    I officiated a basketball game at Davidson on 11/21/2013 I was impressed by the courtsey and sportman ship displayed by the girls team and their coach pass along a word of praise to them

    I am an eighth grader at Sugar Creek Charter School and I believe that Sugar Creek provides an excellent learning environment for us kids.Our school is a great learning environment because it teaches us not only things that can get you in college but also things that can get you places in life.At Sugar Creek we have a class based on character. Our character classes teaches you about real life things such as poverty and how even to act in a professional way when getting a job to prepare us for the future as well as the present.Our school builds character while building our minds to shape tomorrow's generation.I like that we are able to get some of our high school credits while in middle school most colleges look for those kind of rates. Sugar creek charter school is a excellent learning academy that teaches students a variety of subjects while building their characters and preparing them for the future.In conclusion I recommend Sugar creek charter school to you as an excellent learning experience for your kids for grades Kindergarten to 8th

    I am an eighth grader currently attending Sugar Creek Charter School. I have been attending Sugar Creek since 2010. I like this school because it provides many options like 2 high school courses Geometry and Algebra 1. I am currently taking Geometry. The teachers at Sugar Creek are nice and understanding. If you have a problem like bullying they will get to the bottom of it. This school makes you feel safe and secure 8 hours every day. Another thing I like about Sugar Creek is that they have half days. No school in CMS has half days. Lots of charter schools don't have transportation but Sugar Creek does. We are different than other schools. No other school will give you a iPod touch for making double 4's or and iPad for quadrupedal 4's. CMS school won't take you on field trips when you don't get all A's or no infraction or referrals. You should MOST DEFINITELY send your child to Sugar Creek. Thanks

    I am an eigth grader currently attending SCCS and i have been attending Sugar Creek Since '10 . Overall this school is OK. Some of the teachers are very caring and understanding. I am a straight A student and currently taking high school geometry. Last year i took high school algebra 1. My old geometry teacher Mr. Supia was always pushing us to study and do work but then he left. Now our teacher Mrs.Biggerstaff just doesnt care what we do. Half of the class is talking and the other is on there phone. Only (Maybe) 2% of the class is actually paying attention. Its very hard to learn when others aroungd me are being disruptive. Also the principle is NEVER at school . This school does very much so LACK LEADERSHIP. But other than that the school is a 3/5 star school and i Would Recommend It )

    My son and I really love this school. His grades and his performance have improved greatly since leaving CMS. I recommend this school to anyone that has any concern about their childs education in CMS.

    I am a parent of SCCS for 4 year I have two kids there. I really enjoyed 4 years. My daugther was very shy person after working with Ms Fischer her 1st year of 1st grade. She blossomed and was not afraid to wear her glasses. Also my son gets all 4's every year on the EOG Test. Therefore I am very please and honor to have my childrean in a learning safe and healthy environment. I do recommend other families. Thank you Wanchia Family

    I have two children who attend SCCS. This school lacks leadership. Mrs. Turner the director/CEO need an attitude refresher course. She lacks professionalism in many ways. I do think this school would be better with all new administrators.

    I have a student who graduated from SCCS in 2009 and took high school algera. And I still have three children still there one who is in the 7th grade and take high school algebra. I think that the children at SCCS is very good school whne it comes to caring for the children education.

    I have 3 kids attending SCCS. My eldest is 13 and he is taking a high school math course. I like the way the test and keep you advanced. I can honestly say that my kids are learning and comprehending above & beyond their current grade levels in comparsion to other kids (in other school areas). They are very much advanced. Also they do not tolerate to much distraction or interruptions which is good. Nip it in the bud at the beginning and have a better school academic atmosphere. All of my kids will be ready for high school and beyond....

    My experience w/ Sugarcreek Charter school was extremely poor. There was a total lack of communication between the staff & parents no method of appealing unilateral decisions & no system of checks & balances put in place to monitor the fairness of decisions. My children will not be returning & I would urge any parent to think twice before enrolling their child in that school. The attitudes of both the teachers & administration is poor which negatively impacts the students ability to learn.

Overall this is a wonderful school and i hope your children enjoy it as much as i did.

    My children have attended the CMS system and I find this charter to much better meet their needs-academically & socially. I find that the teachers (at SCCS) place more emphasis on the child's learning ability & potential & tend not to judge based solely on behavior. This was one of the flaws I found too many time in CMS schools. Teachers tend to be overwhelmed and would 'lump' the children in a category of 'difficult-learners' bad behaved and just plain 'poor.'

    My child have gone to SCCS since she was 5 years old. SCCS is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled. The teachers take an interest in your child's progression. They welcome parental input and the teachers and staff are available to parents with questions all the time. My child has progressed very well attending SCCS and I do not think that she would have done as well at a Mecklenburg school. I am quite pleased with this school and encourage other parents to enroll their child here. The school would welcome more diversity amongst its students.
