Too many students assigned to a room(30). They lied about school curriculum(Spanish was to be available from grades 6 to 8) Staff, including principal, doesn't return calls. High turn over in teachers. Teachers actually quit during the school year, and aren't permanently replaced. I'm currently waiting ...  Read more

I wouldn't refer this school to anyone. My child attended last year and an 8th grade teacher would never respond to any notes sent. Another 8th grade teacher thought they were the same age as the kids. How are the children supposed to get an education there with adults like that.

The principal and her minions are horrible. This is the most unorganized school I've ever come across. No order, no communication, no principal until about 11 a.m. The children hardly know her. And then there is the troll who does the morning announcements-and that is it. Dr. Brawner, don't you ...  Read more

This school is horrible and it is not teaching my daughter anything. She complains all the time about the students and the teachers. This school needs a real upgrade with their staff.

Wakisha Charter School has an excellent academic curriculum. This curriculum also includes 3 years of spanish. I enjoy the faculties committment to helping the children at the school as well as keeping the parents up to date with student progress.

My name is Anthony Braxton and i attended WCS for two years. Wakisha gave me a great learning experience. The work was extremly challenging, but you need to apply yourself to succeed in that school because the teachers are strict some students and parents would say they are 'mean' but that is not true ...  Read more
