10 Parent Reviews for Drew (charles) College Preparatory Academy

I have been tutoring at Charles Drew Preparatory for the past 5 years, and watched this school continue to grow and work hard at improving it's programs. The teachers, Ms. Scott and Ms. Rice-Mitchell keep the kids in line with an iron hand in a velvet glove. Sure, it's difficult to watch over the large ...  Read more

All four of my children have gone to this school; I have one remaining and I can say the teachers and principal are awesome. I know the scores could have been better last year but we as parents need to do our job as well. We cannot just rely soley on the teachers. We need to do our part when our children ...  Read more

From the teaching perspective, it is a great environment. You are reminded often of the hard work you are doing. From the learning perspective, I see students learning and engaged throughout the building. Little is needed to say when the API is 710. There is so much support for your child at this school, ...  Read more

This school has come a long way in the past 3 years! Ever since we became a Dream School the test scores have risen and risen. The teachers hold high expectations for our kids, and our children are succeeding!

I'm very optimistic about the school this year. It's much calmer and quieter and it has a really good feel. We have a wonderful music teacher and an outstanding team of teachers and support staff. Our principal is fantastic--she provides strong leadership but is calm and gentle with the students. She ...  Read more

This is a very sad display of how SFUSD has destroyed potential in the public schools. The teachers have been excellent but not well supported by the system, community or parents....very sad indeed.

The 2001-2002 school year was a disgrace. The principal was a disgrace and the test scores were a disgrace. However i continued to keep my daughter in that school for the 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 school year because they changed the principal and the test scores are working there way back up the charts. ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
