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 Academy of Dover Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Academy of Dover Charter School Reviews
Very bad school
The Principal talked up the school like it was really great. I found out later it was the worst.
Difficult Administration and lazy teachers. Bad food. Cheap playground.
The Principal and Vice Principal are very unprofessional and inconsiderate to parents. They think the world revolves around them and treat parents like trash. If you complain or are critical of the school they encourage you to find your child a new school. The teachers don't communicate well with parents. They don't return calls or emails. If you ask questions about school work they just ignore it. If you complain the Principal won't take it seriously and turns it into a personal matter and a big game. The playground is tiny and has one piece of equipment and 5 swings for the whole school. The school lunch is terrible. If you're looking for a charter school go to Campus Community or stick with Public schooling. They seem more worried about their jobs and keeping a high rating than education and parent communication. There is hardly any diversity. Almost all the kids are Black. I have noticed several signs of racism. By any means don't send you child to this school.
