Many of which are with teachers. Our small school is mighty in spirit. The student body is very diverse and allows children to grow up and lean with others from different backgrounds. With amazing administration that values our school and changes, it is easy and non-threatening to confront the adults when we have a dispute. Our administrative staff is reachable and shares the love of the school. I know that the admin staff and teachers at the schools are all friendly and nothing but friendly rivalry and busting each others chops. All the teachers get along and when all the teachers combine with our kids, the school gets raised and meet and exceed our charters standards. Additionally, the kids get rewarded through Honors Breakfasts and two Spirit Weeks. We host an annual Taste of Global, where kids and teachers work together and learn to make cultural dishes and represent the countries in a fun and educational time.

I liked how the teachers cared about us and tried to push us to do better. The teachers created a safe, invigorating learning experience for all students. The school also worked hand and hand with parents to meet all the child's needs. The school also offered various programs to help students develop their learning capability. The class sizes were small and allowed for one on one teaching time with teachers. Tutors were also available for those who needed extra help. The highschool also offered many AP classes for seniors looking to get a head start on their college careers. The faculty and staff at global concepts charter school showed that they cared about the students safety and enforced and followed strict bullying guidelines to make sure everyone felt welcomed at the school.
I like that this school had a lot of diversity among its students. I extremely disliked that, during my school years, there wasn’t a lot of clubs and opportunities for the students. I would like see more AP courses offered again, and more awareness for students about life after high school. As well as programs involving civic engagement, leadership, and community outreach.
