Aspire Schools (Oakland, CA)
HI. Is anyone familiar with Aspire Schools? Are they really ''separate'' from the local school district? What is the level of parent participation? the experience of the teachers? any information would be appreciated.
The organization is absolutely separate from OUSD. Their employees work so hard often on nights and weekends and can be too much for many teachers to keep up with the pace and expectations that are placed on them. It becomes a lifestyle for those who are dedicated and stay long term. I also know one teacher who left because the expectations and requirements were too much.
Depending on your location and academic goals for your child if there is an Aspire school in your area I would definitely recommend checking it out to see if it is a fit. parent of incoming K student
