Open Quote Global Outreach is an amazing school. My son loved going there because everyone was so helpful. If he struggled with any class, the teachers were always there to support him. Here you'll get the individualized attention you don't get in a regular public school. They also have an awesome soccer team! Close Quote

Open Quote Director /Principal and Dean have poor attitudes and feel they make their own rules because they area charter school. Very unprofessional when addressing issues that are brought to their attention.. Punishment and Rules that are implemented on children are far fetched and unreasonable. Mistake sending my children to this school Close Quote

Open Quote I like the size of the school. Not too big, classrooms are spacious. So far I've had the best teachers for my son. I would never think that teachers can care so much for their students as they did for my son. The school does many free events for the students. Another thing that I like is that my son is learning a few languages starting KG. I didn't hear of any school in the area that does that. As a parent, I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a safe, professional and fun environment for their children. Close Quote

Open Quote Global Outreach Charter Academy is the best school in Jacksonville that I would highly recommend to any parent. I am extremely pleased with their holistic approach to every child's development, starting from academics, sports, nutrition, social development. Just to mention, it is such a relief for me that Global Outreach Charter Academy provides all THREE (!!!) meals a day. I personally had an opportunity during orientation days to try the meals school will be serving this year, and must admit, food is simply amazing! Fresh fruits and vegetables every day with low fat sauces and dips to motivate children eat healthily. I mean I can rest my head knowing that my 6 Grader will be fed throughout the day, and more importantly, I know every single meal follows strict state standards. This is such an important benefit for me as a working mother with three children. Everything that Global Outreach Charter Academy does just deserves admiration! Amazing teachers, great principals, excellent curriculum, latest technology, nutritious free meals, great educational experience!!! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
