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 Caprock Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Caprock Academy Reviews

Great school

By a Parent on

Caprock is a great school. My kids come home excited everyday about all the new things they are learning. I wish I would have started both in kindergarten. I feel they are giving my kids a great foundation for when they are adults and are thinking about what they want to do in life. The dress code and rules may be strict, but you know what they are before you choose to enroll your children. I think it helps the kids focus on learning. Great school!

No common sense

By a Parent on

You had to have a closed door session to decide if the girl who shaved her head in solidarity for her friend who had cancer. You should not be allowed to be around children. No common sense.

School Policy

By on

I think it speaks volumes that a school like this would expel a student, and not first give them an exception for such a courageous act as shaving your head for a friend going through chemo. I am a mother to three sons, and grandmother to five and if my nine year old grand daughter did that for me I would reward, not punish her. I feel ashamed of the actions you took. It takes courage folks to go without hair. Lots and lots of courage. I am a stage four cancer patient who has had years of chemo treatments. It is NEVER easy to go without your hair. I don't consider that a distraction, but an act of shear selflessness. She should be awarded something. You not only punished the student, but also the cancer patient by the actions you took. School policies should always allow for exceptions. Humans aren't perfect and neither are school policies. Please undo the damage you have done....quickly.

Some rules should be broken

By on

What a travesty educators commit when they enforce rules obviously never intended to cover unusual situations.  These folks are rule-oriented automatons--students must learn to cope with those moments in life when following a rule or a law or an edict is obviously inappropriate.  I suggest reading Euripedes' MEDEA since they must have missed that in education courses.

Why can

By on

After reading how a girl was told not to come back to school until her hair grew out, I can see no way a child of mine would go there.  And why does the staff want so much "uniformity"?  That seems to go in the face of America's people.  This little girl shaved her head to support another girl with cancer and you kick her out of school?  What is the matter with you!
