Larchmont Charter School Reviews

Larchmont Charter School is an incredibly special school. the teachers are dedicated to basing their curriculum around current events and social issues without forcing their own bias on to students. Larchmont creates a safe space for students to truly express themselves and therefore breeds activism, acceptance and involvement in the community. teachers make themselves extremely available to students in a diligently professional way that enable students to feel comfortable to both ask questions and provide answers in group discussions, which happen quite often. one negative thing i would say about the school, however, is that the administration is very disorganized.

The elementary schools are good but after that it goes down hill. The elementary parents do almost if the fundraising and volunteer work and the. They get to Selma and are so disappointed. All the magic is gone. The hard workers, the girls, the smartest kids, the rich families, strong families of all types leave in droves. Everything declines Garden, library, art, academics, and mostly responsive admin.
I have attended Larchmont since second grade and I can say that I am glad that I chose to stay. Of course, like every other school, Larchmont has its up and downs but this school has provided me with so much more that i could ever imagine. It has helped me build my confidence and social skills as well as find comfort and almost a home-y feel within. As a low income student, the school also makes opportunities very accessible. The teachers are also a delight and incredibly intelligent. Yes, favoritism is prominent but the reason as to why you might attend a smaller school is to be able to interact and befriend your teachers in order to gain all the knowledge you can. If you much rather want to learn through lectures from aloof teachers, go someplace else. Nevertheless, Larchmont still lacks of many things as it is still developing but faculty has recently been taking action especially things regarding the recent horrifying events within our nation and I very much appreciate that.
