Dehesa Charter School Reviews

I absolutely loved Dehesa Charter School! I attended from 5th grade to a sophomore in high school. You have an option to attend a "Resource Center", and for me, it was a great experience. Although very small, I made close friends and passed all of my classes. An EF (Educational Facilitator) meets with you once a month to check your progress on your studies and classes. Through Dehesa Charter School, I was able to have free control of what classes I take, and my schooling was personalized to meet my needs at that time. Overall, my experience at Dehesa Charter School was amazing and prepared me to go into traditional school after I moved away from California.

Dehesa was great! Especially for me, as an independent student looking to catch up on credits I was readily helped. They give you a budget to spend on school supplies and help pay for your books and fees to college classes. This was a great help for me because I was behind a semester and I wanted to graduate on time with the rest of the students my age. It was strict and I saw many students get expelled but as long as you stay engaged in your studies you will be fine. It's a great school for independent students.
Dehesa is a wonderful school for student who lead an unorthadox life. It is very flexible if you have an inconsistant schedule. They are very accommodating. Be aware that your experience greatly depends on the Educational Facilitator (basically the teacher for all your classes) you get. It's very easy to fall behind academcially if you're not motivated. However, they have amazing tools to prevent that including optional classes twice a week and $500 a semester to be put towards any outaide resources you want to use. I recommend, but I warn parents that it is very different from a normal, 5 day a week school.
