By far one of the greatest charter schools, My experience was like no other the people are very nice nonjudgmental as well as the staff very easy to get along with people there. The teacher and staff really motivated and helped students to pursue their goal they really pushed students to graduate, come to school and get their grades up, do their work and starting think about their future after high school. I love the fact that students get an opportunity to graduate at a faster pace and take college classes that are very useful for college. Peoria Accelerated High School offers many opportunities some many not know about. It was a great experience for me I only just wish that they offered sports like they used to that would be much more convenient for students to get involved besides the clubs that are already being offered. !

The teachers at Peoria Accelerated High School for the most part are great. They try to help students individually, offer after school tutoring, time to make up work, and reteach lessons on Friday to students who missed school or didn't understand the lesson when it was taught. They try to incorporate technology as much as possible and assign group or partner projects to get students to understand more. They also change seating arrangements throughout the year to get you met and socialize with other people. Usually the assign your seat next to someone who can help you or someone who you can help.

The students give the teachers a hard time but they handle it well, they talk to them individually and still give the students opportunities to correct their actions. They never give up on students, even to the students who slack off and don't really pay attention. The teacher do their best to encourage students to do their work and graduate.
School accepted all students. Students that need second or third chances at improving their graduating chances. Several online classes that were extremely easy. Missing school didn't ruin your grades. As long as you did good on your tests and homework teachers would let you be.
