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.

la Amistad Love & Learning Academy Reviews
This educational facility prepares students from various socioeconomic backgrounds. I feel fortunate to work there. The mission of this facility supports student development and success academically and socially. Some challenges are present, however, I believe that when challenges arise, so should strength. As an advocate for students served, this center does its very best for those served.
Do NOT attend la Amistad Love & Learning Academy. The school administrators wrote the reviews below to give a false impression of the school. La Amistad pre-k, starting on March 4th 2013 is no longer a full time program. The reason is because the parents refused to be bullied. In the beginning of the school year for 2012-2013, parents were asked to provide school supplies, which each parent provided and the school documented. Later that same school year, the school administrators called a meeting asking parents to give another $200 per student. When parents ignored this request, [content removed by School Finder Review Team] called a meeting on February 23, 2013 where he threatened the parents to pay or the school will no longer be a full time program. No parents were allowed to speak during this meeting he called it an â��information giving meetingâ��. On February 28th, 2013 an email was sent to parents demanding that you come to the school in person and pay $200 or your child will be forced to go to school half day. The parents that pay the fine are provided another campus where the pre-k students can attend full-time. The schools administrators discriminate, bully, harass parents constantly under the disguise of "parent partnership". How long will this continue?
