Larchmont Charter School Reviews

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.

Larchmont Charter focuses on how its’ students are taught the importance of education, but also the fundamentals of society. It’s a very diverse school and supports students from all kinds of backgrounds also because it's small the students are well looked after and have strong relationships with each other and the staff. It receives funding publicly through fundraisers made by the help of the community, families, and staff members. Sometimes the students will create/lead a fundraiser of their own which helps them grow in both knowledge and skinship between one another. This school has given me the guidance for being apart of the community and how I can positively contribute to it. The things I would want to see change are probably the scheduling for events, classes, and other activities because it can be a little frustrating at times, but overall it is a fantastic school.
I am a freshman at Larchmont Charter School, so, of course, my perspective and general understanding is understandably not to such a standard as many others, but I believe I've garnered enough information about the school so as to write this review. My time here has been extraordinarily unpleasant. Many of the students are rude, most of the teachers utilize sharp favoritism, and it is all to clear that the bias of certain teachers influences the way they grade their class. I have seen little to nothing done about bullying at the school, and teachers simply let it pass by if they hear it. The opportunities for artistic expression is also extremely limited; I play piano, and I feel my hopes and dreams playing the instrument have no fruition here. If you value your child, send them to a more developed school.
