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 Athenian Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Athenian Academy had 8 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Athenian Academy Reviews
My child did not thrive at this school. I found it very unorganized and the building needs some changes. Playground falling down. Most of all I don't feel like my child got a good education.I felt like the focus of the school was all about behavior. And their 3 R club. I would get more reports about behavior than her actual grades. We did better at main stream public school. Oh! and the building smells.
I didn't like anything about this school. enroll with caution!
Bullying is not seen and not heard in this school. Where are the teachers and other authorities when class changes? At gym time? coach turns a deaf ear and pretends he didnt hear anything. Think a smaller school and class would make a difference? Not so
We love this school, the staff is great!
I attended the June 20, 2011 board meeting and it confirmed my decision to remove my children from the school. The lack of leadership is a disgrace. My children forfeited one year of their education attending this school & are now left undernourished academically. I have over 42 pages of facts to prove my statements and wish I would have done my homework prior to enrolling them in this school. I give them and F grade mostly due to the concerns I've brought forward to the school leader that fell on deaf ears.
I hope that many of you who are considering placing their children in this school, or presently have children in this school, will attend the school board meeting Monday, June 20, 2011 at 7 p.m. I think you need to have this information in order to make an educated decision about your child's future education
Be a name, not a number! It's time that this best kept secret got out! Athenian Academy charter school (free) has a lot to be proud of. "A" rated school. AYP. FCAT: 1 of only 9 schools in the district that showed an increase last year in the number of students performing at grade level or above in both math and reading at all grade levels except one. Greek & Spanish taught daily from kindergarten up. Solid school leadership (principal- Kathy Manrique). Governed by local board (no longer Leona group). Caring, communicative teachers. K-8. Sibling priority. Uniforms. Partial busing. A great hybrid between public & private school without the religious curriculum & expensive tuition. So how do I know all of this? My child is a first grader at Athenian Academy. But don't just take my word for it, schedule a tour & come see for yourself. FYI, I'll see you at the PTA meetings, we're busy fundraising for smart boards & we're always looking for involved parents like you! Best of luck with your schooling decision (been there!) Isn't it awesome to have another option besides public or private? Charter schools offer a unique option indeed!
