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. See Antioch Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
A school's Academic Performance Index (API) is a scale that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is calculated from the school's performance in the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program. The state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet.
Antioch Charter Academy had an API growth score of 815 in 2012. California uses the Academic Performance Index (API) to measure annual school performance and year-to-year improvement. Antioch Charter Academy's 2012 base score was 840, however the school did meet its 2012 school-wide growth target.

Antioch Charter Academy Reviews
This is the best school!
I am a student from Antioch Charter Academy, it is the best school that your child could go to. I don't know what the other parent was talking about because my family has been here since the start of this school. I am in 7th grade and this school has taught me so much. I love it a lot and I think your children would too!Just think... Would a bad student really take there time out of the day to write this review if ACA was really a bad school?
used to be good
I have a few kids that went through this school and have gone on to do great things and were great students in high school and college. However, the program has changes drastically with the new teachers/administrators to the extent that it isn't even close to the great school it once was-in fact it is CRAP! My last child will be graduating from here soon and I do not recommend it to people that ask me about it. If they would go back to their roots and retrain their new teachers, it may have a chance to survive. They preach positive discipline as a means for our children however the teachers don't follow it themselves and it makes children confused and frustrated.
Used to be the best school in town, now...it is just as mediocre as the rest of the public schools...and it is a darn shame!
