Fernleaf Community Charter School Reviews

Fantastic little community-based school that innovates in education and overall classroom experience! It's so incredible to walk into buildings where teachers are happy (they're actually allowed to teach!), students are shown respect and treated well, and in a community that teaches respect for self, each other, and the environment. It has been an honor and privilege for our family to be involved with this exciting educational opportunity for our children, and we absolutely love the school's dedication to utilizing global best practices in education to ensure top outcomes for our children as life-long learners. For our children, they are so excited about learning and actually genuinely look forward to going to school each day (but still not so much the getting up early part, tbh). It's so awesome to be a part of a community that cares so much for its families that we feel a part of one big giant school family. FernLeaf is amazing!

Our time at Fernleaf was filled with disappointment and frustration. Initially I was excited about the laid back approach and the project based learning. But I quickly learned that this approach led to poor classroom behavior and then to poor learning environments. The project based learning was not implemented well. My kids got farther behind each year. I also recommend that any parent considering the switch to Fernleaf first research their progressive K-12 sex education program.
Initially, our experience was positive, but when my student required tutoring we got the run around. The school is not focused on academics, rather the good try approach. Teachers don't care about grades as long as some minute progress is made. Students are advanced without appropriate grade level knowledge. If you're interested in the socail acpect and have no regard for academics, FernLeaf is for you.
