Sports Leadership & Management (Slam) Charter Middle School Reviews

I would say for charters schools it is average. The biggest problem is the rotating staff. They have a lot of staff changes each year. The behavior is the second worst issue. My son was hurt by another student in class while the teacher didn’t notice. Another mom told me her son was walking down the hall and someone threw a cell phone at his head, causing a deep cut. I eventually pulled my kids from there and sent them back to CCSD. I would say that compared to some of the middle and high schools in CCSD slam is worlds better but if you are zoned for a decent school, go there. They will have consistent staff and way more resources and funding than charter schools. Charter schools really depend on parents to survive. They need parents to pay for uniforms, field trips, supplies, volunteer requirements, pay for lunch.
It’s just a makeshift school that puts on a good face but doesn’t run very effectively or efficiently.

I have been attending SLAM academy since the seventh grade, and I am currently a senior. I have very little to complain about besides the poor treatment towards students by administrators and occasionally staff. They have a sense of superiority and very little to offer. Not to mention the math department is the worst I have ever seen in my entire high school career. I was once left without an Algebra 2 teacher for an entire school year, and was forced to learn the subject on my own considering the substitute knew little to no math. The school has offered me a decent learning experience, a few great teachers who I will never forget even after graduation, and decent counselors who have done their jobs in making sure we are up to date on our senior year events, activities, and dual enrollment classes. It is an average school and would only recommend it for diversity and an average highs school experience.
What I like about slam is how nice most of my teachers are, and how some teachers are willing to help and talk whenever it is needed. One thing I would change is the parent involvement because there is not as many events that parents can go.
