City Honors College Preparatory Charter School opened in 2010 to provide students with a college preparatory curriculum that ensures that every student will possess the necessary knowledge as well as social skills to enter a four year college or to join the workforce upon graduation. On average, the school has 235 students enrolled per year in grades 9th through 12th.
Along with core subjects, City Honors College Preparatory Charter School provides extra curricular activities including painting, drama, and dance. Sports offered are volleyball, gymnastics, tennis, and physical education classes. Other programs include yearbook, community service, science & technology, student council, and newspaper.
Parents are happy with the college courses and some of the teachers. Both students and parents expressed that not all of the teachers are as professional as they would like to see. Most students are not happy with the Honors Program but are glad that college courses are available. The major complaint is the lack of extra curricular activities, sports, electives, and student clubs.
The Academic Performance Index showed a decline in academic growth from 793 to 788. The California Standards Tests is used to learn if students are mastering core subjects. The various tests are given to 2nd through 11th grades in English, grades 2nd through 7th are given tests in math, and science tests are administered to students in grades 5th, 8th, and 10th, while history tests are given to students in 8th and 11th grades. The percentage of students passing the exams was mainly below average across the board. There were a few percentages above average or close to average mostly in English Language Arts.
The California High School Exit Exam tests 10th graders mastering skills in English language arts and mathematics. The percentage of students passing the exit exam was 97% in English Language Arts and 90% in math. This contradicts the percentages seen with the California Standards Tests with 69% of 10th graders passing the English Language Arts exam and 20% passing Algebra I.
It would be a good idea to learn more about the exams since the percentage of students passing were up and down quite a bit from grade level to grade level and course to course. Of course, the best way to make a decision if the school is a good fit for your child is to take a tour and talk with other parents.
