Pivot Charter School opened their North Bay campus in 2009 to provide students in 6th through 12th grades with an alternative to traditional school settings. On average, the school has an enrollment of 95 students per year. The school offers a standards based curriculum, which is completely online. However, students can receive support on site when needed or online as well. Students have the opportunity to completely work online or to visit the on site location for some classes. The flexibility allows students to learn at their own pace. This is a blessing for many students that have jobs and like the way they can study and attend school at any time of the day or night.
Along with core subjects, the school does not offer student clubs or sports, which is a major complaint of some of the students. However, the school offers a few extra curricular activities, which include video production, painting, graphic design, and creative writing.
Parents and students alike are very pleased with the curriculum and the caring teachers. Most parents expressed they are thankful for the school as they do not believe their children would have stayed in school if it were not for this school. A few students stated that the lack of sports is the major downside, as they would like to participate in sports like baseball or football.
The Academic Performance Index was 667. The statewide goal is 800.
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 California High School Exit Exam tests 10th graders mastering skills in English language arts and mathematics.
The results of the California Standards Tests and the California High School Exit Exam were not available at the time of this writing.
Since the majority of the results of the exams were not available, it would be a good idea to visit the school and learn more about how many students are graduating before enrolling your child.
