  • Kandy Stripe Academy is a great school.
    I am really impressed with my child's progress in this school. I agree with must work with our kids at home and not put all the blame on the school and teachers. We must work together as a team and support each others in teaching our kids.

  • My child is in pre-k and he is learning a lot in the past 7 months. As parents we need to remember to work with our child at home. Also all kid do not learn on the same level as their peers. This is a great school it could be better if more parents would help and be involved in their childrens' education.

  • I was hired to work after school programs and I just could not accept the position after one day! The school is chaotic. They do not follow the standard rules and procedures that any other education organization I have worked with does--children left unattended in classrooms, talking back, throwing things. Completely out of control. The administrators are not professional. An example of a charter school gone awry. I can't believe they are getting our tax dollars. School needs to be shut down. With a name like Kandy Stripes, it's no wonder: who names a school that? It's beyond creepy! And it is off the bat misspelling!

  • What are the students learning? My kids had to be tutored to catch up with piers in their grade level in math and reading in public school! Were they being passed for the school's financial gain? This was horrofiing for me and my kids!!!
