The reviews are mixed when it comes to Crown Charter School with more parents providing negative comments; however, others are very pleased with the success of their children. Some parents are excited with the grades and social activities their child is enjoying at school. A few parents expressed concerns that their child was making excellent grades at this school, but when moved to another school was behind in all subjects especially math which was very disappointing.
Many parents agreed with the fact that children are behind in most subjects along with another issue that parents are not allowed in the classroom even to volunteer. On the other hand, when you review the AIMS testing scores of students at Crown Charter School compared to students across the state, these negative comments seem to be misinformed. In order to ensure you choose the school that is best for your child, it would be in your best interest to talk with teachers, other parents, and the administration to learn more about the curriculum and test scores.
