the most about 21st Century Charter School is that the school within itself is a great experience for anyone to pursue a great education. The teachers and staff all work together one on one with students to help them learn and understand what the fundamentals of the lectures are. The school taught me to always stride towards success and to never give up on something that I truly believe in, honestly I can say if my parents didn't enroll me into a school like 21st Century Charter School, I wouldn't have a great education in my own opinion. I recommend many parents and students to all give 21st Century CHarter School a chance to enlighten their views not only on education itself but also on their lives.
