Open Quote East Grand Preparatory charter school has been in it's new location at 6211 East Grand Avenue for four years now. They recently renovated the upper school building and it is very nice, open, and modern. The new gym is the most beautiful gym I have ever seen. The school has girl's volleyball and there is basketball for the boys, and our cheer leaders have so much fun cheering for our teams. The teachers really care about the students and I really like the fact that they do not tolerate bullying. My grandson gets lots of personal attention and he really loves his school. Close Quote

Open Quote My kids have been going here for 3 yrs now. The building on the playground side is gross and always dirty. It is an apartment building so strange people live there and walk around all the time. The bathrooms are always nasty. Nothing looks safe or clean anymore.

The playground has had a big hole in it all year, so my kids never got to play on it one time. They told us it would be fixed back at the start of the year.

Also, they have been saying for the last 3 years that the new school building was coming soon. That's part of why I have stayed so long. Every year they say they will have it next year.

I was excited when they starting the building across the street and they have been telling us that it was going to be the new school. But I just heard from a lady in the office that the building wasn't the school and it wasn't even part of the school. It's a youth center and there wont be any classrooms inside!

They keep lying to us. I wont be back again next year. Don't take your kids here, its not a safe place. 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.
