Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Is the greatest school. Teachers are so well trained on teaching. Is amazing seeing my kindergarten daughter reading like a first grader. This is her 2 nd year going to 1st grade. Because she able to read so much it make so much easier when it comes to number story on math problem. And don’t know how teachers did it but very successful on teaching math. My daughter is capable to solve number story problem. Addition and subtraction know very well. She came home shared what she learned from science. Is just exceeded my expectation. I am so glad my daughter has a seat here SA and she is very happy in SA. Communication between parents and teachers is #1 , teachers replied to your e-mail or text same day. Very satisfied parents.

Advice for parents. Before sending your child to this school. Please do some research. Maybe start asking parents who have their kids going there. It looks like they have problem keeping teachers for more than 2 months. My kids very often get a new teacher.

Overall Rating:

This is a horrible school. They are just another one of the failing education system. This is coming from a Success Academy student. They cram information into your head, expecting you to memorize it and then take a test every month. This too much. I don't understand why people think Success Academy is all that. We have very long days and lots of homework. Why would I want to be the smartest girl in the school and be unhappy? Does knowledge matter?? Success Academy doesn't allow us to just be kids and enjoy ourselves. The teachers are also hypocrite because they tell us not to eat junk food and they take it away when next minute they are eating junk food.Eva if you read this please shorten school days so we can strengthen our imagination and creativity. Shorten the amount of homework because life is not about how good your grammar can be and if you know that mitochondria is the power house of the cell. Life is about seizing the moment and understanding that you only live once. I want to become a ballerina when I grow up so why don't we have less time for school work and more time for our passions. Please listen to this feedback/review and share it to anyone you think would like this.
