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 Power Center Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Power Center Academy Reviews
Power Center Academy is a great school. They provide accelerated learning and produce scholars prepared for academic success and college. The environment is very structured and safe. The administration and support staff are very helpful and accessible.
It does prepare you for college.
Power Center Academy is not the best school. You should send your child somewhere else. The school is very strict. They have lots of projects due on the same day. Also, they have homework added on top of that. They also have holiday projects to do over the holiday. Therefore, I recommend not to send your child to Power Center Academy.
I think the school started out a wonderful school. Lately you can't tell the difference between the teachers and the students. The academics are good. The culture is getting bad. Some teachers are a catalyst for bullying and peer problems. Information is not given to parents in the same manner that we were accustomed to. I think since the accolades have come, the directions are changing.
