Community ratings & reviews

  • (3 years ago)

    Some fine work done by staff is undermined by a culture of amateurism at management level. There is no coherent overall vision for education or behavior here; the closest they come is a pride in some aspects of community more suited to a youth club than a high school. One example of this is that the school regularly closes at short notice to allow the students to attend impromptu demonstrations instead of classes.

    Arise is a small school this help student get all the attention they need as far as help with college homework and basis information about college. My son is very pleased in this school and he is treated somewhat as an adult.

    This is a project based school and it teaches kids stuff they need to know in a funner and more fundamental way than other schools. The staff really do care about the kids and about their future and they offer as much help as they can offer. They offer college trips so we can have an idea and decide what college we would like to attend. They also offer so many opportunities.
