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 at the Farm's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Academy at the Farm had 16 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

To comment on the previous post:
They do find themselves worthy of upgrading from modular buildings. However, they choose to use the funds they raise, on average $200,00 a year, on the students and meeting their needs. They deem them more important than the outside appearance.
The teachers are truly there because they care for the development of each individual child. They teach the whole child!
I have never thought twice about waiting my turn for this school. It was one of the best decisions I have made as a parent!
This is the worst school I have dealt with! We came from a very good charter school and I can safely tell you that Academy at the Farm is not where you want to put your child. This is the type of school that makes you put your house back on the market!
When you tour the school, you get the impression that it is a new charter school; however, I discovered that in 10 years they haven't proven themselves worthy of funding to move out of modular units. After having dealt with their unprofessional ways, I completely understand. Please look elsewhere, so your child can get a quality education from qualified & caring teachers!!
I love the Academy at the Farm! We just finished our first year. The teachers are very caring and quite experienced. The new director/principal is wonderful! Very happy!!
Academy at the Farm is the best school I have ever sent my children to. The teachers actually care about their grades.
The is the worst school I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. I am more than happy to put my child back in private school.
