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

Pinellas Preparatory Academy Reviews
The teachers as well as staff know how to teach as well mentor the children. Great environment, caring staff.
I LOVE IT im actually a student and im learning at a better level
I had two of my children attend PPA and I was very, very please with the school. All of the staff are wonderful, engaging and efficient at what they do. The teachers are education oriented, as well as being very engaging with every students welfare and there success in the classroom. The Principal is a great man. He looks out for the best interest of the students, parents and staff. He's a great leader and role model for everyone. Being a single mother of three I was very grateful that my two oldest were able to attend PPA. I do wish that the school started at kindergarden thru eighth grades at least. I have a younger child that I'm hoping will get to attend there when he is entering the fourth grade.
We have been so very pleased with Pinellas Prep. The teachers are enthusiastic and focused. The principal is concerned and thoughtful...a terrific leader and mentor. The curriculum is purposeful and engaging. we cannot thank PPA enough for the many gifts they give each day.
