Coeur D'Alene Charter Academy Reviews

The Academy is a wonderful school that prepares students for college in almost every way necessary. It fosters students grade sixth through twelfth and teaches them not only academic success but also healthy life skills. The school has great teachers who are committed to their students and their future. The school is small and allows for students to connect with peers, teachers and administration. The academy requires students to wear uniforms and follow a dress code, but they still allow for students to express themselves in a positive way. I would recommend this school to almost any who wants a great education and a meaningful middle school and high school experience.

I love school and Charter helped to build me up and feed my love for school. It was hard and there were times where I wanted to give up. But most of the staff are helpful and kind and will walk with you through the good and be there for you during the bad. Overall the school is amazing. The only thing I would possibly change is how things such as ISATS and SATS are approached. You can go to a college preparatory school, but your atmosphere should still feel safe. Charter needs to work on how to balance wanting to be a college prep school with the fact that students need to feel safe, and need to learn how to be okay with failure.
Coeur d' Alene Charter Academy is a rigorous college preparatory school that is open to the public. It is easily the best high school in Idaho. SAT scores from students attending the academy are 200-300 points higher on average than the state average. The homework here is definitely a major factor in keeping students out with a rigorous 2-3 hours every night, but this number helps prepare students for the long journey of college.
