View Park Preparatory Accelerated Charter High School opened in 2003 to offer students in 9th through 12th grades with an accelerated school model that focuses on a college prep curriculum. The student body is predominantly African American.
Along with core subjects, the school offers a variety of activities, clubs, and events throughout the year.
Students expressed just how great the teachers and staff are in encouraging students to do their best and achieve success to reach their goals. Some students expressed the school is very boring until you reach your senior year when the pressure is on. Some parents stated the teachers are amazing while others were not fond of all teachers. A few students stated that the school is a bit disorganized but is still a great school. A large number of students are disappointed with the clubs, sports, and activities offered.
The Academic Performance Index declined 1 point to 700. Some parents were not happy with this score and stated that they are talking with administration to improve the score.
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 below state averages in all grade levels and all subjects. Parents are in touch with teachers and administration to learn how to improve these percentages.
The California High School Exit Exam tests 10th graders mastering skills in English language arts and mathematics. The percentages of students passing the English exam were 84% with the state average at 83% while in math 90% passed with the state at 84%. Parents and students alike were very pleased to see these percentages.
The school is providing a fair education; however, due to the low percentages of students passing the California Standards Tests, it would be a good idea to talk with teachers and administration before enrolling your child in the school.
