I love SSCPS! The education is very good. The students are respectful and cognizant of one another. Everyone is kind and hardworking and always put in their best effort. There are no cliques and everyone is in almost every "group". Easily one of the best schools when it comes to both the students interacting with one another as well as teachers being well educated and giving the students the best learning opportunity possible. Overall, I would recommend SSCPS to anyone interested in attending a Charter. The staff is very helpful and give you a very smooth and easy transition regardless of what year you join the school.

This school is mediocre at best. There is very little variety in terms of choosing one's schedule. For example, for my senior year, the only math classes available are APs or one math class that does not have an honors level. This practically forces those that do not want to get standard credit, but honors credit, to take an AP course. Also, there are no electives at this school. There is a block in the day known as workshop, where one gets to pick one subject, such as art or music, and work on it throughout the year. There are no traditional music or art classes at this school. Also, one space in the high school area utilizes filing cabinets as walls. So, when I am trying to concentrate on my work, I can hear every other class in the area. I am not satisfied with my school.
SSCPS has a great sense of community. The diversity of students from different towns and backgrounds was great. The teachers, guidance and administrative staff were so supportive. The opportunities that were available were great because of the smaller size of the school.
