I am very pleased with OPA, their academics, the second language, music, projects, band, and extra curricular programs are awesome. Before OPA we had our kids in a project based charter school and the academics were horrible, there was a lack of everything. We have being at OPA -SOC now for 4 years and was the best decision we ever made for our children. The parents are very involved, the teachers do a excellent job teaching and keep students engaged, the on going communication we have with teachers is excellent. My kids love the school and their teachers.

More parents pull their kids out, then stay. Majority of the founding parents have walked away. Great concept, some great teachers, too much corruption and politics. The Administration has been Shady with money and rule following. It just wasn't worth it. If you are one of the parents who are on the inside, things will be great. If you're not, you likely won't have a say in protecting your child should they need to be. Luckily, I was involved and favored. But I just couldn't stomach watching others get bullied.
I was very pro "OPA" and worked hard to get my son into this school. He attended OPA from 2nd to 5th. For the most part, the academics are very good. Although I'm not sure how they pull that off since every year they have teachers leave the first couple of weeks of school. We started in OPA - SOC's second year. I got to know many of the founding parents, I was very involved. To date, I know more families who have left than have stayed (and this is not due to their children aging out of the school). I can only speak for myself as to why we left. My son was being bullied, no physically but some severe emotional bullying, it was affecting him greatly. I had meetings, I brought in doctor's letters (psychiatrist). I quoted the charter, nothing was done. The school did not seem to care about my son. They are not bad people but with dealing with the founder ripping off the school, the constant teacher turn-over etc. There is no time to deal with problems.
