Academy for Business and Leadership Education Reviews

Horrible learning environment  

By , a Parent on

Very Poor quality of education provided by this school. It seems like the students are allowed to take charge of the class, and disrupt the learning environment. In my opinion, I think the students were bribed with Kindle Fires for enrolling. Which are no longer offered to new students. By receiving these devices, the parents were lead to believe their child would be receiving a better and higher quality education. When in fact it is just the opposite. The internet isn't filtered giving students access to inappropriate material on the web, and the ability to chat on Facebook during class time. I have reported to administration providing screen shots of inappropriate conversations taking place on Face book during the school day. Nothing was done, nor has it stopped. When I asked about a more appropriate online social networking site that is used by other St. Johns County Schools allowing communicating between students and teachers. I got no answers. I've contacted the County and was told that these charter schools are supposed to follow the same guidelines as our public schools, but their isn't anyone to enforce it. How is this possible, and at who's expense.
