I'm very shocked about all the negative reviews, I disagree 100% with these parents, Challenge Charter School has been the biggest blessing our family could ever have, everything in the school revolves around the best interest for the kids. They work hard to make sure the kids get the best academics, environment and safety, they apply discipline and don't tolerate disrespect, is that a bad thing? Our daughters are thriving, we have been there for 7 years and they are like family. Challenge is an excellent school, it's not perfect, nothing is perfect in this life. As mature adults, we should give our kids the example of respect and grace, and to put such negative inmature "reviews" (rants) should show anybody the character of the authors who wrote them. Let's take responsibility for our words, for each finger that judges pointing forward, there is 3 pointing right back at us.

My child came in for testing and told teacher she is hurting while testing and the teacher disregarded her. Then the results came in they told me that my child is not teaching material and said for her to come to their school she needs to fail a year to get in to the school. I thought wow judge a child by one test immediately is not fair. They should have accepted her and taught her and check if they are teachable children before judging a book by the cover. All kids are smart no matter what and they need to boost a child to read better and they said they are really good on teaching but they never tried to teach my child and i heard they fail many kids if they did not do well on AZMerits Exam.. Sad school if you ask me.
I have 3 kids who have all attended CCS. It was a very good option for my kids, but I understand that it isn't a great choice for all kids. I do think they are a little overprotective and worried about kids getting hurt at recess so what they are allowed to do is limited, but my 3 kids all still enjoyed going there. 2 of my kids have moved on to other schools and we have found that Challenge set them up academically to do very well at their new school.
