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

Don't Go Here
I am currently a senior at City Academy, and all I can say about this school is that it is the worst. The grading system is hurting my chances at graduating, more than it is helping. If you miss a single assignment, it fails you for the whole quarter. The faculty is disorganized and not fit for teaching at all. The teaching method most teachers use is the "Here is a packet that I need you to do, but I'm not gonna explain to you how to do it". The building is too small for the amount of people they have. This school is losing money, and they know it. They've really messed up the whole "community" that this school used to have. If you really want to graduate high school or actually have a real high school experience, do not come to this school.
