The school was doing well when it was ran by Dr.Bouie now that Mrs.Johnson has come in she has changed the entire culture of the school and not for the better for the absolute WORST she is far from Christian she does everything last minute and half tailed and it has just caused the school to go down the drain bit by bit. She has caused teachers to not only quit in the middle of the school year but also choose not to return next year under her leadership as well as returning students choosing not to re enroll for the up in coming school year. Now don't get me wrong the academics are great anc the teaching staff is amazing it is just ran by terrible leadership which unfortunately leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

The new CLO (short for CLOWN) is Stacy Johnson. She is a terrible choice who they brought in last year. Parents hate her, teachers hate her. Eight or ten people, including a key employee (her assistant CLO) left before the year ended, even though they had to forfeit $5000. That tells you something. (BTW, Keith and Dr Wallace both bailed mid-year, too!) She is negative and harsh. No one likes her. Even 4 janitors have quit under her supreme reign. She looks for the worst in us all. She changed the bonus agreement AFTER we were all hired by previous CLO's, and you should know there has been a new "CLO" (principal) EVERY YEAR at this school. She renegged on the bonus structure we agreed to and made it impossible to get a bonus, which is lowdown. Some people are saying she told everyone something different, because she never put any of it in writing. She is running a once-great school into the ground by demoralizing everyone. The teachers who stay have online degrees. Families and teachers are leaving this TOXIC environment as fast as they can. She is insecure and fires any perceived threats to her ego, if they don't bail out first. ELEVEN EMPLOYEES GONE, year one. RUN.

This is my kids 2nd and last year there. The new CLO is going to be the downfall of the school. Stacy Johnson is rude,selfish, and lies to save face. It's very sad because at point this was the best school around, but now it's not. It's like the school doesn't care about the kids anymore. Well let me say Dr Wallace, Benny, and Keith are doing a great considering they don't have leadership. She doesn't represent the school good. It was just so much better last couple of years with out her.

The New CLO Stacy Johnson is not a good fit for the school. She is rude and stand off. She is not for the kids or parents she is all about her title. She doesn't care about the students, she expelled a straight A student because she didn't like the parent, but let a student stay who had knife at the school and told students she would use it. She waited a week later to let some of the parents know, some not all. She does just enough to save face. When parents started to reach out and try to voice their thoughts she shut us down, by letting us know she is the highest in command. But wanted to start a prayer meeting. Try and find a better family organized school, where they care about the kids 1st not what title they hold.

We have been at the Academy of scholars for 2 years and to date our experience has been a positive one. We chose this school for our child because of the Christian based values and the strict curriculum. The CLO position has changed from when we initially signed up but alot of the administration remained in place and the teachers that we have experienced have all been enthusiastic in regards to teaching the kids. The new CLO has been transparent and has given me no reason to be concerned with her management style rather with the staff or the kids. We reviewed her background and found that Ms. Johnsons work in the Ohio area was very impressive. Just like anything else you and your kids will get out what you put into your experience at the Academy. If your looking for school that will push your kids academically in the DeKalb area and also has a Christian foundation this is the school for you and if you do have questions about the new CLO do yourself a favor and stop by to meet her to form your own opinions about the school - we did and we feel it was the perfect fit for us.

The New CLO (Ms. Johnson's) actions are very disappointing.She shows lack of support for the students and parents. The school was great before she took over. Dr. Bouie worked great with the parents, students, and staff. This school has losts several teachers from lack of SUPPORT from the New CLO (Ms.Johnson).Please take your child elsewhere! Don't waste your time or MONEY!

Initial was very good. Leadership down to the admin staff. Recently under the new CLO..many parents are planning to remove their children because the non-cooperative relationship with the new CLO...parents cannot express their 1st amendment rights. If they do she threaten and has remove the child even if the child is a straight "A" student and the tuition has been paid in full. Make sure you read page 12 of the handbook. This school has the potential of being great if the current quote unquote "led by God" CLO is removed and replaced with an individual that knows how to communicate and work collaborative with the parents.
