Open Quote My children have been accepted to sankofa this upcoming school year, and we will appreciate if we can get parents reviews on the school before we allow them to attend. Close Quote

Open Quote Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter is an extremely unprofessional, unorganized school. Staff members are extremely rude to parents and students. Sankofa does NOT enforce it's own policies. This school shows favoritism to students who are related to staff members. The principle, Ayesha Imani, is an unprofessional, egotistical individual who does have the students best interest in mind. Ayesha Imani's only interest is to fill the seats of Sankofa with students for the sole purpose of receiving funding from the city and state. I regret sending my child to this school and I would NOT recommend another parent to send their child to this awful so called learning institution. 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.
