Academia Avance Charter School Reviews

By a Current Student on

This school is the best school you would want to be in. This school helps you in life it also helps you with college prep.

By a Parent on

This school is not worth going to. My child went to this school, and the teachers did not even have a degree to teach. They bribe us to join the school, they do everything in the community to get money and recognition. There is a lot of favortism in this school. (Edited for content by staff.)

By a Current Student on

This School has grown so much since, and is Excelling in all subjects with very high test scores and gives students the highest attention and dedication. I would recommend this school to students who wish to attend college, as this is a college preparatory school with all the right stuff to get you ready to advance in life.
