Review for SOAR Charter Academy, San Bernardino, CA, USA
Soar Charter Academy is a nonprofit charter school in the heart of San Bernardino, California. Despite the social economically depressed and crime ridden community this school serves as a beacon of light and hope to its many students. The teachers go above and beyond to create a safe haven where students are able to grow and flourish. They are challenged academically by a stimulating curriculum and a wide variety of extra curriculars including sports, technology clubs, music, and theatre. However, one of there most impressive accomplishments is its focus on character development, the students are challenged become independent thinkers and community leaders. Each student and class is involved in community service projects where they are taught the importance of giving back and helping others. The school upholds this responsibility in all its actions, donating extra cafeteria food and lost and found clothing to local homeless shelter, recycling trash, and opening its doors for townhall meetings with local city officials and police to encourage community growth and development.The teachers are nurturing and come to school everyday with an enthusiasm that is infectious. They are constantly researching and applying new ways to engage the students and their parents. They expand their school network by reaching out and engaging with local colleges, businesses, hospitals to help increase resources available to its students. In a community that can sometimes be labeled as broken and forgotten Soar Charter Academy and its students represent a bright future. I am proud and grateful to have my daughter be a part of Soar Charter Academy.
