Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School is a great place for students that want to be challenged and involved. Our small class sizes mean that teachers are able to work with each student individually, and it is very easy to get involved in the numerous extra-curriculars here. Many new programs are also being added every year, and I'm sad that I will be graduated before some of them are developed. Overall, Twin Peaks is a good community with challenging academics.

We had 3 children attend Twin Peaks. For the most part, their experiences were excellent. One of our children had not fit in at any of the other 3 schools she attended, but made friends here. Students in general are about as kind-hearted as you will find. Since it is a smaller school, there are less choices for sports as well as classes in general. The values of the families involved are strong and the administration truly cares about the students as people.
Twin Peaks is an excellent newer school that is already very academic and constantly improving. Last year, 2015 to 2016 the school was not at its peak. But at the end of this last year new and better staff were hired, and now the school is quickly improving in every aspect. We also had the first team ever in track and field to qualify for state finals, and academics are improving as new and better teachers are being hired. Twin Peaks Charter academy is quickly becoming a mature and academic high school.
