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.

Cambridge Academy East Reviews
This school is awful. The communication between staff and parents is horrible. They leave their families in the dark about everything unless it directly results in them making money (fundraisers and such).
My child attends Cambridge East. We have attended this school for the past year. The curriculum is great with no complaints on the education my child has received here. Now on to everything else. If you are a parent looking to place your child here let it be known the ALL the BAD reviews on here are dead on. The playing field has 2 sewage leaks coming up on to the field where the kids play. Has not been fixed since we started there. If you have issues or questions what is being said they do not respond and you will always be the bad guy. They will take this out on your child they will never give them the benefit of doubt. The communication does not exist. If you need a response none will be given. You will sit for 30+ min & never talk to the princapal.Every thing is last min. You must pay for lunches in advance which is the day before they r due. They expect you to participate in every fundraiser, their are 4 a month every month and going on at the same time. If your child is new to the school and did not start in kindergarten then your child WILL be singled out amongst the staff and students with no chance to defend them self’s. This School is a NIGHTMARE. We will not return.
I love this school! My children are getting a great education and the teachers offer after school tutoring. I feel like the administration could be a little more proactive and organized but overall, a fantastic school!
I think this school has the potential to be a good school but they have a very unorganized leadership in the school and for being so small, they don't really work with the students and their individual needs. The PTO is 7 parents doing everything with no administration support and the teachers think they do enough without spending more time helping to raise money for their field trips and supplies. Overall it was a frustrating experience and for all the sacrifices parents make to send their children there, it was not worth it!
