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 Capitol City Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Capitol City Academy Reviews
I go to this school is a good school but they made some mistakes because the name is columbus bilingual academy and they dont even teach spanish thats why alot of people left i recomend my teachers that next year they should teach spanish next year i know they will have more kids but even thow everything you dear parents should send your child to this school is really good and it helps students learn more than whhat they should so when they move to another grade they could now alot:)
Capitol City Academy is currently open under the name of Columbus Bilingual Academy...has also had other names previously...every few years or so the name changes...
I had my daughter enrolled last year, and she lost what Spanish she had learned spending the summer in Mexico - This year they aren't even teaching Spanish anymore, because they are under academic emergency and at risk of losing all their funding and having to shut-down...or at least change the schools name again to get new funding - over half the staff (teachers and principal) were replaced this year after such dismal test scores came back and qualifications were reviewed....
The concept of a bilingual school is a very good idea. The only problem I have is its location, unfortunately the school is too far and it would take my kids over 1 hour in the bus. I would like to take advantage of the school, so if there were special courses to learn spanish that the school could offer perhaps on weekends, afternoons or summer break I would participate
