Global Concepts Charter School Reviews

I have attendant GCCS from first grade to now my senior year. The school has about 75-100 students per grade, so it's a rather small school, making it like a close-knit family. However, there seems to be a lack of choice in certain classes. There are no AP classes, and languages besides English is limited to only Spanish and Arabic. I was put into an online Spanish class due to there only being one teacher, and I ended up retaining very little of the information. There is no official calculus/pre-calculus class, and as a student who managed to double up in math, I was left in a class with five other students where little was accomplished. Art is very limited to just either traditional arts, chorus, or band (however, I believe they are adding me - this year they added a culinary class). Teacher have also left half way through the year (we managed to go through 3 geometry teachers in one year).

I had attended this school since first grade. There is a lack of classes offered. There are no AP classes. There are only a few art classes and even then, you are not guaranteed to be put into one. The teachers tend to not discipline students. There is a lack of communication between everyone. There are few sports offered and almost no clubs.
I currently attend this charter school and the teachers are like a revolving door, especially in math. I am very involved in this school, I am in sports, and multiple Honors societies. No matter the setting, there is always a lack of resources, and dedication. I have approached administration many times and they never take any student or parents seriously and there is a major lack of respect.
