My child is a 6th grade student at PACS and she loves the school. She has been a student there for 3 years and we are very happy with the education and safety of the school.

The school is in a restructuring phase and I have seen an amazing turn around process. The new administration is very competent. My 2nd grade child has been enrolled at PACS since kindergarten. I am very pleased with the small class sizes and extra tutoring time built into the day for reading and math.

I have been shopping around for a school to put my 1st grade student in for a month or so.... I am very happy to have found Phoenix Advantage Charter School. The teachers are highly qualified and really know how to teach my child. He loves it there!

I like Phoenix Advantage Charter School, this is my third year here and I love it. My brother and sister are also attend Phoenix Advantage Charter School. This is not just a school but I would like to think of it as my second family. The teachers are great, they always ready to help me when I need help. The students here are friendly and respectful to each others. I especially love my class this year because I have learned so much and my teacher is extremely helpful. She does not want to give up on us, she believes in us and care for our future.

I transferred my students to this school because it was closer to home. I like the fact that classes are small and the teachers are able to have the one on one with the students.

You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
