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 Harvest Prep School/Seed Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Harvest Prep School/Seed Academy Reviews
This is the most unorganized and poorly run school I have ever seen. The administrators seem only to care about how their test scores will look in newspapers, and not about the individual children or staff members... Please do not take funding away from properly run public schools by sending your child here.
I enjoy Harvest and how it helps my child to feel good about being herself and an African American student and that learning is essential to what life (or society) has to offer and a key component to some form of success.
There are areas to me that could improve such as an overall school type of environment like physical education all year round, other educational activities (music, arts) on a more complete scale, and education field trips that have reduced over the three years my child had attended.
I also don’t like the administrative quirks which I feel the school possesses. Last minute announcements, certain office procedures that are not complimentary to certain parents. Overall I think the school is a great starting point for young African American students to get a leg up on who they are and education.
I am a firm believer in understanding who you are it helps with self confidence and self worth. I missed this in my early learning years at school, fortunately it was taught in my home.
