    My children have been attending for four years. I am very pleased with the outcome.....Keep in minde education is a team effort which includes the teachers school staff peers and the PARENTS! Mrs. Hobbs the parent coordinator does an excellent job and keep the parents informed intuned and in step with what is going on at the school and with the children.....The shortfall is that it is evident that parents aren't being involved at home which is most important.

    Aspire Charter Academy is an awesome school!!! Many of the teachers are young and eager to teach the children. The Kindergarten program is one of thee best around. Definitely worth looking into.
