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 Multisensory Learning Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Multisensory Learning Academy had 19 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Oregon average is 20 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Multisensory Learning Academy Reviews
I couldn't be happier with my experience at MLA. While all schools have challenges, our family has only had wonderful things occur at this school. I would highly recommend it to anyone who asked.
This school has done amazing things for my child. Kids are given individual attention and the mood and atmosphere are always positive and happy. The staff goes out of their way to make sure kids are succeeding and families are happy.
The school holds fun events for the kids and is a very safe environment. My child has thrived at this school. Administration works with everyone to meet the needs of the school.
My children have attended MLA for years and I have found them to be focused on students needs. They are open about reduced state funding (which effects everyone) and as parents we help fund-raise to help in any way we can. It is our school and our family is proud to be there. I am disturbed that someone would post such a negative review. MLA has always had an open door when it comes to budget and policy. Ask questions and see for yourself before judging. Sounds like someone didn't get what they wanted... and feels the need to vent.
Overworked and underpaid teachers. Teachers who cannot spell. Administrators who tell staff they are lucky to have jobs while gossiping about staff behind their backs. Disorganization. Outright lies. Financial crisis. All this can be yours at MLA.
