Uncharted Shores Academy opened in 2007 offering families an alternative to traditional school settings. The school offers a combination of home and classroom-based education for students in kindergarten through 8th grades. The focus is on supporting the family to provide daily on site classes with a focus on character development as well as multi age education allowing students to be grouped by their academic and social development instead of by their age.
The opinion of the school differs according to which group of parents you talk with; some state the teachers and staff are excellent while other believe the teachers are unqualified. Most parents on the other hand, agree that teachers do work with students on an individual basis but complain that the school does not offer any athletics, art, or music programs. Students like the chance to go to school at home and the various projects at the school, but would like to participate in sports.
The Academic Performance Index increased 74 points to 702. The statewide goal is 800. Parents are pleased with the huge jump in score but are not very happy that the school only has an API statewide rank of 1.
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 met the state averages or was below except for 82% of 5th graders passed the science exam with the state at 60% and 75% of 7th graders passed the English exam with the state average at 62%.
It would be a good idea to learn more about the curriculum and talk with parents that have students attending the school to ensure the learning environment is the right fit for your family.
