About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

No respect for teachers = poor schooling
The New administration for this school has no respect for their teachers. They impose impossible frivolous requirements without realizing the negative impact this has. The majority of the administration are not teachers themselves and are new to the online teaching world so their ideas and comments come from ignorance.
Instead of embracing the knowledge that many of these teachers have, the administration instead impose their own ill conceived ideas. This has resulted in the majority of the good teachers leaving and the ones that remain are unable to effectively do their jobs.
If you are looking for education do not go here. Look for a place that appreciates its teacher's years of knowledge and love for teaching.
This school has been the biggest inconvenience of my life.
This school is the worst school I have ever been enrolled at. The teachers have treated me with little to no respect. I'm currently in 11th grade and they've only given me freshman classes. When I call and email my student adviser, she does nothing to help me change classes. At all my other schools I have been in honors classes, but this school won't put me in any. To top it all off, if you finish a course early because you're too advanced for it, you're stuck in it. For me, the attendance never lets me submit how many hours and minutes I've been working on things. It's always stuck and 6 hours and 0 minutes every day. The site they use for their math classes has crashed so many times for me causing my grade to drop down to an F. Even though I have submitted all the work 100% correct.
This school doesn't even deserve one star and I'm trying to get out as fast as I can (which is taking a while because no one answers my calls). This school has been the biggest inconvenience of my life.
If I could give it no stars I would
I came to Primavera as a sophmore. I was half a year behind in my courses because I missed some finals at my old school. I quickly became irritated with this school. There were several technical changes that confused not only students, but also teachers. I have been with Primavera for 3 years and I am graduating this spring. I have had 5-6 student advisors in this short time. I am constantly having to get on my teachers about grading my work. Everything, except for projects and discussion boards are automatically graded by the flipswitch program. I do not recommend this school to anyone. They do not treat their students like students. Students are nothing but more money to them. If you are a student 18 and over, they still treat you like a new student who doesnt know anything about their system. Some teachers are wonderful and I would love to have those teachers again, but others are disrespectful and arrogant.
I am a concurrent student with Primavera, and not fond of it. Primavera prides itself on its convenience, but constantly changing policies and systems, along with inconsistent due-dates, makes it far too much of a hassle, especially for someone balancing school and all that that entails and extra classes.
On the other hand, it is an excellent tool for gaining credits. I am using it to get out of High school early, and it serves the purpose of easy credits well.
Primavera has been great to work with. Participating in the casting call was a lot of fun. I highly encourage current students to attend. With the interactions I have had with Primavera so far, it's clear that the students are their number one priority. All you have to do go down to the office and meet their faculty, and you will see what I mean. Great School!
I am 15 years old and a sophomore using Primavera. My mom pulled me out of regular school because my grades were dropping and at home she could make sure my work was being done. I am getting better grades using Primavera and I can get caught up on the credits I'm behind in A LOT faster than I would in school. I like it, it's different. A lot less distractions. But, I do still have some issues with it and my teachers are there to listen to me and help me with them.
I LOVE it!! I am a freshmen, at 14 years old. My teachers are always there to listen to me, and my grades are now higer than ever before :] And I actually have more of a social life than ever now because my school also provides a jillion clubs (I am in Club ASU, Student Government, and Key Club), and I have the most caring, amazing friends I get to meet at the clubs :) Primavera has actually caused me to graduate NEXT December, when I'm 15. Seriously, that is how good it is. I'm too involved with my school because I'm geeky like that ;)
i love it!
