Plymouth Scholars Charter Academy Reviews
Rating 3.25 out of 5 8 reviews
I have been extremely pleased with PSCA since my son started 6th grade there this year. The teachers are wonderful, the administrative staff is helpful and the quality of work expected is up to my expectations.
I used to go to this school. Last year was, thankfully, the end of middle school for me. In 6th grade, I was bullied and there was so much drama in the public school I went to. My mom wanted me to go to Plymouth scholars for a fresh start, where I would finally make some friends and get the academics I needed. I realized my predictions were very wrong. You get bullied if you aren’t popular or aren’t the smartest person in the class. I was also harassed in a terrible manner at this school. Turnover is high. Some teachers are rude and middle school has no freedom. The academics and lower-school programs are good, just make sure to NOT send your children to the middle school.
I have two sons that attend PSCA. While some consider the work "rigorous" my wife and I feel our boys are being pushed right to where they need to be. No more, that is neither feels "behind" and no less, that is, neither feels "bored". The teachers and students come from diverse backgrounds and are all very supportive. the parents are great too, except in the drop off/pick up line... But it beats 45 minutes on the bus.
School has not been the same since the original principle left. Very weak administration currently. Average elementary, below average middle school. Kids will struggle in high school.
Plymouth Scholars is a very great school. The work is challenging but the teachers are beyond supportive. Although, the work load is intense it is clear that it is all for the best and it shows in the student bodies test scores. The teachers show that they truly care about their students while the students show great promise. Any child that attended, attends. or will attend will be strongly prepared for any high school and college they choose to go to.
The middle school doesn’t have enough activities for themselves, or enough clubs, or enough freedom, it isn’t like a normal middle school at all. Though, there is almost no bullying and academics are high. The cafeteria food is horrible.
What I liked about Plymouth Scholars is the fact that your whole experience is about preparing you for high school or even college. They have certain electives you can attend that will prepare you, for example College Prep.
