Abby Kelley Foster Charter Public School Reviews

Abby Kelley Foster is where all parents want to send to their kids for school. AKF is a good school overall academically, but there's other stuff that goes down with it. In elementary school, that school is really was ok. The teachers over there really cared about the student's well-being. I felt welcomed there. The middle is a whole different story. The middle school teachers are rude and are always complaining about how they "don't want to be there at school" in the middle of class somethings. The teachers there are also racist among people of color. My eighth-grade Latin teacher told my class "All the bad kids are going to Spanish and all the good kids are going to Latin next year for high school." She was saying that all the black kids are bad and the white kids are good. Like who says that? Worcester Public Schools have more sports than AKF and they're not even a charter school.

Only students needing extra help or assistance get any attention. Average/above average students work independently. Clubs and sports availability is minimal. There is no feeling of community or opportunities to be closer to the other families at the school. Many students have disruptive/violent behaviors that unfortunately make it very hard to learn and feel safe in the classroom.
Abby Kelley has K-12 which is extremely beneficial. The school has so many different clubs and opportunities for students to participate in. The school presents a diverse and nurturing environment. The teachers and administration take time to build the students and work to encourage the students to achieve their highest potential.
