The leadership at Twin Cities Academy needs serious work. Although it is a charter school, they do not use that to their best advantage to strive towards positive change. Many changes happened over the course of my four years there and every year there was at least a 50% turnover rate of high school teachers. Overall, TCA has a distinct lack of support for students.

Twin cities was a great and normal school! it provided many lessons and opportunities for myself and my peers. Twin cities academy education wise is very good, school is a top priority and it is there main goal to make sure every student is prepared for college! The worse thing about the school is the school lunch.
It was fine, would not recommend for high school. The school itself was fine but there was no meeting up outside of school, no sports games after school, no good school play to see, nothing.
