  • Never send your child to Polaris Charter Academy. It is the worst school u could ever send your child to. They spend to much time taking the children on trips & not enough time teaching the children the Basic skills that they need to know to pass state test. Just look at the schools report card it speaks for it's self. They don't teach the children how to write on notebook paper. I had to transfer my child out of the school because she wasn't learning the basic skills that she needed to know (...) So if your thinking about sending your child to Polaris Charter Academy you better rethink your school choice.
