I am a parent of a student who was fortunate to get into this school for grade 7. She is neither an athlete nor a straight A student. She is, however, thriving and learning more than we could have imagined based on her 6th grade year at our community middle school. The biggest difference is the social ...  Read more

I have been going to Sussex Academy school from 6th to 8th grade. Bullying in this school happens everyday, not just to me but every around me. I am glad to be leaving this school this year. If i had to redo these last 3 years of my life, I would had never let my parents send me to this school. Some ...  Read more

Challenging curriculum/lots of homework: absolutely. But SA doesn't mislead anyone applying for admission about this fact. It's manageable, and teaches the kids time management and organizational skills. Bullying: I think the unfortunate truth is that bullying will happen in any school environment. ...  Read more

I have noticed people are saying that the school doesn't joudge because we wear uniforms but the truth is that we get judged by our shoes or hair ties or even hair styles. The school has way to many rich people and way too little african american or oreantal students. The school is a shame it is unfair, ...  Read more

This charter school should be INVESTIGATED. Work load is accelerated, organization is an absolute must, homework is more than other schools and grading system is totally biased. Nothing exemplary about the atmosphere! Bullying is VERY evident, both from the teachers and students. Too much is ignored. ...  Read more

This school is absoutely terrible. Not so much as the work, but the social atmosphere. Bullying is a definite problem, the athletes and 'A' students are favoritized, and some of the teachers are simply awful. The majority of the teachers get angry over petty things. Sure, this school may be advanced, ...  Read more

Sussex Academy is EXEMPLARY! Definitely a preparatory school. The content is challenging, engaging and hands on. The rules are strict and adhered to. The teachers are knowledgeable and dedicated. The whole school is a community. No clicks here. In fact the kids are very accepting of differences, yet ...  Read more

Sussex Academy is the school my daughter chose to go after shadowing at 6 private high schools! This is Sussex Academy first year offering High School and so far I am impress by how welcoming the staff has been to students and parents. Soon after my daughter's acceptance in April there has been constant ...  Read more

I agree with other parents who stated that parental involvement is discouraged. Also, the teachers aren't kid or parent friendly. I hated having my child feel so intimidated by teachers. I don't think this is the best learning environment. Students should feel at ease to ask questions, not feel they ...  Read more

Best school in this geographical area. Students are eager, curious, optimistic but most of all, proud of their own individual achievements in which they demonstrate in their personal portfolios. This school really enforces the principles of independent, critical and creative thinking into their educational ...  Read more
