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 Dayspring Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Dayspring Academy had 14 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Dayspring Academy Reviews
My daughter and grand daughter both go to Dayspring. The teachers and staff are fantastic. The school encourages the children to excel. The children receive a private school standard of education in a charter school. Parental interaction is achieved through volunteer activities (15 hrs per year per household). Manors, Ethics’, and Character are taught by teacher and staff through example. Artistic interests are encouraged and supported through plays and musicals. My ten year old daughter said "summer is an interruption of the opportunity of education."
DaySpg Academy should be VERY proud of their Musical Theatre group AND their instructor, Colleen Hooker. As the Entertainment Chair for the Suncoast Arts Fest, I must convey our thanks for an outstanding performance! I wish we could have given them more performance time, but our mission is to promote the arts, both performing and visual, for ALL youth in Pasco County. Kudos to all!

My kids have been going to Dayspring for 5 years. They have thrived in school. Principle, Teachers, staff are all top notch! They all care about the student and it shows in every aspect of their jobs. We are blessed to be going to a wonderful school with such great educators!
It's fine if your child is completly independant and has no problems with academics. However, If your child struggles or has any type of deficeit , You will want to look alsewhere as this school does not make any effort to help strugging students. I'm not sure why this survey asks us to rate them on special ed resources as there are none.
