Math, Civics & Sciences Charter School Reviews

My overall experience with Mathematics Civics & Science Charter School was "so-so." I started attending this school in the seventh grade. When I first got there I thought, "hey, this might be a really good school." The academics became less and less of what really challenged me. This school could easily improve on their curriculum and the teachers that they hire.

I would say that the 12 years I've spent at the Math, Civics and Sciences Charter School have been enriching and somewhat critical for my overall character. I have spent the majority of my time there wondering what my future would have in store for me, and with the help of some teachers and friends, I found that I could take many avenues to success. This school has provided me and my peers with the resources we need to get to and through college. This is a very important thing to note. Not only that, but the policies enforced by the administration staff ensure the safety of every student in attendance. I find that my time in the school is almost never wasted with elephantine interruptions or distractions. Of course the school has some flaws, such as the small size creating traffic in the halls all day and a few rowdy students here and there. But, as far as schools go, this one is a real shining example of ample opportunities.
I like my academy most, which is Computer Technology. This is what I Would like to major in, in college. The school overall isn’t that bad it’s a very safe environment but there’s a slight learning curve. Definitely needs more college prep classes and more sports opportunities for high school students rather than just basketball.
