We left Southwestern City Schools. My oldest is 5th-8th grade here. She's a great student &loves it! My youngest started in Kndgtn w/weekly homework&I'm thankful for this. I know if she would have gotten her start anywhere else, she would not be where she is today. They grade on an A-F scale in grades K-11, which I love! Once my youngest showed signs of struggling in reading...I FREAKED! Her having minor speech issues, didn't help with the reading level expected in kndgtn. She did so well in all other areas. She was even further along then cousins in district schools the same age, so when they wanted to retain her in kndgrtn, it was my worst nightmare. I had read&heard of this happening &didn't understand because I absolutely LOVED her teacher,&thought she was doing well. We made the decision to keep her here&I'm thankful. She flew thru her 2nd year with so much confidence. She's now thriving at the end of 1st grade. It's not always easy, but it's...A GREAT SCHOOL!

The kids aren't the nicest, the middle school bathrooms are filthy and disgusting, and in the girls bathroom there are mean and inappropriate words and comments bringing down fellow students self esteem. They say there is a zero tolerance for bullying yet they do nothing about it. All the teachers care about is winning stupid games and not how the students feel. We can't hug each other out of joy or if you are trying to comfort someone or we get yelled at. I do not recommend you send your child here not unless you want them to become depressed and feel like they are worthless.
Both my kindergartener and 1st grader got it Columbus Prepatory Academy. I have been nothing short impressed with the academic standards. This is a very caring community with good parents and great kids. They have a lot of room for growth as any school does, but hands down this is the best school and the administrative staff is care and open to parent input. I would suggest this school if you are a parent who wants to be involved in your children’s educational process.
